Dine With the World’s Greatest Sushi Chef
By Bob & Sue
Many knowledgeable Japanese believe Takashi Saito is now the greatest sushi chef in the world. With only seven seats and located inside a car park, Saito delivers a stunning menu using smaller cuts of the highest quality fish, specially textured rice, and the proper balance of vinegar and salt. Highlights included the three great tunas: the lean, bright red akami, the chu-toro medium tuna and the well-marbled o-torro, which is the finest grade with a richness approaching beef. The two unis presented were spectacular – the short-spined traditional is bright yellow and the drier purple-shelled urchin is a darker yellow.
