2018—Sho-Chiku-Bai

It’s what’s for dinner in Auburn.  I was drawn to the neon sign but thought the Japanese lantern with the words Sho-Chiku-Bai was compelling, too.  I enjoy eating sushi but don’t know much about its nuances.  A little googling revealed that  Sho Chiku Bai is a way to rank the three levels of choices in Sushi, with Sho (meaning pine in Japanese) being the best, most extravagant and most expensive, Chiku (bamboo) next, and Bai (Plum) being lowest rank with the smallest servings but still excellent. I didn’t sample their sushi but I’ll have to go back there and try their offerings.
