(My other favorite is a Thai restaurant).
Wherever I travel, I always like to try sushi. I have even had the pleasure of lunching with the head of cruise ship sales from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, in Nagasaki. (He knew a GREAT place, but I doubt that I could ever find it again without his help).
Sakai, is certainly on a par with any of them, and much better than most.
I like the fact that Sakai serves not only delicately delicious sushi, but also spicy Korean dishes when I really want my taste buds smacked about. Try the Spicy Squid Bokum.
The sushi is fresh and generous. I like the small "Sushi and Sashimi Platter", just for myself. Add the Pahn Chan set ($5.00) for a variety of 3 small plates of interesting veggies, usually including kimchi, bean sprouts, and some pickled cucumber and onion slices. This adds refreshing vegetable taste to the more delicate sushi dishes, and cools the spicy Korean ones. The soft shell crab appetizer is a great way to start. If you do not really like raw fish have the Teriyaki salmon, and where would you ever get a fresher and tastier salmon than in a sushi restaurant?
When the bill comes, it is accompanied by a small dish of 3 palate cleaning morsels. Usually chunks of cantaloupe, honey dew melon, and a single large grape. Perfect ending to a perfect meal.
Not exactly cheap, but not overly expensive either. Dinner for 2, without alcohol, is usually around $60, before tip.
