Like many classic pop-punk bands of my adolescence, it seems that Blowfish Sushi To Die For is “maturing with their diners,” as the restaurant debuts a substantially revised menu to compliment guests’ changing and advancing palates and culinary curiosity.
While maintaining the modern Japanese fusion cuisine, Blowfish will offer more items with a European influence. Here’s a sneak peek at the new items on the Blowfish Sushi To Die For menu:
- Lost in The Forest: sautéed Hokkaido scallops with asparagus, baby arugula & a hint of pistachio pesto
- Seoul Tartare: red tuna tartare mixed with a spicy & sweet sesame miso, chopped fuji apple, cucumber & a side of crisp tortillas & Korean salted nori
- Halibut Crudo: thinly sliced halibut drizzled with white truffle oil & mango salsa with wasabi tobiko and American caviar
- Tenkomori: Hawaiian walu & hiramasa, tokusei ra-yu, citrus pepper & salmon row with gokosai radish mix, crispy tempura bits & white truffle oil.
- Black Cod: marinated in saikyo miso on top of shimeji mushroom risotto, served with a small side salad
To compliment the updated menu, Blowfish also revamped the décor with a series of art exhibits curated by Christine Kristen aka LadyBee.
The updated menu appears at the Santana Row (San Jose) location of Blowfish Sushi To Die For as well.
