Nare Sushi - and the uni and hotate - was a beaut, and it’s the subject of my next review, coming Monday. Unless the Leafs lose tomorrow night, in which case I’ll see you in October. #thesushilegend | | #ripavicii - a true pioneer.
Sawada Kazumi is a maestro, Seoul is a gem and Kioku was the perfect button to our trip to the Republic of Korea. Cheers for reading and sharing. Fun fact: writing can be enjoyable. Sometimes.
PSA: toronto sports playoffs begin tonight, so it’s my annual tradition of drowning my nerves in sushi. And cool - Boston literally scored as I type. Thank you for your support during this difficult time. PS: above is O Toro for tuna belly Thursday #tbt
Personal favourite from my Omakase at Kioku (review linked in my bio). Sawada-San, a vet of the sushi world, has really owned the sushi game in Seoul and it’s easy to see why: his waza (technique) is 🍌. Cheers as always for reading.
Long (and I mean longgggg) overdue - my thoughts on Kioku, one of my favourite restaurants (not just sushiya) in Seoul. Not sure if it was the recent Olympics or the worldwide phenomenon Okja (#okjaaaaaa) that jogged my memory, but link’s in the bio. Cheers as always for reading.
Peek a boo - Chawanmushi (egg custard) with Uni up top, and snow crab underneath. Part of the Kaiseki/Omakase hybrid at Nare Sushi in Midtown NYC. I enjoyed this one - review to come on The Sushi Legend (.com). You know the drill.
Why is Staten Island sushi taking over the world? My column:
The Uni emoji campaign starts tonight. Grassroots. Toshio Suzuki (ex of Sushi Zen in midtown) eschews the nori-wrapped style on his - review to come at The Sushi Legend (.com).

“Uni in three acts” - listed for auction at Sotheby’s | review at The Sushi Legend dot com
Sixty Second Sushi on ‘Sushi by Bou’ in Midtown Manhattan. Trying the widescreen version, so I’m basically Spielberg. Written review at (link in bio). Appreciate the feedback. #sushilife
Hamachi from Sushi by Bou’s subterranean location in Times Square. Check out my review at (link in bio). This beauty has a shadow so by my calculations that means summer is 4 weeks away (that’s how it works right?)
