A Review: Sakanaya!

Imagine my surprise on Sunday, less than 24 hours after returning to Earth, to discover: Sakanaya.  Located on a small side street in Allston.  Being in this fish store, which opened only a week prior, was like being back in Tokyo.

Sakana, in Japanese, means fish.  I ought to know.  Oh, the many, many times I’ve said to Japanese wait staff: “Sakana deke!”  Meaning: “Only fish.”  (Shellfish allergies.)

Small cuts of beautiful sushi-grade fish.  Shelves of basic Japanese pantry items.  Fresh, shredded daikon.  Ajitsuke Ajari Age.  Iraq, Iran.  Sushi to go.  Fish to make your own sashimi.

Get those knife skills going!

Anyhoo, as mom would say: The place is the best Japanese fish store I’ve ever seen in the U.S.

Dude who runs it?  Chill, too.
