American Sushi House - Restaurant Review
While I am not a fan of Japanese food I have to say that American Sushi House in Pacifica has turned me into a fan. My friend introduced me to this restaurant a few years ago and I have been back a few times since then including dinner last night before a concert in Foster City.
There are many things that stand out about this restaurant. First the decor is charming with white lanterns and Japanese flower baskets and paintings adorning the walls. I also love all those sake bottles behind the sushi bar and have tasted many of them, thanks to my friend Carmen along the way.
The owners and staff are probably some of the most friendly people I've met in any restaurant. They're sweet, accommodating and are always there to help and serve you.
I do not eat sushi so whenever I go I always order the tempura. Both the shrimp and vegetable tempura are delectable with huge portions. The salad which comes with the entree is very tasty as is the miso soup. The dinners are filling, satisfying and inexpensively priced for the portions you receive.
The sake? Believe me when I say it's all good. This restaurant is only about a twenty minute drive from San Francisco and is well worth a visit if you are in the area. They do not have a website so you can click here for their Yelp page.
