Noresore (baby eel) at Kyo Ya!

Getting torafugu in the US is a waste of time. Stick to the domestic, at least it is fresh.

It has been noresore season for at least a couple weeks already.

Yasuda v 15 East v Ichimura

I had an astounding meal at 15 East on Friday night. Which included Maine uni in the shell, that was the best Maine uni I have ever eaten.

Nobu Next Door: The Good ,Bad Ugly, Good

I first met him in 77 at the original Hatsuhana, before he became head chef there and later moved to the Park Ave location.

Best Sushi: Yasuda, Ushiwakamaru, 15 East?

I have to add Jado Sushi to the argument now that Mr. Nakajima has moved there.

Epic omakase experience at Jado Sushi

It is an old family recipe from Kanda, Tokyo. THe best anago you will ever have.

Sushi In Harlem. Nakajima now at Jado Sushi.

Nakajima just started there a week ago. He is getting top notch fish from Japan. The experience is one of the best in the City.

But remember, you must sit at the bar with him. It is a rather larger place and the food at the tables will be different, just a fact of the biz.

Sushi In Harlem. Nakajima now at Jado Sushi.

For all of you high end sushi lovers, Mr. Nakajima formerly of Sushiden and Shinbashi has now taken the position of chef at Jado Sushi near 114th Street and Frederick Douglas.

I ate there last night and he has picked up where he left off and then some. And the best anago in NYC, maybe anywhere.

If you want to see some pics and descriptions go to whoamieating on Instagram.

Weighing Nakazawa vs Ichimura

And BTW, Nakazawa did not make sushi in Tokyo, he was an apprentice. He learned to make sushi in the US on the west coast.

So no matter how he makes sushi, good or bad, it reflects little on Jiro.

Weighing Nakazawa vs Ichimura

Nothing that would be surprising. Jiro is famous because of the documentary. Ask around Tokyo and the locals that know would not even put him in the top ten.

Where's the best place for knife sharpening?

The problem with the Chefs Choice is that you need to go slowly and be patient. Very few people use it correctly. I have one and am a knife nut. I also have tons of sharpeners and stones. One of my friends got one as a present and called me claiming it was broken. It was not. He was rushing the process and did NOT read the instructions. I schooled him in the correct usage and he was amazed. I get razor sharp results. I have to warn guests who use my knives to be very careful with them as they cut through stuff far easier than they will be used to.
