Do not be fooled by the rolls with names such as Marilyn Monroll and Me Soy Horny. Take in a live amaebi and prepare to be floored. The flesh is predictably crunchy and sweet, but watch what they do the heads,: the antennae are gilded in a thin shimmer of tempura batter that hang off like dew drops while the whole head gets rendered into an edible sea chicharrón. Then have some uni, so sweet you swear it was made of egg yolk-y custard. Finally, the hamachi kama, which has to be the best rendition of the grilled fish collar anywhere--smoky down to the cellular level, skin gilded in char, flesh supple as fat. And those rolls with the cringe-worthy names are even marvelous too!
