This would be our fourth trip of this year to Japan. Just to share our dining experience so far
Sushi Kiyota--Already mentioned on my other thread, still the best nigiri experience I had so far in this trip.
Sushi Ichiyanagi--We went for lunch and I was not sure if the itamae is the taisho. Overall experience is underwhelmed. The otsumami is nothing special to talk about and I thought otsumami is the highlight of kanesaka sushi-ya style . They are very heavy on sauce. Shari is on the cold side and not balance with the neta. Neta quality is really so so. The chef is also rather sloppy in making the sushi, some pieces fall apart. I don't understand why it is so highly rated in tabelog?
Sushi Harutaka--2nd Visit and their price has increased compared to our last visit in October 2014. The Otsumami continues to stand out especially the amadai clear soup and sawara, but nigiri remains not as good as their ostumami Too bad we can't just order the otsumami alone. I found the kiyota nigiri is much more balance than harutaka. Buri is in season and is the most memorable nigiri piece I recall from this meal.
More to come....
