Hidden Fish The Hidden Gem

After months of anticipation I was finally able to enjoy an evening of dining at San Diego’s first Omakase-only sushi spot, Hidden Fish. The concept is that guest will be able to enjoy a 30 min 12 piece or 90 min 18 piece Omakase (meaning I’ll leave it up to you) menu. Chef John Hong, also known as Chef Kappa, was previously at the helm of Bang Bang. This intimate dining experience was extra special because I was able to not only watch Chef Kappa work, but also listen to him share why he chooses certain fish as well as cutting techniques. When an artist’s work is accompanied by insight it adds such value. Chef guided our palate through a wonderful ride of yellow tail belly, sea urchin, toro tartare, octopus and much more. I’d have to say that my top 3 favorites were Amberjack with black truffle, marinated Bigeye tuna, and the local cod. It was truly a night to remember and one I look forward to sharing with many friends. Reservations book out in advance, so check out their Resy account. Thursday nights are a good night to go if you’re looking for crowd more geared towards singles and a sexy sushi experience – just saying. Their small lounge makes for a nice spot to sip some sake before or after your dinner, so arrive early and stay late! Check out the video below and be sure to follow them.
