Did You Know? Sushi Chefs Train for 10 Years!

Hideaki Taneda, the executive chef of our Seattle Japanese restaurant, exemplifies the professionalism and sophistication of the master sushi chef. Chefs are major figures in Japanese culture, as the quality of their food is seen as representing their nation–whether well or poorly. Traditionally, it takes about ten years to master the art of sushi. It is believed that one eats with one’s eyes, not only one’s mouth, hence the elaborate preparation that guests will behold at the I Love Sushi restaurant in Seattle/Lake Union. Chef Taneda’s colorful displays foreshadow the complex flavors to follow, and–we hope–make every meal a thoroughly delightful and memorable one.
