Exclusive Japanese sushi restaurants in Tokyo differ from other restaurants. In Europe many people use Michelin guide as a yardstick which is not the case in Japan.

At what temperature should you eat sushi?

Sushi is a very unique dish that should be eaten at a certain temperature.

There are many people who buy take-away sushi at the moment. There are some things to do if you have decided to eat sushi one night.

Once you have picked up or your sushi has been delivered, you should store the food in your fridge. You must keep the food there until 15 minutes before you are going to eat. Sushi should and tastes best at room temperature.

What you do 15 minutes before eating is that you take the food out of the fridge. You take the lid off and place the food on the kitchen tables (in the shade) and leave it for 15 minutes.

In meantime you can set the table.

On my Sushi course for beginners (max. 9 participants) you will learn step by step how to make tasty sushi which is the perfect summer food with a glass of bubbles.

Can all types of sushi mats be used to make sushi?

Unfortunately not.

The selection of sushi mats is large in Denmark. There are many different types ranging from silicone mats to Japanese sushi mats and not all of them are suitable for sushi.

Kitchen utensils made of silicone are popular and the selection is getting bigger and bigger. Within the last few years, more and more kitchenware shops have started selling sushi mats made of silicone.

Occasionally, I meet attendances who show up on my sushi class with a silicone mat under the arm for which they have paid DKK 250-300. Unfortunately, I will have to disappoint them every time.
Silicone mats are definitely unsuitable for sushi even though they are easy to clean. Silicone is a very smooth material it is very difficult to make nice sushi rolls. In addition, they do not have the same flexibility as sushi mats made of wood. It also makes it difficult to make nice and firm rolls.

At the Sushi course for beginners I tell you more about the type of sushi-eating Japanese sushi chefs. It is a sushi mat that I also sell in my web shop.

Sushi is a nice eating especially in the summer.
It is healthy and nutritious and it’s not very heavy in your stomach. In the summer, you should pay extra attention to how to transport sushi home. Sushi should not stay very long in a warm paper bag before the temperature raise and shelf life will be shorter.

The vegetables are best suited for sushi must have texture and taste.
I’d rather not favor certain vegetables for the reason that there are local specialties that make that one vegetable is preferred over another.

Where does the Japanese eat in Tokyo?

TokyoTokyo is the city of the world with the most Michelin star restaurants and that is not by accident. The Japanese are very critical when comes to where to dine and they place very high stanards when it comes to quality of the food and the price.

Basically, it is always best to eat at restaurants where the locals come and it is also true when it comes to Japan. Typically the quality of the restaurants where the Japanese eat in Tokyo is higher than where tourists eat.

In some of the very touristy areas in Tokyo and Kyoto the price is higher than elsewhere while the quality of the food is slightly lower.

You must keep that in mind if you are going to visit Japan.

What do a Japanese meal consist of?

Goyza1A Japanese meal is very different from what we know in Europe.

In Japan they eat many small meals for dinner 6-10 dishes consisting of fish, seafood, rice, various vegetables and meat. All dishes are very light in texture and enjoyed for several hours.
In the course of an evening the Japanese eats a very balanced dinner.

The Japanese are as just as busy as any other, and they work several days and hours per week.
Like so many others, they have no time during the week to spend hours in the kitchen and cook. Therefore, there is a wide range of take-away stalls, stands and Noodle bar of very high quality at a reasonable price, which is used frequently several times a week.

In this way the Japanese manage to eat healthy and have a varied diet.

Fukuoka: Review of Ide chanpon

Fukuoka is an area of Japan located 1½ hour flight from Tokyo. It is a green area in Japan which also offers rolling hills, fields and forest.

Fukuoka is known throughout Japan for having the best noddle restaurants.

In June 2015 I visited the restaurant Ide Chanpon which is known to be the best restaurant. They only have noodle soups on the menu which made and served in different versions and flavors.
I was served a big bowl of tasty noodle soup called Champon, the soup contained fish, seafood, vegetables and noodles.
It tasted absolutely fantastic. The gentle and round fund added fresh vegetables, fish, seafood and noodles tasted rude well. It is a right and a restaurant which I highly recommend.
