Your Mom’s Cocktails

Your Mom's Cocktails

We Be Sushi is awesome. Their sushi is reasonably priced and super tasty. Sometimes your server will even give you a personality reading with your food. Not in a rude way, in an . . . intuitive way.

The thing that always boggled me about this place is the sign out front. We Be serves beer, sake, that kind of thing, but I haven’t seen any liquid actually being mixed. And nothing in a martini glass. The plain looking sign on top suggests that the sushi is made the way that somebody’s mom made. The sign below is more specific. It’s also specifically awesome.

So, what’s the deal with the sign? It’s been a sushi restaurant for over 20 years, did they ever have a full bar? According to a server who’s worked there for a while the cocktail sign is actually original, even though they never had cocktails. At some point the sign was made special for the owner. She pointed him out behind the counter, expertly rolling sushi, and said that the mother’s face is actually his own.

At that point I kind of figured I had gotten enough of the story. Better to leave the rest to conjecture. The fact that it fits that well and is also totally out of place is part of what I love about it.

    This place is seriously terrible sushi. If you actually enjoy We Be, then you probably don’t know what good sushi tastes like. There is zero good sushi in the mission. Yo yo? Awful. Tokyo Go-Go? Ditto. Blowfish? Por los gringos. Sorry, Mission, but I always have to leave you to get quality fish. Sushi Zone and Kiji are the only decent spots nearby.

    I love We Be Sushi, it’s simple, fresh, down home Japanese food. Sushi included. And the name has a Caribbean ring to it.
