Sushi Mizuki - The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto

- 鮨 水暉 -
Authentic and creative Edomae-zushi with skilled and friendly sushi chefs
Located right next to the Kamo River, Sushi Mizuki is one of the main restaurants in The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto. When you enter this restaurant, friendly staff will welcome you with a smile and wonderful hospitability. You can have a counter seat so that you can enjoy watching the sushi chefs create their new sushi that you cannot taste anywhere else. What is great about this restaurant other than the delicious taste of sushi is that all their chefs speak English (one of them even speaks English, Spanish and French!). They can tell you about the history of sushi, traditions, and customs as they serve you. The rice used in Sushi Mizuki is dedicated to Ise-Jingu Shrine, one of the biggest shrines in Japan. All the sushi served in this restaurant is very delicate and sophisticated, so you can enjoy the taste and atmosphere while talking with sushi chef over the counter.
Rockfish with mascarpone cheese
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!
Sea urchin
Sea urchin
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.
Mackerel Sushi called “Fukin Maki”

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.
Shrimp sushi

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 the vinegared rice.
