Fuji Japanese

Today I escorted the parents and some family friends around the Bay Area and ended up in an unknown neighborhood looking for Japanese food. Though it can be confusing, I love how every other street in San Francisco is considered its own distinct neighborhood–apparently we were in the “West Portal” which sounds like something out of the Matrix.

As usual, my mom requested Japanese, and this was the first place we passed.

A super cluttered albeit colorful aerial view. Let's take a closer look for fun...

The udon portion of I's tempura udon.

Fuji has a lot of crazy rolls but my mom was the only one smart enough to order them. A Tanzania roll with yellowtail&Co. and unagi roll.

I’d just eaten breakfast and was planning on picking off my parents’ plates, but after we finished ordering I spotted a “Special Salads” menu. I immediately I flagged down the waitress and ordered a roasted vegetable salad (7.5). Turned out to be a bed of lettuce with a mayo-heavy sauce and a few vegetables (the same they use for tempura)--kabocha, sweet potato, carrot, zucchini, asparagus and broccoli. I know a Japanese restaurant is not the place to get my greens on but the idealist in me believes that a hearty salad in every Californian restaurant is not too much to ask.

I’ve been working too much and eating cheap takeout lately but after Fuji I’m determined to start making kick-ass salads at home again. Stay tuned for Actually Special Salads!
