Great, but be open-minded, and forewarned... the Omakase course for 6,000 yen (absolutely make a reservation) has about 30 different courses, of which (on the day I went in early January) had only 11 pieces of what you might consider ‘sushi’ in the traditional sense...(slices of raw fish or raw seafood on rice). The rest of the courses are a delightful variety of slices of marinated raw fish, braised seafood like abalone, various picked vegetables, and some shockingly ‘exotic’ eats.
All of it very good, but the progression will be shocking to some. For example, after your first piece of particularly tasty cod sushi, you get a small bowl of particularly slimy seaweed (VERY very slimy and potentially off-putting if you have never tried it before ), delicately flavored with a citrus sauce. It’s delicious, but I bet many people wouldn’t try a second bite because of the texture.
Or later, you get two wonderful pieces of fatty tuna sushi, and then a small bowl with a pile of something that looks like (I’ll just say it) white brains- or maybe intestines. Raw brains and intestines floating in some soy based sauce.
Of course it’s not brains or intestines, but actually (and I’m not sure it sounds better), the raw reproductive sacks of codfish. It has a creamy texture (some of you are getting sick, I know it). But for those with an open mind, it is a delicacy when prepared correctly, and it’s very, very delicious here.
So by all means try this place- you will get a wonderful overview of not just great sushi, but also very skillfully prepared Japanese cuisine at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.More
