Sadly, not the same. Things eventually change. New owners, new menu, new experience,... My favorite roll that was uniquely made and I had eaten since I was 15 years old at "this" restaurant - beef asparagus maki - gone. I do not write reviews if have nothing I want people to try... however felt I needed to update my original review from 2010.
Highly recommend and love that menu varies on what is available. Fresh and unique food. Only weird thing - pay first, etc. - so what do you do about dessert? or how to put tips on credit card - which is based on service... which by the way was excellent!
Like many have said... service is not their strong suit. However, if you want really fresh awesome priced seafood this is the place! Below is step by step how to BBQ oysters...
Purchase Oysters from Lucky Seafood:
- Go to the register and tell them you want a box of medium oysters (4 dozen or 48 oysters) only cost $35...(about 73 cents each... a real deal! at my local market they were 1.20 each)
- Remember they only take CASH!
- Give receipt to fish mongers and get your oysters
On way home or next door purchase a bag of Ice and cooler or cooler bag to keep oysters fresh after you clean them
Take the oysters home and clean them (It's recommended that you wear gloves, so you don't cut yourself). Wash them in cold water and scrub off the dirt, etc. If any are open throw them away. In my box of 48, 3 were open...
Put the cleaned oysters on ice in your cooler until you cook them
- Start up your BBQ and get it nice and hot.
- Put oysters facing up on the BBQ (more flat part facing up). This way, when they open, the juice will not drain down into the grill. Again if any oysters are already open before you put them on the BBQ throw them away.
- Cook until they pop open a little (about 8-12 minutes for medium sized oysters and depending on temperature of grill). Often they will pop open and make a noise or shoot a little juice out - watch out! You will also see steam coming out and the juices bubbling.
- After they pop open a little, depending on the size of the oyster and thickness of the shell they might not pop open all the way. Then you may have to carefully, should not be hard to do... pry them open with a regular, not sharp silverware knife, all the way to eat them. If the oyster does not easily pry open, leave it on the grill longer.
- If you want them still raw, when they pop open, take them off and set aside for a minute, then eat. If you want them more cooked, then wait until the steam burns off and/or the shell opens even more.
- Peel the top shell off the oyster, with a regular table silverware knife, then eat as is or add some lime/lemon juice and Tapatio Hot Sauce or BBQ sauce.
- Enjoy, have fun and share with your friends!... make sure to invite me too!
How many oysters to buy:
One box of 48 medium oysters goes a long way... they are rich, full of flavor, and really big... can easily feed a party of 5. If you are also barbecuing other things like chicken, steak, corn, etc., one box of 48 can be enough for a huge group of people... people can only eat so many... and not everyone likes oysters (more for us!)... regardless they will be the hit of the BBQ.
Oh... am I supposed to also say... consuming raw or uncooked seafood or shellfish may increase your risk of food borne illness, especially if you have a medical condition.
Josh is an amazing professional in every way. I highly recommend having Josh speak at your event, organize your space or advise you how to integrate new technologies into your life and business. His experiences and knowledge are solid. As an ambassador for several online tools and sites including Evernote, you know Josh knows what he is talking about. I have and continue to use Josh as a resource and often refer people to invite him to speak at their events or groups on using new technologies to be organized and boost productivity.
One of the largest yarn stores in East Bay and definitely this side of the tunnel. Lots of space and products. The class list is impressive. The staff and owner were extremely friendly and helpful in offering me advice and recommendations... they answered all my questions.
If you are at the Court House across the street or at the DMV around the corner and tired of waiting for things to happen... I highly recommend you check this store out!
Bonus: The parking lot is huge and the store is really relaxing when you have tea and sit on the sofa.
The quality of fish here is excellent. They have all kinds of specials and varieties of sushi and rolls. It is worth driving to this place on the edge of the Walnut Creek / Pleasant Hill border to check it out.
Hiro, a Japanese trained master Sushi Chef, has been here for quite some time now and he is top notch. Have him make you a platter of sushi and you will not be disappointed. It can cost a little more, however it's amazing.
This place gets busy often, however if you have patience, you will find the servings and staff do as well. They never seem to get overwhelmed. Because they place is busy, lots of families eat here with there kids.
The manager and owners do a really good job and are super friendly.
Ask for the Noodle / Soup menu when having dinner in the main restaurant. The soups will blow your mind and are a lot less expensive. The Sushi is good as well, however I typically have soups and grilled food here.
The food and service is top notch. It is hard to find a restaurant that uses art, design, and technology in the way Lave Pit has. Their menus are displayed on 3 Flat Screen TV's behind the counter.
The Orinda location is awesome, but hidden. They also now have a Lafayette location right next to Trader Joes.
