It’s no big secret that I love Sushi, and pretty much anything that falls under the category of food. When I got wind that BaRa Sushi House in SE Portland was looking for some product photograpy, I volunteered my photographic services. In exchange for the work I got to taste some of the best sushi this side of Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. Being on a freelancer’s budget, I usually have to rely on mediocre conveyer belt joints to get my fix of Hamachi, Tako, Salmon and Toro. BaRa uses real wasabi, which is a welcome change from the green horseradish most cheaper establishments provide. Their rice is a premium short-grain, noticeably better than average. Nyno, the proprietor of the establishment, ships in rare and seasonal fish from around the globe. As a result, the menu is constantly changing and evolving, reflecting the freshest flavors available at any given time. It goes without saying that I’m counting down the days to my next visit. BaRa is melt in your mouth good.
