Bushi Tei

In an effort to be healthier and hopefully lose some weight in the process, I have decided to reduce my red meat intake, cut down on starches as much as possible, consume more fish and hold off on the sweets.  Boyfriend and I went to Bushi Tei in SF Japantown because we wanted to use our restaurant.com coupon and we were greatly surprised at how well everything was executed.

We started out with a tuna tartar over guacamole appetizer.  Everything complemented each other well and the lime in the guacamole brought out some great flavors.

For my main dish, I went with the seared ahi tuna over rock shrimp risotto and red curry sauce.  I was concerned about the red curry sauce at first but it was just enough to give a hint of it in each bite and was so yummy!

Boyfriend has a special love affair with beef and although he ordered red meat for dinner, it was grass fed beef so he claims it’s okay.  The meat was excellent and cooked to a perfect medium rare and served with mushrooms.

We did not order any sweets but they brought our these little almond cakes and chocolate truffles.  It doesn’t count if we didn’t order it on our own, does it?!?

    This place once had a Michelin star in 2007. While it may not have one anymore, the head chef is still the same and the food is still pretty darn good. It seems to me like ahi tartar is often paired with guacamole. This particular example had some excellent flavor with the lime juice in the guacamole making it taste really refreshing. Girlfriend’s tuna was good, but my steak was really good. It was served on top of a potato thing that I didn’t like at first, but by the end of the dish I wish I had more of it (mostly since I had a few more pieces of steak to go). There were some other items on the menu that sounded really good, so maybe another trip? It was a great deal after using the Restaurant.com coupon.
