After 6 years of gazing longingly through the window and drooling, I finally ate at Iron Chef Morimoto’s restaurant in Philadelphia.

It lived up to expectations and then some.

We started with a Sake Sangria which was uberyummy.

Then had the Chef’s Selection of Sushi.

There was a soft shell crab roll, medium fatty tuna, ahi tuna, salmon, shrimp and several other extremely delicious fishes that weren’t wearing name tags.

We also had a delicious platter of oh-toro sashimi. Oh-toro is fatty tuna, the Ferarri of sushi.

Main courses:
Ishi Yaki Bop with Yellowtail – a rice dish prepared tableside in a 400 degree river stone bowl.

Seafood ‘toban yaki’ – A sort-of bouilliabase with king crab legs, shrimp, scallops, new Zealand mussels, shanghai greens and citrus butter.
