This popular sushi restaurant at the Village at Squaw Valley offers eclectic combinations of Japanese, Italian and Latin American sushi, sashimi, nigiri and tapas. The food is healthy with an emphasis on clean flavors. Owner Elsa Corrigan shares her passion of the outdoors with both locals and visitors in her food. She's a graduate of the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco and worked at Aqua, Restaurant Lulu and Acquerello in San Francisco, Mustard's in Napa Valley and several popular Tahoe spots before opening Mamasake in 2002.

The Mamasake menu give an interesting take on Asian food by combining hints of Italian and Latin American flavors with a commitment to utilizing local, organic sustainable products. Menu items include the Insane Roll with maguro, hamachi, avocado, cucumber and serrano peppers, oyster shooters, steaks, teriyaki chicken and bento boxes for lunch. Their drink menu includes wine and beer, sake and a happy hour special of a beer and a roll for $5.

The restaurant's ambiance is colorful with a sprinkling of Lake Tahoe thrown in in the form of colored hardwoods and recycled railroad ties. The large windows  offer a view of the infamous Tram Face and KT22 fingers of Squaw Valley.
