I was in Washington DC for a week of meetings and trainings.  The consultant is a foodie and befriended the owner of Sushi Taro, a Japanese-owned restaurant near Dupont Circle.  Our group of nine went there and tried the omakase (raw fish tasting menu).  While we were there, the food critic at the Washington Post was visiting and sat at the sushi counter all by himself, we were told by the owner.  I thought critics are supposed to visit the establishment incognito.

We went all-out: ordered extra Toro, grounded our own wasabi using a piece of rough shark skin, and I had my two pieces of uni sushi (after a “uni drought” of several months in Switzerland).   It was good – recommendable.

You may have noticed that the color of the pictures shown here are a bit off.  I wonder if there is something wrong with my monitor or I forgot to adjust the color temperature.
