from Sushi House Hayakawa on Buford Highway.

Listed on the menu as Fresh Sea Urchin, marinated Salmon eggs, Sweet Shrimps and lightly fried Shrimp head over sushi rice, Hokkai Don is a combination of the best of the best offered at Japanese restaurants. Sweet+ smooth (fresh shrimp or amaebi), salty+ juicy (salmon eggs or ikura), oceany+creamy (sea urchin or uni), umami+crunch (fried shirmp heads) – placed over steamed, sticky, sushi rice.

What a delight!

Dreaming about the next time I can trek down Buford Highway and tuck into a bowl of Hokkai Don.

  1. Looks delish! Can’t wait to try sea urchin, but I want to go with you, so I know I’m getting the best tasting experience. Research where in NY we can go.

  2. It does look really good!!! My mind has opened a lot in the recent past and now I eat more than just chicken fingers and french fries!! haha…but I don’t think I’m up to sea urchin quite yet….maybe next year. Should we go to this restaurant when we come down?

    • I know – I was shocked when you were in the oyster phase. ATL can’t really compete with NYC in the raw fish world, so we’ll check out some other cool places for sure! But when I’m in NY, there are a few places I want to go to where you can try uni for the first time (I will hold your hand).

  3. uh..no thanks! looks like it would be too slimy on my tongue! You are far more adventurous than I. Ken would eat that with you.
