SF sushi search: Koo

My favorite neighborhood in all of San Francisco might be the Inner Sunset. It’s central, charming, community-oriented, and (importantly) full of good eats. I’ve sampled a fair share of them, as I’ve worked and Jay’s lived nearby for some time. Only recently, however, have I tried Koo, a lovely sushi spot right off the N-Judah streetcar route.

We began with the highly-recommended Spoonfuls of Happiness: a spoonful of uni, quail egg, tobiko ponzu; a spoonful of ankimo wrapped with whitefish, white truffle-oil ponzu; and a shot of chilled sake, to be sipped with the aforementioned. It was a totally worthwhile indulgence.

For mains, we ordered the sashimi combo and unagi nigiri. I had a mad hankering for eel, and the latter definitely pleased my palate. Each bite was so simple and fresh — delicious.


Koo is perfect for a first date: quiet, intimate ambiance; intriguing, authentic menu; and sweet, accommodating servers. We’ll definitely be back.
