Aomatsu Sushi & Grill

Raising five kids makes it nearly impossible sometimes to plan a date night out on the town. But tonight, we made time for us!  Now, Brownie and I have tried a lot of sushi in the Albany/Corvallis area and our favorite is Aomatsu in Corvallis.  Their fish is so fresh and their rolls are creative and beautiful.

Aside from sushi, this restaurant also has table-top Korean BBQ grills.  This was what Brownie was dying to try tonight.  We ordered some sushi too, of course.  It was amazing as always! ;-)

We ordered the Korean BBQ 'Combo A' which included Pork Belly, Beef Chadol-Baegi, Beef Bulgogi and Soy Bean Paste Stew.  Above you can see the plate of raw meet and veggies to grill.  We were also brought several condiments and dipping sauces that circled the grill and filled the table.  It was gorgeous!

Now, we had never done this before, so we carefully watched those around us who looked like they knew what they were doing while our meat was grilling.  We used our empty bowls to fill them with rice and mixed in the meats and veggies when they were done cooking and started experimenting with different condiments and sauces, making a new little mini-bento bowl each time.  It was so much fun!

Word to the wise:  this is a LOT of food!  If we went back, I would do either the Korean BBQ or the sushi, but not both!  It was just too much.

If you're looking for something new to try and haven't visited Aomatsu, you're definitely missing out on a fun experience!  Go try it!  And if you've never tried their sushi .... go right now.  Tonight.  You won't regret it!
