“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.”
— Julia Child

Been going to this hole in the wall for 13 years now and it’s about time I created an album for it and share my favorite secret spot. Delicious, basic, no frills type of sushi restaurant at a good value. I made sure not to take pictures of the saba nigiri and sashimi that was offered since I wasn’t able to eat it.

Tiny restaurant that only seats 16 people. Chef/Owner Matsuoka Akio (73) ,trained in Ginza, is the sweetest and coolest sushi chef in town.

Hours of operation: Thursday-Saturday 5pm-10pm 90% by rsvp in advance. Call ahead for availability. Cash Only

    Everything looks so fresh. Not at all a hole in the wall but a cute quaint Japanese owned and run restaurant. Am excited to try soon!
