Highlight #245: One closed, but another still going strong - Restaurant: Blue Fin Sushi

We drove up to Suwanee for Yasu, only to find the restaurant papered up. Disappointed, we turned back towards Duluth and dropped by Blue Fin Sushi. Not only was it still there, the food we got were awesome.

First, we received some glorious sashimi. The Uni was particularly buttery. The clams and scallops were also refreshingly cool and sweet.

The garlic baked clams were as big as my palm and very plump.

But best of all was the enormous tub of champon. When I say enormous, I mean the size of a family size serving bowl. When it come to the table, my husband and I just had to laugh. Champon differs from regular ramen in that it uses a much thicker and more chewy noodle. The soup is also particularly sticky and dense from long hours of boiling chicken and pork bones. The toppings consisted of a mix of pork and seafood lightly pan fried in lard. Very heavy, but so intensely good. We haven't seen this dish much in Atlanta and were super happy to eat it.

Aah, yes, they have the best champon in Georgia. I go here at least once a week for the champon and the uni. I ate here this past Monday and had a huge bowl of champon and 8 pcs of uni :)
