Blowfish Sushi Blows My Mind

I went to Blowfish Sushi, in Santana Row (San Jose, CA) with one of my dearest friends tonight. We started off with the Pyramid of Tartar: layers of very fresh tuna, salmon, avocado with honey glaze, sweet ginger sauce and house made potato chips. It was such a fantastic dish.

We also ordered a few maki rolls: the $o$uMi, the Dragon, & a blazing variation of the Spicy Tuna roll (can't remember the name) that could literally blow a small town to pieces. The rolls, overall, were pretty good, but not very memorable...

That said, what did absolutely blow my mind was dessert - the Treasure Twenty: banana flambé crepe and lychee ice cream, served with fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries). While I was bummed that there wasn't a fire show with the flambé, the dish was soo light and well balanced that we ended up consuming the entire thing.

And though I feel as if I may give birth to a Japanese food-baby at any moment, the cause was TOTALLY worth it!
