Tuesday's at Ebisu - San Francisco's best kept secret

I'm slightly embarrassed, yet proud to admit that the following sequence of photos was my first meal back in San Francisco from Argentina (and it was my lunch)!  Ebisu is the best Japanese restaurant in San Francisco by a long shot.  My family has been eating there for 15 years.  Every Christmas, in fact, my dad gives each family member a gift card to the restaurant and we take turns treating the whole family to dinner for the following two weeks.  The sushi is great, the sashimi salad is the best deal in town, there really isn't a way to go wrong at Ebisu. 

While on my 7 million hour journey from BA to SF, I began to assess the level of "ganas" I had for each of my restaurant favs in the Bay Area so that upon arriving, I had a solid plan of attack.  This time, I had the overwhelming desire for sushi.  I happened to arrive on a Tuesday and Ebisu happens to offer a chef's special lunch for $30 dollars a person where the top chef just makes plate after plate of whatever he wants (tuesday's only).  My mom and I ordered a sashimi salad and a sushi roll and then split the special.  Besides those two things the rest was the special that was so profuse in it's cantidad that I almost wanted it to stop coming.  For $50 we had the best meal ever and Tuesday's are not to be missed at Ebisu.  Welcome home!
