ICHI Kakiya – Japanese Oyster Bar

Hottest new restaurant in SF? Best bar and restaurant? Walking all the way down to Mission Street from Bart, my destination is this Japanese oyster bar.

Ichi Kakiya, the sister restaurant to Ichi Sushi + N Bar, is a raw and oyster bar intimated by a group of Chef where serves market fresh seafood and dishes that are full of inspiration and energy.

Everything being served here is either raw or Japanese inspired, equally decent to look at given they are all tiny portioned.

The popular raw scallop with salmon roes comes with a plate of nori. It is eaten like a taco, and the notable kombu pickle puree has indeed added a nice zing!

Nonetheless I was completely disappointed by the replacement of lobster roll with Japanese egg salad roll on their menu, the hot ocean trout fillet is still amazing to warm the heart, even though it was a bit too salty with the miso marinate.

After all, it is still a great Japanese fusion restaurant that worth a try but do expect it to come with a slightly high price tag.
