About once a year I travel to Tokyo, where I eat at tasty sushi restaurants.
Sushi Iwa is located in the exclusive shopping district Ginza in Tokyo it’s a restaurant that I have visited in 2014. It is a restaurant offering sushi of very high quality. I highly recommend the restaurant if you are staying in Tokyo.
Monday, I had lunch at London’s best Japanese sushi restaurant named Yashin Sushi & Bar located on High St. Kensington. Their sushi chefs are in a class of their own they master the Japanese techniques at their fingertips and they have many years of experience.
I was served a miso soup, a salad and the chef’s selection of sushi that day.
The food was really nice. The rice was perfect, the fish melted in the mouth and the various toppings added an extra dimension to the nigiri pieces.
The roll containing the Yellowtail fish tasted fantastic, it was crispy and there was a good balance of the various ingredients. It is not the last time I eat there. Below you will find a few pictures.
