What is Japanese chef’s view of fish?


Japanese chefs have a different view of fish.

In Japan, Japanese chefs use only raw materials that are in season.

A Japanese fish named Katsuo which is in the family with the tuna is in season 2 times a year. In spring it swims from southern Japan to the north. In spring, it is low in fat whereas in autumn when caught in northern Japan it is fat. On its swim from south to north it has eaten many small fish.

As a restaurant guest you can only find it on the menu card for a few months a year.
This is something that restaurant guests enjoy since the menu of Japanese restaurants in Tokyo changes very often.

Are Japanese sushi restaurant in Tokyo different?

TokyoThere are many different types of restaurants in Tokyo.

The most exclusive sushi restaurants in Tokyo are very different compared to European restaurants.
The size of a Japanese sushi restaurant can be very small.  There are many Japanese restaurants that has only room for 6 – 15 people. There are several reasons for that.

Tokyo has 20 million citizens living in a very small geographic area. Besides the many people living in Tokyo there are also many restaurants, street food and shops. There is almost a restaurant on every street in Tokyo so the competition in the neighborhood is fierce.

There is also another factor which is that the Japanese do not compromise on the quality of food and service. Tokyo is the city of the world with the highest quality of food.

Every restaurant try their best to provide the best food and service. The competition between the restaurants are very fierce. In order for a restaurant to succeed the has to be good.

Hollywood movie city, celebrities and sushi

I am in Los Angeles at the moment.

On Monday, I was greeted by my Japanese sushi chef Toshi and he offered some food. It is still the best nigiri I have received to date.

When I met him in 2006, I only knew that he was Executive Sushi Chef with 32 years of experience.

He is a highly acclaimed sushi chef in LA. He has all the major movie companies in Hollywood as clients. Hollywood stars and celebrities are also some of the richest in the world. He was very happy that last night. He is pleased that things are going well in Denmark.

A little has happened since 2012 when I last visited the restaurant. Toshi is a Dodgers fan (8 best baseball teams). He makes sushi for them at certain times and their pictures are hanging in the sushi bar.

Tonight I’m going to be at the sushi bar where I’m going to give a badass sushi chef a hand.
