Like the other Genki's in Hawaii, this one is inside a mall. And it's exactly where it belongs. It isn't sushi for the hard core. Like its kin Gatten and Kura, this is sushi for the gum-snapping set, but one that doesn't skimp of tradition and expertise. The best bite is the salmon skin nigiri; an item that most sushi-philes wouldn't consider true sushi. The thin sample of fish epidermis is fried with just a millimeter of the meat still clinging on. Then the crispy fleck is brushed with touch of Thai sweet chili sauce and put atop a ball of rice. It's excellent as is this sushi bar.
