Dream Store

Boyfriend and I went to Yume-ya (literally translated – dream store) for dinner.  We are in the search for a good sushi place in our new city.  Our requirements are sushi rolls that taste good but don’t break the bank.  We tried Sakura Sushi in downtown Sunnyvale but it was nothing worth posting about.  We also tried Tsunami Sushi in Mountain View with Boyfriend’s parents while they were in town.  Tsunami was better but we wanted to keep searching.

Yume-ya is an izakaya but is also known for their sushi.  We started out with the tofu salad and homemade gyoza.  We chose the karashi mayonnaise dressing for the salad.  It was nice to have a choice!  The homemade gyoza was very flavorful and I would definitely order them again.

We ordered a few rolls (our usual are the tempura/crunchy roll, negi hama,  and spicy yellowtail)  We also went with salmon nigiri for Boyfriend and hamachi nigiri for me! : )  The slices of fish were very fresh and generous!  I was a fan.

I would like to go back again and try other items on the menu.  I’m curious about the Japanese style summer rolls they have.  We’ll have to go back when the weather is milder though.  The place didn’t feel particularly air-conditioned in this record-breaking heat we’ve been having and the water service wasn’t the greatest.

    Those gyozas look really, really good and if you say they are good, they must be.
    I’d like to try this place the next time I’m in the area.

    Try Yuki Sushi it’s sort of near Santana Row. It’s simple, quality sushi in a little hole in the wall kind of place. Just get there early or there may be a line out the door.

    The fish was nice and fresh and the pieces they gave for the nigiri were awesome. The gyoza were very tasty. I’m sure most restaurants get them pre-made. You could definitely tell these were different. Thanks to the record breaking heat, it was a bit stifling inside the restaurant and if we hadn’t ordered hot tea, we would have been extremely thirsty since they only refilled our water glasses right as we were ready to leave. I would definitely like to try this place again when the temperatures aren’t in the upper 90s.
