Restaurant Review – BASHO

21 Jan

Time to mix things up a bit. I have yet to find a sushi place in the Boston area that comes close to challenging NOLA’s Sake Cafe II, Rock n’ Sake or Mikimoto. Tonight, I tried BASHO in the Fenway area. It’s owned by the same people who run Douzo but I must say that I prefer Douzo to Basho.

Spicy Tuna Roll prices range from $5.50 – $7. BASHO ran right in the top end of that range. It wasn’t very spicy and needed soy sauce for flavor. Also tried the Snow Mountain Roll that had shrimp tempura with “snow crab” on top. I’m used to the snow crab in a crunchy roll (also something I don’t see up here very often). This was fishy tasting and also needed some flavoring.

Overall service was pretty slow even though it wasn’t very busy. My date commented that our server seemed like he was half asleep.The green tea was served by the cup and wasn’t very hot the second pour.

If this was a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being the best) it’d be at a 6 with the help of the ambiance.

The hunt for great sushi in the Boston area continues!!

Remember, keep it c’est si yum!
