Chef Yamamoto at Shiki (lower Queen Anne) also does amaebi w/ the fried shrimp heads. Delicious.
We were served fried shrimp heads with the fresh shrimp in the Bay Area--or I should say the South Bay (Silicon Valley). We ate our first sushi in Seattle at Toyoda out on Lake City and were surprised that we weren't served the heads. They're my favorite part. Enjoyed some good ones the other night at Kisaku.

He whipped out a live shrimp, promptly named it and had us shake hands/claws and become aquainted with "Mary". Once we were got to know "Mary", he grabbed her off the bar, ripped her tail off with a twist, cleaned out the nasty stuff and slapped the still twiching peeled tail on some rice for us to eat quickly.
After swallowing her sweet twitching tail, Mary's deep fried head arrived for us to pick off the crunchy antenne before chomping on the crispy on the outside, yet creamy on the inside head.
I have two words for America... Meat Crust.

Time to go back to school kids:
I'm probably going to do Sushi 101... anyone else? I'd do 201 but it's on Thanksgiving weekend, and I'll probably have guests over..

On the last visit, I discovered that the sake sampler flights has fallen off the menu. It went off, our waiter explained, because it's a total pain for them to do. but if you ask nicely they'll do it anyway :)
