Edomae Sushi and Osaka sushi

Maetomo Japanese cuisine Kaiseki & Sushi’s sushi counter selects their ingredients using white or red vinegar to prepare the rice depending on the specific ingredients used in their sushi, and the menu will be dependent on the season. They utilize their perfected technique of cutting in the preparation of both Edomae Sushi and Osaka sushi to deliver the seasonal flavors of the ocean. I personally loved their creations of both Edomae Sushi and Osaka sushi as it brings out the unique, refreshing flavors of the fresh seafood with no hint of fishiness at all.

Maetomo Japanese cuisine Kaiseki & Sushi’s Kaiseki menu presents their cuisine with a modern essence, to bring out the finest seasonal Japanese flavours in their ingredients. Kaiseki is a dining style that evolved together with the Chanoyu tea ceremony tradition, which developed a consecrated ritual of fine rules to the table. Maetomo Japanese cuisine Kaiseki & Sushi serves signature creations such as bowl served dishes that illustrate soup flavours to a distinguished perfection. Using fresh ingredients from Japan the soup brings out the warm feeling that comes with the savory bonito soup and the delicate touch of decoration showcases the amount of care Chef Maetomo puts into his dishes.
