A Gu Gu Sushi Milestone

It is no secret that my favorite place to get sushi is at Gu Gu Sushi & Roll in Hermosa Beach. I have been dining there for almost two years, and have yet to leave disappointed. In fact, one of the things I enjoy the most about Gu Gu, is that it really does not matter what I order, I know it is going to be good.

Gu Gu has close to 200 various rolls and sashimi available. They have multiple menus and I decided I wanted to try every roll they offered, so I took one of their menus and started at the top. There are close to 80 rolls on this particular menu and I have now tried them all. Next up, their laminated menu. I have already tried most of the rolls on that menu, but I know I missed some, so I will start at the top and work my way through it again. I am totally looking forward to this.



If you follow my adventures enough to be looking at these specific words, you probably picked up on the fact that I am a huge fan of Gu Gu Sushi & Roll, in Hermosa Beach, CA. I have introduced people from around the globe to this sushi goodness. No one has ever left disappointed. This can be attributed to a fantastic menu, the freshest ingredients, and two great chefs. I recently discovered that one of the two, Alex, has turned in his two weeks notice. He asked me to come in one last time before he left.

Two friends and I went there last night to say goodbye. Alex asked if I would let him present his own creations, and there was no way I would say no. It was a great decision. Alex made up a few “Alex Specials” and they were fantastic. My picture of the day for day 362 is of Alex and me. Enjoy your travels, my friend and I look forward to my next dining adventure with you.

Ever Changing

I had not been to Gu Gu Sushi in a couple of weeks for some unexplainable reason, so Catherine (my long time friend and assistant) went out last night to celebrate her birthday. Luckily, we both enjoy Gu Gu’s sushi.

My picture of the day for Friday is the latest version of the roll. The original version was quite timely to prepare, so Song has been modifying it as he goes along. This is actually a great dish for someone that is just getting into sushi and is not comfortable with the whole raw fish thing.
