I never had it as a kid. I never had it as a teen. Heck, I don’t think I ever had sushi until my late 20’s. Did I miss out? Well, I can tell you is that I was just a dumb kid. As an adult I got smart. Yeah, I missed out and I love sushi!

Manpuku, #34 of The Great Livermore Restaurant Challenge is the second sushi joint I’ve been to during this adventure. 31 restaurants ago, way back in TGLRN #3, Yamato was the first. I didn’t realize this, but Livermore has about 10 sushi restaurants in town. That means I have 8 more to try. Yay!

Manpuku is a little place located in the Safeway shopping center on First Street at Las Positas Road. Some Yelp reviews call it a hole-in-the-wall. I don’t think so. While it’s small, it’s definitely not dingy. It’s a clean place that’s brightly lit and in a great location just off 580.
