Lunchtime and I was looking for sushi. In the Memphis suburb of Collierville, Fuji Cafe was right across the street from my customer. After enjoying Memphis Barbeque at Corky’s last night, I decided to try some not so traditional Memphis sushi. Hana is exactly the kind of sushi restaurant I enjoy.
Fuji Cafe is larger than it looks like from the outside. The decor is pretty typical of a Japanese restaurant. The seating was strange with several very large booths. It looked like they seated multiple parties there. The menus were pretty unique, not the contents but the presentation. The covers front and back were thick and heavy almost like floor tiles.
When I sat down my waitress brought me a hot towel and some Miso soup, a nice touch. I ordered some fried pork gyoza and the Chirashi. Chirashi is sashimi served on a bowl of sushi rice. Fuji’s chirashi was especially nice, it came with two slices of yellow daikon (one of my favorites) and a nice portion of seaweed.
The fish was very good. It included a crab stick an one cooked shrimp. There was also some tuna, yellowtail, salmon and white tuna. The white tuna was especially good, I even enjoyed the spicy garnish. To top it off there were two pieces of tamago sweet omelette.
Fuji was exactly what I needed.
