M & I discovered Little Mad Fish in Vacaville, CA back in 2008 or 2009. Either way the Bento Boxes were the best deal at under $10 and their selection of sushi wasn’t as large as it is today. Now Little Mad Fish has several locations around the Bay Area. They had a location at Pier 39 Fisherman’s Warf in San Francisco but last time I stopped by it was close down.
Little Mad Fish has some pretty rockin lunch specials that go on pretty much all week. They differ a bit with the days and times, but most discounts are static. We usually get Edemame’s since they’re only $2 and they’re salted to perfection here.
I also usually start off with the Lobster Mango Rolls. They’re pretty close to the sushi I fell in love with while I was living in Orlando (at Kona Cafe inside of the Polynesian Resort) but it’s also very different. These rolls are pretty much California Rolls topped with crab pieces and scallops topped with mango sauce and baked.
And on this day I decided on the Gyoza Ramen. I’m not a fan of the Udon here simply because I don’t like the broth they use so I stick to the Ramen. A little secret? I’m a sucker for Gyoza!
M got his usual bento box which I didn’t snap a picture of (I have a million pictures of it but I can’t find one, wth right?). Their salad dressing is amazing, seriously addicting! The Bento Boxes also come with a miso soup.
Little Mad Fish offers many other dishes besides Ramen and Bento Boxes and with every passing year they seem to add more and more to the menu.
If you’re ever in the Bay Area and craving comforting Japanese food, I absolutely suggest Little Mad Fish!
