Hachi Review - Omakase in West LA

Hachi on Wilshire Blvd in West LA is our go-to sushi spot when we aren't making our own handrolls at home.  We had Chef Masa's omakase on Thursday night.  The fish is really good with a lot of interesting varieties.  Every dish is meticulously presented with the perfect sauce and garnishes in a thoughtful order.  It was more pricey than usual at $90 a person, but we did get a lot of varieties of the more expensive fish, like 4 different kinds of toro, plus a ton of food. Update 4/1/11: unfortunately our two favorite chefs, Chef Masa and Chef Nobu, are no longer at Hachi.
Ankimo (Monkfish liver), Toro (Tuna Belly), Tako (Octopus)
Tai (Snapper), Kanpachi, Uni with Ika (Salmon Roe) and Wakame (Seaweed)
Chef Masa San in action
O-Toro with ponzu daikon dipping sauce; really interesting with the sauce which was a refreshing match for the rich fish
Chawan Mushi - egg custard with a little shrimp and mushroom
Halibut with yuzu
Mirugai (giant clam) and toro
Scallop and the best uni I've ever had (from Santa Barbara)
Tamago (egg)
Anago (Freshwater eel)
Negi toro handroll (fatty tuna and scallions)
Kabocha custard with ice cream and mochi
We started with a bottle of 2007 Far Niente Chardonnay, followed by a 2008 Sea Smoke Southing Pinot Noir, both of which went really well with the fish
