Bay Area Eats: Tanto

screen-shot-2017-02-05-at-12-10-18-pm

My dad is going to be so psyched when he sees this post. Though they never say this exactly, both of my parents are huge advocates of “treating yourself.” Our weekly phone calls typically consist of them ending it by telling me to eat a really good dinner to which my dad will interject and be like, “go to Tanto! They have fresh fish!” And he’s not wrong. Here’s a photo I took of their sashimi the last time I went. Often times when you go to other sushi restaurants, they really skimp on the way they cut their pieces, but Tanto doesn’t do that. Every piece is fairly large, buttery, and perfect. To clarify though, Tanto (in Sunnyvale) isn’t a sushi restaurant. They’re a Japanese tapas place, which is even more exiting because their menu is enormous. There are so many options and even though I’ve been there a few times, I’m no where close to having tried everything on their menu. They’re a highly rated restaurant with a very good reputation in the South Bay. The bottom photo is the Hotate Butter Uni Nose – a bowl of rice topped with scallops, uni, and salmon roe. If you’re going with a group of four people, it’s best to get about 7-8 dishes that you can all share.
