Back at Sushi Ran

During my last trip to San Francisco in early 2017, I once again enjoyed an amazingly awesome omakase style dinner at the sushi bar at Sushi Ran. I have been there a few times and still enjoyed it as much as every time I went there. First, I started with a moriawase 1o piece sashimi platter with aaa grade big eye tuna, yellowtail, ocean trout, bonito and barracuda at two pieces each. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures. Omakase Sashimi I […]

Sashimi Platter at Matsumi

Again I went to Matsumi some time ago, my absolute favourite Sushi restaurant in Hamburg, Germany. It is located in the Collonaden near to the Jungfernstieg at the inner Alster river and I highly recommend it for the most amazing sushi. I don’t know any better place. We got seats at the sushi bar and started out with some very nice side dishes and a sake kava temaki (grilled salmon skin hand roll), which is my absolute favourite hand roll at Matsumi. They […]

Sashimi at Toni’s Sushi Bar in Miami Beach

While in Miami for New Year’s Eve, I went to Toni’s Sushi Bar in Miami Beach for some Sashimi. As a party of two we went there with no reservation on December 31 2015 and got some nice seats at the sushi bar. It is a small restaurant with 50 seats at the most, centrally located. Operating since 1987, they claim to be the first sushi restaurant in Miami Beach. High Zagat ratings underline the ongoing success of the restaurant. Sashimi […]

This time I went twice, this being about the second visit… the most impressive sushi experience so far. Executive Chef Takatoshi Toshi We went there a few […]

Following The Trails Of Sushi Ran: Trying Akiko’s Restaurant again

It is one of my favourite sushi restaurants and is located at 431 Bush St near the Dragon’s Gate to Chinatown in San Francisco. I have been there in 2014, and to make it short, it’s still great. Image Source: Akiko’s Restaurant It is still supposed to be of the very few restaurant that can at all be compared to my all time favourite Sushi […]

Tuna Sashimi at Matsumi

Being back in Hamburg for just a few days, I stopped by at Matsumi, my all time favourite Japanese Restaurant, for some delicious Sashimi. In fact, it was a gigantic sashimi platter with the finest assortment of fish selected by sushi chef Hideaki Morita.The tuna repertoire was of particular grandiosity. It was (from left to right) Toro, O-toro, Chūtoro and Hara-Toro.

Following The Trails Of Sushi Ran: Akiko’s Restaurant

Wondering about the staff that left Sushi Ran in Sausalito for new endeavours in San Francisco, I set out to test them against my benchmark experiences at Sushi Ran. So, I managed to get a sushi bar seat at the very busy, always fully booked Akiko’s Restaurant, located in 431 Bush St near the Dragon’s Gate to Chinatown and Union Square in San Francisco. Attention: It is not to be confused with another restaurant named Akiko on Mason St, which apparently was previously […]

It is a very small place with roughly 30 seats, half of which are at the long sushi bar. Apparently, it will officially open on […]

Following The Trails Of Sushi Ran

Since I was in San Francisco for Apple’s WWDC 2014, I had some time to explore the latest developments surrounding my favourite local sushi restaurant Sushi Ran in Sausalito, California. Actually, I first came across Sushi Ran during an Apple Keynote, when Steve Jobs showed off the restaurant within a product demo, virtually making a reservation. So, as an Apple fanboy, I went – and I LOVED it. Since then, I have been at Sushi Ran every single time I was in the […]
