The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version:
Fresh sushi and friendly service.
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:
OToro was the first sushi restaurant in San Francisco that gave me hope. I know LA v. SF will be a forever war and there’s certain things that I love about each. However, LA has the sushi scene on lock down. It isn’t a chore to find a fresh sushi place that will satisfy the cravings. However, when I first tried OToro, I got hope that maybe, just maybe, there were gems in SF that were worth discovering.
The restaurant is pretty small and during peak hours, does get pretty full, but I’ve never had to wait long and the service is always pretty quick.
What we ate:
- Miso soup
- Nigiri ($5-10 each order)
There isn’t too much to say about miso soup, but OToro’s version is super flavorful and very tasty.
Consistently fresh and well served. This may not be the best you’ve ever had, but you’ll always walk away with a good meal – no frills, simple and always tasty.
