Sam’s in San Mateo is one of my favorite sushi restaurants around. However, what I didn’t know is that they had really delicious desserts. A lot of sushi places aren’t particularly known for their desserts, maybe you can get a couple scoops of green tea ice cream or some fruit slices at best. However, Sam’s Edomata has a great pastry chef, a niece of Sam, who puts together the great desserts, many which rotate, so definitely ask what current desserts they have.
The sushi is really good, and since it is spring, kohada is on the specials menu board. Last week, they also had a really good bonito which they paired some great yuzu flavoring.
