Our retired dentist, who we adore, treated us to lunch at Sushi Ota in Pacific Beach this summer.
We sat down at the sushi bar for omakase, which is a Japanese phrase that means "I'll leave it up to you" from the Japanese 'to entrust' (makaseru).
And we were in excellent hands.
The chef explained each dish, what to eat first and in one case to leave the bones as they would be deep-fried and served in another course!
Try it some time.
Omakase = fabulous experience.
