Hi Lit,it was really good(better than any sushi shop outside of Japan of course), but the fish quality was not as top as at Tokyo sushi shops. So maybe you should better choose a kaiseki restaurant in Kyoto?

Thank you Lit, I will definitely try Hashiguchi next time! Yes,the concierge of my hotel even refused to call to Araki saying that a Japanese speaker should call for me..

Thanks, Rodzilla! To be honest with you, I didn't find Miyako sushi and Sukiyabashi jiro sushi so different that the latter is considered the best in the world and the other is not even listed in Michelin guide.Opposite, I preferred the rice at Miyako,as the rice at Jiro is really sour... Usually they propose both,chopsticks and a little wet towel if you choose to eat with your fingers, but I noticed that Japanese diners use as much chopsticks as fingers..

Thank you David! I tried Araki, but they don't accept reservations when hotel concierges try to book it...

Kinmedai sushi Calling a restaurant "the best in the world" or awarding it with one, two or three stars is a very Western notion. If you ask any well travelled foodie ( including me ) what is the best sushi... Continue reading

Hi Clementine,thank you ;) I really appreciate your kind words! You are right, the region is very beautiful,but it is one of the most difficult regions to access in France as it is not covered by TGV network.( even the local people are saying that). If you don't drive, you need to either take a plane to Rodez and then drive to Michel Bras, or take a train ( but when I was researching my travel options I didn't find any direct train from Paris...)

If you don’t read at least a little bit of hiragana, you might look for the Suzuryu building for a long time. Like many high end restaurants in Tokyo’s Ginza, Sushi Yoshitake (3F, Suzuryu Building, 8-7-19 Ginza Chuo-ku Tokyo,tel. 03-6253-7331)... Continue reading

Hi Andrea! This time I went to some other sushi places.. (Will post about them soon!) I think Sukiyabshi Jiro is very interesting to go once, but I think it's just too expensive for a 20 minutes meal.. Hope the movie finally comes to Europe!! Best wishes, Aiste

This is the knife chef Jun Yukimura (Azabu Yukimura, 3* , Tokyo) uses , particularly for shearing pike eels (hamo) bones. The knife comes from Aritsugu, a 450 year old producer from Kyoto, who originally produced swords for samurais. When... Continue reading

Hey Will, I am so glad you are going to Copenhagen. I love that city! I like both, Noma a nd Soelleroed Kro, but they are so different.. Noma is more like an "experience" (expect to eat ants, etc) while Soelleroed Kro serves really delicious and quite classic food... If it's your first time in Copenhagen I would recommend Noma and then.. Soelleroed Kro if you have time. As I've been already to Noma, I think I would choose Soelleroed Kro next time I go to Copenhagen... P.S. You must have some Steff Houlberg hotdogs when in Copenhagen. They are the best!
