Once in a while I venture beyond the confines of absolute bottomfeeding especially when fish and sushi are involved.
So, we went to Tachibana in Visalia. It is a little hard to find because it’s the last place in the back of a small complex. The service was great and the food was excellent. If you go there take someone with you and try the BOAT which is served to a minimum of 2 people 21.95 each. You get a real sampler of a variety of stuff, sashimi, a California roll, tempura and teriyaki and more and dessert is included. You get a lot of food. I had never tried red bean ice cream before and it was great. It isn’t a large place but the dining room seats 50. They don’t have teppanyaki but they have a nice little sushi bar.
The hours are 11:00 to 2:30 and then from 5:00 to 9:00 and they are closed Sundays
