Cold tofu dissolves on tongue. Scallion bits crunch.

Miso black cod melts in your mouth, hint of sweetness lingers.

Slightly warmed rice gives new life to fresh and succulent fish. Unctuous uni and silky botan ebi leave me with eyes aglaze.

Tempura fried bananas corrupt.

Cotan reduces me to poetry.

Seriously, though. This place is legit underrated. Quality of sushi vs. price makes it an incredible steal, and the non-sushi fare was excellent, as well. This is not the place you go for sexy ambiance or cheap sushi. You go here because the food makes it so effing worthwhile. The sushi deluxe (9 pieces) includes uni (sea urchin) and a tuna roll that made my eyes roll into the back of my head. Yeah. It was that good.

Eat: Cotan. 135 1st Ave at St. Mark’s.
