1Must Eat !
Rockfish with mascarpone cheese
This sushi is their signature dish! On top of the carefully chosen rockfish, there is mascarpone cheese. As this mascarpone cheese is blow torched for a second, it has a smoky but fresh flavor. If you come to Sushi Mizuki, we recommend that you try this as you can enjoy the taste and story behind it told by the chefs!
2Must Eat !
This sea urchin was taken in Hokkaido, in northern Japan. The sea urchin is very fresh and sweet, and will melt in your mouth and go well with rice. Even if you don’t like or have never tried sea urchin, you may end up loving this taste and it may make you a big fan of sea urchin! Seaweed cut in the shape of “Shippo” which is the symbol of the seven treasures, an auspicious Buddhist concept. It is served on a plate made by Masao Iwasaki, a famous Japanese potter.
3Let's Try !
Mackerel Sushi called “Fukin Maki”
Regular mackerel sushi eaten mainly in Kansai area is usually very hard since rice and mackerel are put into the box to make the shape. However, this mackerel sushi is very soft as it is wrapped gently by a cotton cloth. Inside of this mackerel sushi, there is red caviar and Japanese basil which makes this sushi even richer and fresher.
4Let's Try !
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 the vinegared rice.
How to Order & EatIf you visit during lunch time, you can choose from two course menus (Wakakusa for ￥6,000 or Yamabuki for ￥9,000). All the sushi chefs are very skilled and speak English, so please feel free to ask any questions regarding the history of sushi ingredients and so on.
