Kome received recognition from Bon Appetit making their top 10 best new sushi restaurants in the country. Their menu is creative and well rounded. At lunch time you will find great lunch combos, rice bowls, and noodle soups.
At dinner time they serve a variety of Izakaya style dishes such as yaki-onigiri (grilled rice balls), takoyaki (octopus dumplings) and Kome viche (ceviche made with madai, salmon and mango).
Three of my favorite rolls at Kome are the Endo in New York, Love for Sale and Midnight Sun. Endo in New York is a healthy sashimi spring roll with fresh sea bass and salmon sashimi, tobiko cucumber, carrots a hint of cilantro served with a Thai chili sauce.
Love For Sale makes my taste buds sing. This roll has fresh salmon, lettuce, mango, avocado, carrots, asparagus, sprouts topped with mango sauce.
Midnight Sun is the perfect option for those who prefer their fish smoked or cooked. The midnight sun has a wonderful contrast of flavor with smoked salmon, complimented with cream cheese, creamy avocado, candied jalapeno topped with sunflower seeds and their tempera sauce.
Chefs Kayo and Takehiro owned the former Sushi-A-Go-Go trailers. You can find most if not all of their beloved Sushi-A-Go-Go rolls rolls on Kome\’s sushi menu.
They fly in fish from the Tsujaki market weekly. Last week I stopped in and had one if their specials form the market, Tsujaki nigiri. These delicate pieces of madai, baby yellow tail and bonito are carefully paired with ingredients such as mint and tobiko creating explosive flavors.
Words to live by, always save room for dessert. Kome serves a killer cheesecake made with kasu from Texas Sake Company with a touch of crystallized ginger. Make sure to pair it with sake form Texas Sake Company.
