AMAZING
1st CHUTORO
鮨 百万石, Taito City
Chu-toro is just godly stuff 😋
2nd UNI NIGIRI
Restaurant Yugo, Vancouver
Local uni from BC waters. Just in season and so creamy 😋🤤
3rd NIGIRI
Restaurant Yugo, Vancouver
Premium nigiri platter - exquisite selection, beautifully presented and tasting so fresh 😋
4th ANAGO NIGIRI
鮨 百万石, Taito City
A favourite of the chef's - the lesser popularised sea eel is softer with a milder flavour than the better known freshwater unagi. For me, this is the superior eel!
5th AKAGAI NIGIRI
鮨 百万石, Taito City
Never had this type of clam before (arc shell) but it was a revelation! A superb nigiri!
6th HAMAGURI NIGIRI
鮨 百万石, Taito City
Delicious Hamaguri (Common Orient Clam) completing a trio of clams in the chef's dinner selection
7th AJI NIGIRI
鮨 百万石, Taito City
Horse mackerel is just so good 😋
8th MAGURO NIGIRI
鮨 百万石, Taito City
Bluefin (Hon-maguro), marinaded lightly in soy sauce for about 10 minutes before being served
9th HOKKIGAI NIGIRI
鮨 百万石, Taito City
It doesn't have the aesthetic of other cuts, but the firm initial bite of this clam nigiri turns tender in the mouth a chew or two afterwards.
10th NIGIRI OMAKASE
Tetsu Sushi Bar, Vancouver
7pcs set comprising: Bluefin kamatoro, Hokkaido uni, King salmon, Pike mackerel, Amberjack, Stripejack, & Marbled sole Amazing choices from the chef!
11th MADAI NIGIRI
鮨 百万石, Taito City
Little red bream, served simply with a brush of soy sauce
12th AKAGAI NIGIRI
Sushi Kaido, Chatswood
Clam nigiri always a revelation when fresh. Superb texture and so satisfying to eat 😋
13th SALMON TARTARE GUNKAN MAKI
Sushi Kaido, Chatswood
You get a nice creamy mouthful of salmon with these gunkan rolls. Best to down it in one to avoid it collapsing. Open wide! 😄😋
15th ANAGO NIGIRI
Sushi Kaido, Chatswood
Soft and a little bit sweet. And wonderfully oversized for the rice but I'm not complaining! 😋
16th IKA NIGIRI
鮨 百万石, Taito City
Baby cuttlefish nigiri, served with a brush of soy sauce and tiny drop of lime
17th SQUID NIGIRI
鮨 百万石, Taito City
Technically also Ika nigiri, but this is from a normal sized squid 🦑
18th BONITO NIGIRI
鮨 百万石, Taito City
A little ginger, grated finely along with green onion, to elevate this skipjack tuna nigiri
REALLY GOOD
20th SNOW CRAB SUSHI
Chisou Japanese Izakaya, London
Snow crab told topped with salmon tartar and truffle mayo - really great blend of flavours and textures
21st SEARED BUTTERFISH
Hot Stone Steak and Sushi Bar, London
Very nice seared butterfish sashimi with a spicy ponzu sauce
22nd TUNA OSHIZUSHI
Sushi Atelier, London
Oshizushi of pressed BBQ tuna with parmesan. Interesting fusion dish
23rd NIGIRI SUSHI
Samurai Sushi Whistler, Whistler
I had low expectations that were surpassed for this a la carte order of unagi and toro nigiri. The former had a nice amount of sauce and none of the regrettable after taste of bad eel. The toro was better than I thought it would be. Nothing prestigious, but definitely richer tasting.
24th ASSORTED SUSHI
Suncourt sushi, Taupo
Popular place in Taupo, serving up classic nigiri and maki alongside a few funkier large rolls, Aburi nigiri and gunkan.
25th CHICKEN KATSU URAMAKI
Sushi Kaido, Chatswood
Was alright - nice texture combinations but could have used a spicy mayo on top or something. Not dry, but needed something else to bring it together as you chew.
26th TOBIKO ROLL
Sushi Kaido, Chatswood
Not salty enough for my liking but good size and generous filling. Check your teeth afterwards for bits of roe because they get everywhere! 😬😁
