Koto Salem

On this beautiful Sunday, I headed up to historical Salem for some half-priced Sushi at Koto Grill & Sushi. They have this deal on Sundays and Mondays from 1:00 to 7:00. Alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage purchase required.

On street metered parking but it's free on Sundays. There is also a big parking garage just around the corner.

The first thing you see is an enormous sushi bar. There is also table seating next to the front windows.

The half price Sushi is from a separate menu but it was a good selection. What they call Sushi, I call Nigiri.

I love tuna, so I started with the Tuna Tataki (6). "Thinly sliced tuna drizzled with lemon soy sauce". If this is what I got for $12 I might be a little disappointed. The lightly seared tuna was nicely seasoned with a tasty sauce. A good deal for $6.

Two Salmon Nigiri (3 each) was some nicely cut salmon with an appropriate amount of rice underneath. The rice was a bit too cold and could have done with some more seasoning, but the salmon was excellent. The enormous maki that you see is the Ninja Maki (8). "Tempura crab stick, Salmon, Tuna, Asparagus and Cucumber. Topped with Black Tobiko". This was an excellent Maki, a good amount of fish even if the tempura crab stick was going soft but the tobiko on the outside was a nice touch. The asparagus was absent.

There is a big room in the back where they have live music and karaoke.
