I am searching for a sushi place, preferably hole-in-the-wall, that serves authentic sushi - no rolls, no crazy sauces, or deep-fried fish, mayo etc.... Just fresh nigiri and sashimi.
Oh, is run by Japanese people (not Korean, Chinese, Malaysian..)
Can anyone kindly share?
I'm with you. It's hard to find the real thing. My favorite is in Long Beach, Long Island. Nagahama is run by Hide, a real bona-fide sushi chef, and his nigiri and sashimi are authentic and excellent.
I wish I could find quality sushi in the Long Island City area where I live and work. Alas, alack.
