Sushi Sasabune - Snapper and Halibut nigiri

Popcorn Sushi (“But again, no soy please.”)

Here are some pictures from a birthday party at Sushi Sasabune, the Honolulu omakase where the approach to soy leaves no room for nonsense.  Above, the halibut (left, no soy please) and the snapper (right, soy sauce permitted).

Most dishes were (per instructions) a single bite, served in pairs, like this plating: nigiri of king salmon (soy) and scallop with yuzu koshi (no soy). It was, to this non-connoisseur, popcorn dining.  The fish melted into thin air, chased by the faintest brushstrokes of lemon sea salt, green onion, miso, wasabi, toasted sesame.
