Just a few minutes away from San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge, lies the picturesque waterfront community of Sausalito. It’s in this charming area that Yoshi Tome opened his highly acclaimed Sushi Ran.
Having received a prestigious Michelin star, the chefs at Sushi Ran work hard at the ever-changing menu that combines traditional Japanese and Pacific cuisine.
The fish here is very fresh and the cuisine is inventive. The service was friendly and efficient.
The restaurant has a sushi bar and main dinning room and an adjacent sake bar too.
Here is some of what we ate:
This was a true California cuisine salad. It had fresh crab, cucumbers, avocado, tofu and crisp mixed greens with delicious sesame dressing. Everything was just fresh fresh fresh! Outstanding!
This roll was highly recommended by our server and he was right on the money with this one. It was the best roll we had. The eel, spicy crab, shrimp and avocado melded beautifully with each other while the tempura flakes added a perfect bite of crunch to it.
SALMON & AVOCADO ROLLS
These were very good. The salmon was fresh and melted with the avocado in this roll.
These rolls made with fatty tuna, grilled green onions and fresh scallions were really interesting. I loved the play of the grilled and fresh scallions with the fish.
SPICY TUNA ROLL
This was a different take on the traditional spicy tuna roll. Served with chunks of tuna, miso aioli and togarashi – it was rather unique – not exquisite but interesting.
SOFT SHELL CRAB ROLL & EBI TEMPURA ROLLS
I wasn’t very impressed with their soft shell crab and tempura roll.
SALMON & TUNA SUSHI
Their sushi was not as impressive as their rolls.
