Mar 19,2018 YOUR REWARD IN JAPAN, NIGIRI-ZUSHI
EDO-STYLE SUSHI, WHERE THE SUSHI CHEF’S ART SHINES
Nigiri-zushi is a Japanese cuisine that is loved everywhere in the world, but there are many methods and styles, depending on the area. Where Kansai-style sushi uses a sweeter vinegared rice that is shaped into a firmer ball, Edomae (Tokyo-style) sushi uses a less sweet and tarter rice that is more loosely packed with air. The ingredients put on top of the rice are also different. Kansai sushi places importance on the freshness of the ingredients while Edomae sushi gives seafood that were caught in Tokyo Bay a twist. For example, white fish seasoned with konbu or soy sauce marinated tuna.
SUSHISAY, established in 1889, is where you can taste authentic Edomae nigiri-zushi in Kyoto. 30 to 40 different seafood from Tsujiki Seafood Market in Tokyo are lined-up and the sushi chefs will make the sushi right in front of you. If you are interested in a specific sushi, simply ask for it. If you do not know where to start from, the Omakase (Chef’s selection)” (photo, ¥3,456) with 11 pieces of sushi including otoro (fatty tuna), chutoro (medium-fatty tuna), uni (sea urchin), red miso soup, chawanmushi (egg custard) and warabi mochi (braken starch mochi) is recommended.
