I was looking for places to eat on the trip. I was craving sushi, and I found a restaurant called 104 Sushi & Co. just 3 minutes away from where we were staying. They offer a mix of Japanese and Korean dishes, but mostly Japanese, so I decided to give it a try.
I ordered the Oyako Don, which came with a bowl of miso soup. The Oyako Don was a decent sized bowl, with lots of delicious moist chicken, egg, onions, sesame and the sauce. It was pretty good. The chicken was very tender and still had the skin on, but the sauce was nice and the rice just right when mixed together.
I also ordered the Agedashi Tofu, which were fried and were very light. The sauce was good, and wasn’t super salty even if the tofu sat in there for a while. I also ordered a couple pieces of Tamago nigiri which were decent.
My friends ordered a bunch of things too. It seems like everything fried was done quite well. Not thick on the batter, and very light. The Yam Tempura was crunchy, but the yam was cooked just right. Thin cut, and tender, but not limp, and seasoned lightly.
The Chicken Karaage was really good, too. Moist, boneless chicken with a thin crisp batter and a mix of sauces. Gyoza had nice browning, and moist and juicy inside. Volcano Roll with salmon, prawn, avocado on the inside, and chopped scallop, salmon roe, and spicy sauce on the outside. Both rolls were done pretty well. Unagi nigiri was a bit inconsistent with the size of the unagi, but it still tasted good. My friends also ordered some sashimi which were trimmed of any extra fat, so it all had a nice even texture, but it was cut a bit rough.
Overall, I’d recommend this place in a pinch. There are probably better sushi places, but this one fit the bill for the time.
