Omakase and delicious wonderment at Oishii Asian Fusion in Mount Kisco, NY

My lady was so kind as to take me out to an incredible dinner the other night.  Being that it was my choice, we went out for sushi, and managed to have quite the incredible meal at Oishii Asian Fusion.

Since I was the birthday boy, I sat us down right at the sushi bar, as I enjoy seeing the Itamae work his magic.  The lady doesn't enjoy much fish, and doesn't like it at all raw - kind of a jack sprat situation I suppose - so she ordered some hot food while I enjoyed the Omakase.

When I told them it was my birthday, they brought out this small appetizer for us to snack on - I couldn't tell you what was in in, except some sort of breaded white fish, tasty sweet sauce and some fish eggs (looks like tobiko) on the top.

Some kind of white fish inside and delicious sauce - a nice little snack before the meal.  Thanks guys!

Now they had three iterations of Omakase on the menu - $60, $80, and $100.  I could get into large description and discussion of Omakase - but for the purposes of this post, I'll just provide a minimum of background.  Omakase means "Trust the chef" or "I'll leave it to you" - depending on whom you ask. Basically you're letting the Itamae (sushi chef) make your meal for you, choosing which fish you eat and what you get on your plate.  Typically, the chef will give you some of the best fish and whatever specials the kitchen has available.  It also shows respect for the chef in that you're entrusting him to provide you the best experience.

Oishii makes a delicious cooked roll too - Chicken Tempura and Sweet Potato Tempura rolls!
I ordered the $60 Omakase, as I wanted to see what they could do with at that price point - and also, being treated by the lady, I wanted to be reasonable :)  Anyhow, the chef who helped us was quite happy with our selection, and he got to work.

We started the meal with a large tokuri of hot sake.  I do have a taste for finer ginjo and junmai ginjo sake, but let me tell you - nothing beats a tokuri of cheap, hot sake.  We had two of them over the course  of the meal and it was just what the doctor ordered.

My Omakase apparently came with a soup and salad for me and the lady, so we opted for soup.  One of the ways I judge a sushi restaurant is by the quality of their miso soup, and Oishii does not disappoint.  No pictures of the soup, but if you're seen miso soup - see?  You know what it looks like :)  Savory broth, chunks of tofu and seaweed.. Yummy!

The lady ordered sweet potato tempura and chicken tempura rolls, and then vegetable udon to round out her meal.  I didn't actually try either of her tempura rolls but she said they were fantastic, and they certainly looked delicious.  The vegetable udon was a good sized portion and we brought home some of it - it was a tasty breakfast the next day! :)

Here we have my Omakase - this was an absolute feast for the senses.  We had 10 pieces of Sushi in front - Tuna, Yellowtail, baby Yellowtail, Salmon, and Fluke.  In the middle there we had a TNT roll - this was spicy tuna and avocado in the middle, topped with tuna on top.  In the back there you can see my favorite part - 18 pieces of delicious sashimi.  We have your standard Tuna, Yellowtail, baby Yellowtail, and salmon .. but there were also two more unusual fish, Sweet Lips and Alfonsino.

And incredible plate of fish - Omakase at Oishii Asian Fusion
Tuna, baby Yellowtail, Salmon, Yellowtail, Fluke, Alfonsino and Sweet Lips, and a TNT roll.  Best sushi meal ever.
The sushi portion was delicious - the fish was all delicious and exceedingly fresh, and served at just the perfect temperature.  The TNT roll?  It was quite yummy, and about what you'd expect.  Spicy tuna is always tasty, although I generally don't get it as I prefer the subtler taste and texture of the plain fish, with perhaps just a touch of soy.

The sashimi was absolutely fantastic.  I can say I've never had superior sushi - Oishii does it quite well.   Each piece was cut perfectly, and the taste and texture were simply divine.  I hadn't heard of the two fish I tried, the Sweet Lips and the Alfonsino, prior to this meal - it was fun when I got home to take a look at them online.  The texture of the fish was incredible, and everything was top notch.

It's worth noting that the wasabi tasted fresh grated and was very potent, unlike the typical green goo that you get served sometimes.  Kudos, Oishii!

For dessert, they gave us a nice dish of ice cream - one scoop vanilla, one scoop green tea.  Real whipped cream too, a nice touch.

All in all, this meal was a solid 9.5/10.  The fact that my lady was so kind as to treat me to such a delicious meal on my birthday just made it that much more enjoyable.  I'd highly recommend you check out Oishii in Mount kisco - they've been around for a few years now, make solid asian fusion-style hot dishes, and a fantastic sushi plate.

I've actually been there a number of times before, and the sushi is reasonably priced (as sushi goes) and always of an excellent quality.

I hope my musings have whetted your appetite - maybe you'll have to go check them out.

This is what the base level of Omakase at Oishii gets you.  A decent value as sushi goes.  Everything was absolutely delicious!
KANPAI!
