Legendary sushi maestro, Chef Shiro Kashiba brings his authentic and innovative Edomae style of sushi and acclaimed Japanese cuisine to downtown Seattle. Chef Shiro Kashiba started Seattle’s first sushi bar in 1970 after years of grueling training alongside world renown sushi chef Jiro Ohno in Tokyo
Reservations were hard to come by but I can guarantee this is some of the most authentic and well crafted sushi place. Let the chef whiz you away on a magical culinary journey. The setting is intimate, with only a handful of sushi bar seats. The sushi is the star of the show, and you have front row seats. I’ll let my photos do more justice.
Do the Omakase. It is unbelievable. The chef or waiter will give you the dish and tell you a little background about each piece of sushi. The chef has prepared each dish with the perfect amount of wasabi and soy sauce so you really don’t need to add anymore. I am huge fan of the netflix Documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.” If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend checking it out if you are a fan of Sushi or food in general. The way that Jiro prepares sushi is almost an art form. That is the same feeling that I got going to Sushi Kashiba. It is not surprising to me that Jiro and Shiro are good friends.
