I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

Cikarashi is the underdog in the new poke movement sweeping the city. The bowls are a bit more refined with a chef’s eye rather than just a mess of raw fish and Asian toppings. The composed raw fish bowls are quite interesting, but I found myself craving their salmon collar Salt, meat and fat cling to the collar bone, while a bright acidic ponzu sauce cuts the richness and soaks into the warm rice, cucumbers, and soy-kissed daikon radishes/ Price: $15.49
