Sushi in Hong Kong
First of all, thank you so much to everyone who has put posts up for Hong Kong. I am heading to Taipei and Hong Kong next week and I have such a long list of places I want to go and things I want to eat and it was ll off of posts on CH. One thing I haven't seen though is sushi. I'd really like to have sushi one night just to give my body a rest and have some "clean" food in between all the fattening goodness I will be feasting on. I'm more about the quality of the fish than the presentation and I am an adventurous eater so anyone have any suggestions? Again, many thanks for all the great suggestions!
Sase is my current favorite in HK. It will be hard to book, especially if you want a spot in front of Sase-san.
Plenty of choices in Taipei, and my current favorite is Gyodoike near Dunhua Elementary School. Fresh fish, great presentation. Other choices include Honda, Taisho Roman…etc.
I'm still a fan of Kiyotaki in NoHo on Gough Street. Simple styling and I've always had great fish there. The chef/owner is a lot of fun and loves his food. Just ask him to feed you and he'll serve you the best of what he has. He also sometimes has this awesome grey/blue tofu that tastes more pungent than the normal stuff. He uses it for a great Agedashi tofu.
Like every sushi restaurant in HK make sure you go for dinner - the fish is flown in from Japan after the morning markets in Tokyo so you will be eating the fish the same day. If you go for lunch you will always be eating yesterday's fish.
