SOS Eats at the First Sustainable Sushi Restaurant in California (and Maybe the U.S.), Tataki!

While SOS staff was in San Francisco for the Green Festival we decided to eat some guilt free sushi at the sustainable sushi restaurant Tataki.

Most of the Save Our Shores staff has stopped eating seafood because of how much we know about the state of most fisheries of the world, but we were excited to eat seafood we knew was sustainable. Casson Trenor, one of the owners of the restaurant, is a friend of SOS and the author of Sustainable Sushi: A Guide to Saving the Oceans One Bite at a Time, so we knew all of the fish on the menu went through a thorough screening.

We started with the Crab Croquette which is deep fried crab with sweet potatoes and a sweet sauce, major hit with everyone! Then we shared a few rolls but our favorites were the double-double, tataki deluxe, reggae roll and the hot potato roll. They all came with a great sauce and were very flavorful. Although the actual restaurant was smaller than most, the decor was very vibrant and exotic. Most of the walls were full of all of their amazing media coverage including an article in Time Magazine.

So if you are like us and feel like there is no place to get real sustainable sushi, visit Tataki if you are ever in San Francisco, you will not be disappointed!
