Owner Min Choe debuted his restaurant in 2016 with the intent to offer an omakase that didn’t break the bank for sushi fans, a stark contrast to typical omakase prices in San Francisco that are often hundreds of dollars. Sushi Hon’s dinner omakase is now priced at $79, though there is also an “exclusive” menu available for $108.
When it opened, Choe told Eater SF he was able to keep the prices so low because he owns the property. “I don’t need to worry about rent, and I own a couple other businesses, so I have a steady income,” he told Eater SF. “My passion overrode, so instead of making more money, I like making great sushi available for Japanese food lovers.” Those other properties include the newly opened Barnzu in the Tenderloin, and sushi bar Tamashisoul in the Marina.
Choe’s lunch omakase features several courses, including nine pieces of nigiri for $55. Separately, Choe has added ramen to the lunch menu, which means his miso foie gras ramen will also make an appearance. Check out the full menu below.
Sushi Hon is open for lunch Monday-Friday from 11:30 a.m.- 2 p.m.
