Day 9

Sushi Groove South

Paul and I grabbed an early dinner at Sushi Groove South about a month ago before we went shopping at Costco (we actually parked in the Costco lot and walked over there but I would suggest circling by the restaurant once first if you're comfortable with street parking).

We got there just after six (on a weekday) and the restaurant already had several patrons, but we were definitely amongst the first few and didn't need a reservation.

Neither of us was especially hungry so we just ordered a few dishes to split. All of them were delicious and to date this is still the only Japanese restaurant in the Bay Area that Paul will admit he likes. In fact, this is probably going to end up being one of the few places he's willing to eat at more than once or twice.

The seabass was amazing! So tender and flavorful, and very nicely priced - right around $15 if my memory serves...which is a steal considering it's a relatively large portion and the seabass at House costs $19 at lunch and even more for dinner. (But to be fair, it is a main course at House and comes with a sides of mashed potatoes and veggies...still though the portion sizes of the fish itself were very comparable and the quality at SGS might have been slightly better). As you can see I am a big fan of seabass, but anyway, moving on...

I forget what kind of rolls these are, although I'm pretty sure the smaller one with the black roe sprinkled on it is a lobster roll. The other looks to be some sort of tempura roll with albacore on top. Whatever they were, I do remember them tasting good!

Restaurant Review: Mama's

Yesterday, I finally convinced Paul that we should go to The House for lunch because I've been craving the sea bass for awhile now. But when we passed Mama's on the way and there were only two groups in line, I jumped at the chance to finally try this place since I'm not willing to deal with the usual wait (easily an hour or more).

I got the prosciutto and tomato benedict and to be perfectly honest I wasn't overly impressed with it. Paul got their classic benedict on his only other trip here (I was at my parents so he braved the line on his own) and he says it's better than the prosciutto and tomato so maybe if hell freezes over again and there's no line I'll try that.

Paul tried the Vince's Chicken this time and said said it was pretty good but not worth waiting in the usual line for.

All in all, I'm not totally sure why this place is able to stay in business with its ridiculous wait times. It's mostly hype and truly not worth the wait. If it's a Sunday, go to Moose's across the street, their food is better quality and only costs a few dollars more anyway. If you happen to see a short line, it's worth trying but don't wait for it.
