Sunomono with crab - Izakaya Yuzuki
Vinegar dressed cucumber salad with crab meat, seaweed and flowers. Tasting menu
Izakaya Yuzuki, San Francisco CA

Wow, this was the fanciest cucumber salad (sunomono) I’ve ever had! The baby cucumbers were intricately sliced, but not all the way through so they remained intact while still being able to see the expert knife-work. The fresh crab was delicious and the dressing had the perfect balance of tart and sweet. Noms!
