Other Mama is the brain child of Chef Dan Krohmer. He started with slicing fish in a Japanese restaurant in Sacramento and since has spent years studying sushi in Japan. Krohmer has also worked under the sushi master Masaharu Morimoto himself. The restaurant’s highlight is their raw bar where you could enjoy an array of sushi, sashimi, and ceviche. They have a simple menu but everything you eat will certainly be filled with umami and will surely leave you satiated. They also have wines and brews compiled by award-winning mixologists.
