We recently got a tip from our friends at the Sake Shop: A new sushi bar has opened up in the Keeaumoku neighborhood. It’s in Samsung Plaza, where our former beloved #1 I Love Sushi once stood. The owner is the former sushi chef from the once wildly popular Natsunoya Tea House sushi bar, and — bonus! — it’s BYOB.

It’s in my neighborhood, which Mari Taketa and I both love. Mari, in fact, misses the comfort of I Love Sushi. Whether either of us stopped in with friends or just to grab a bite mid-afternoon, the friendly mama-san bustled over us and made off-menu dishes like her homey nabeyaki udon.

Now Mari and I grab a bottle of Dassai 50 sake and head over to check it out.
