What I loved the most other than the delicate taste of sushi was that the conversation I had with sushi chef over the counter. He told us the history and background of “Edomae-Zushi”, Sushi mainly eaten around Tokyo. It is quite different from the one we have in Kansai area (around Kyoto, Osaka and so on). It was also a great experience of looking at sushi chef making sushi by their hands. You may be satisfied by their hospitability and their delicious Sushi while talking with Sushi chef over th...moree counter.
If you would like enjoy high class but not too formal sushi, we highly recommend that you visit Sushi Mizuki! Each sushi is very beautiful and also tasty. The taste of sushi and the conversation with sushi chef over the counter make you smile. By the passion for the sushi and also for treating their guests, they keep creating new menu.
Rockfish with mascarpone cheese
1Must Eat !
Rockfish with mascarpone cheese
This sushi is their signature dish! On top of the carefully chosen rockfish, there is a mascarpone cheese. As this mascarpone cheese is grilled by charcoal fire for a second, it gives a smoked but also fresh flavor. If you come to Sushi Mizuki, we recommend that you try this as you will enjoy this taste and story behind told by the chef!
Sea urchin
2Must Eat !
Sea urchin
This sea urchin is taken in Hokkaido, a northern island of Japan. It is very fresh and sweet, and will melt in your mouth and mix well with rice. Even if you don’t like or have never tried sea urchin, you may love this taste and it will make you a big fan of sushi sea urchin! Seaweed cut in the shape of “Shippo” which is the symbol of harmony, peace and forever chain is served along with sushi urchin. It would be served in the plate created by Masao Iwasaki who is a famous Japanese potter.
Mackerel Sushi called “Fukin Maki”
3Let's Try !
Mackerel Sushi called “Fukin Maki”
Regular mackerel sushi eaten mainly in Kansai area is usually very hard since rice and Mackerel fish are put into the box to make the shape. However, this Mackerel Sushi is very soft as it is wrapped softly by a cotton cloth. Inside of this Mackerel sushi, there are red caviar and Japanese basil which make this sushi even richer and fresher.
4Let's Try !
Shrimp sushi
What is wonderful about this sushi other than its delicious flavor is that it is cut into small pieces for women. By the consideration of the chef, it is cut so that women don’t need to open their mouths wide. It is interesting to note that soy sauce is applied already before it is served. Shrimp is soft and goes perfectly well with vinegared rice.
