Ordering Sushi in Japan

Have you ever ordered sushi in Japan? If you’re accustomed to American sushi restaurants, an actual Japanese restaurant may be quite the surprising experience.

One of the more outstanding differences you may experience in Japan is that a sushi restaurant might not actually have a menu. In such cases, it is generally understood that all diners eat omakase, meaning that they trust the chef to give them the best possible sushi with whichever ingredients are currently at their peak quality. This can seem risky to some diners, especially ones who have to account for allergies or other dietary restrictions. However, your itamae will generally be open to discussing any needs you may have; it is actually considered a faux pas to not bring up any such needs before your chef begins to work.

Until such a time as you are able to get the full Japanese experience in Japan, you can count on I Love Sushi to give you a quality and authentic sushi meal. Come and see what our Japanese restaurant in Seattle has to offer tonight!
