What is quality sushi?

HosomakiIt is a question that I often discuss with my attendants.
It is as such not a clear answer because it is based in fact on an individual assessment.

For some discount sushi to gourmet food and for others a dinner at a Michelin sushi restaurant is a gastronomic experience.

When I have to assess whether any kind of sushi I will look at the ingredients that have been used are of high quality and they are fresh. Since you do not cook sushi the quality of ingredients is very important.
Since I am Japanese-trained sushi chef and sake sommelier I look at the techniques used to make sushi because I think it is very important to give the guest a gastronomic experience.

In what way does a Japanese sushi restaurant differ?

GinzaThe most exclusive sushi restaurants in Tokyo are very different compared to European sushi restaurants.

The size of a Japanese sushi restaurant can vary widely but often the restaurants are very small. There are no more than 6 – 15 seats in the restaurant and there are several reasons for that.

In the capital Tokyo living there 20 million. Since there are many people in a very small geographic area many Japanese families live in small apartment or houses and they are expensive.
Besides the many people there must also be room for many restaurants and shops.

On most streets have at least one restaurant so in addition to fierce competition between the restaurants.

Japanese do not compromise on the quality of food and service. Tokyo is the city of the world with the highest quality and service. They do everything they can to provide the best possible service.
The fierce competition for food combined with a high restaurant service ensures their survival. In Japan there are many restaurants that live by the motto, rather small but good.
