Portraits of Sushi Tokami

イカ Ika Squid I consider myself extremely fortunate for many reasons. One of them is the number of times I have been able to dine omakase. In Japan alone, I believe Sushi Tokami would be my fourth or fifth experience. If you are interested in fine dining, …

Sanpo, Rosebery

Rosebery isn’t exactly somewhere I would send people in search of a culinary adventure. Which is why our recent trip to Sanpo in that very suburb is a testament to how effective Facebook marketing is. Sanpo ads of their delicious looking uni gunkan maki were populating …

Sushi Sho Saito

I don’t usually do restaurant reviews for travel anymore but I made an exception for this. I’ve been eating Japanese food for most of my life. I still remember my humble beginnings as a child being offered a sampling of salmon nigiri at a generic …

Sushi Tengoku
