Nom Nom Nom – Review: Fuji Restaurant

This week, here comes another sushi restaurant post! If you haven’t noticed by now already, I eat a lot of Japanese food hahahaha. And there’s nothing wrong with that, cause I just loveeeee Japanese food and sushi! Mmm yum yum. Anyways, this review will be for Fuji Restaurant (the old one, not the new one), located in Quincy, MA.

Review Date: August 2010

First, for some appetizers: we had ordered the Agadashi Tofu and the Tako-Su. The Tako-Su is just some slices of octopus seasoned in some vinegar. It tasted okay, kinda sour, because mainly of the vinegar. The Agadashi Tofu tasted good though. It was my first time having it and it makes me want to try it at some other places now too just to compare. It is basically fried tofu in some light broth. Even though we had ordered that first, it was the last thing to come out. We thought they had forgot, but I guess they were just either too busy in the kitchen or it really took a while to make. Either way, it was worth the wait, in my opinion. At least it came out piping hot. Here’s a word of warning to you: before you decide to pop the tofu in your mouth, make sure to let them cool down a bit first cause that was my mistake and I almost burned my mouth and tongue as a result.

Of course, since this is a sushi restaurant, we had to order a few pieces of sashimi as well, which included sake (salmon), toro (fatty tuna), and hamachi (yellowtail)?? Sashimi came out 3 pieces for each type of fish and the pieces were cut pretty big too so that was a plus; more bang for your buck. After eating the appetizers, sushi, and the miso soup and salad that came with our main meals, I was getting pretty full already and our entrees haven’t even come out yet!

Now for our main meals, we had ordered the Chirashi, which is just some assorted raw fish over a bed of seasoned rice, so pretty much “sashimi on rice.” Like the sashimi, the slices of fish that came with it were huge, so this dish was more than filling for me. Eating this dish with some soy sauce and wasabi added into it made me licking my chops and wanting some more at the end… only if I wasn’t so full already. Mmm nom nom nom!

Overall, I would say this is a pretty good place. Good food, good service. I can’t think of anything that I would complain about. There was a little wait to be seated though, which was pretty odd, especially for 9pm on a Tuesday night, but we didn’t have to wait too long though, maybe 8 min?

Money: $$$ (out of 4)

Good date place? Yes, any Japanese sushi restaurant would be suitable to go on a date in my opinion ๐Ÿ˜‰

Grade: A

Would I return? (Yay or nay): Yay. And it wouldn’t matter if I had a date or not ๐Ÿ™‚

    HHmmmmm the toro was sliced thinly for me, it was marbled pretty nicely though, but kinda thin. I prefer Blue Fin’s agedashi tofu, their version is more traditional with the clear soryu-dashi broth. And when I ask if I can have something off the menu like Ikura-Uni don, the waitress said no and said the Uni is too expensive, Blue Fin has it and it was great. hhhmmm we had the scallops, the scallops where good as sashimi.
