Ebisu is our favorite Japanese Restaurant. It is best to take a seat at the counter where you will get excellent service. Bill Bishop and I always sit at the counter, which brings you closer to the sushi chefs.
Some of our favorites dishes are the Live Scallops with Tempura, Cucumber Salad (Sunomono) and the Chef’s Choice Sashimi Appetizer from their lunch menu. The scallop is removed from its shell and prepared just after it is ordered. The shell holds a light dipping sauce and the tempura that comes with it is delicately prepared moments before it is served. Ebisu is on 9th Avenue at Irving in the Sunset near Golden Gate Park and plenty of parking is available in a metered lot nearby.
