What we say
Salt Lake City meets Tokyo in this local spin on traditional Japanese sashimi; in the place of raw fish, here you’ll find locally sourced elk. There’s no denying it’s a unique dish and we ordered purely for the novelty factor alone.
The plating is pretty but the overall taste is relatively muted. The thin sliced meat doesn’t offer much in the way of meaty-gamey-flavor, with the marinated onions packing more punch in truth.
