Sushi Nakazawa

            Believe The Hype!!  The Best Sushi Patrolling Ever

Sushi Nakazawa
Sushi Nakazawa 23 Commerce Street, NYC   (212)-924-2212 DSC02342 I finally made it to Sushi Nakazawa!! This patrolling was definitely the most exciting patrolling ever. Especially since it’s still hard to get a reservation at Sushi Nakazawa. Actually, it’s the most exciting patrolling ever since I started my Cutie Patroller blog!!!  You can believe the hype about Nakawaza. I am not over exaggerating. Sometimes you get disappointed when you have high expectations, but my experience at Nakazawa was so much more than I expected. Super friendly Chef Daisuke Nakazawa explained each nigiri to us in English and Japanese. Chef Nakazawa kindly answered any questions I had with smile. Also, how cute is it that he uses a mini iPad to show pictures of fish and explain each nigiri to the counter guests? This is definitely a new way of “OMOTENASHI” (the heart of Japanese hospitality) and I’m loving it!! We had 20 pieces of sushi Omakase. Plus one extra in the end. All of the sushi pieces were incredible. Traditional, yet each piece had a cute twist. When I had salmon it was full of wara-smoke flavor. The red snapper had Kinkan zest. One of my favorite nigiri was Akagai. Since I’m mini clam which Mirugai, Agarai, Aoyagi, and Awabi are my absolute favorite sushi so when the chef told me he had Akagai I was so excited!! It was the best Akagai I ever had between NY and Japan.

Sushi Omakase at ”Sushi Dojo”

Who said only Japanese can muster the art of sushi!? Congrats to owner/Sushi chef David Bouhadana *\(^_^)/* Sushi Dojo serves authentic Japanese cuisine and specialize in OMAKASE. If you’re expecting a California roll and Dragon roll then this is not the right place for you. David trained at one of fancy Japanese spots, 15 EAST in Union Square and Hatsuhana in Midtown. I didn’t sit in front of David at the sushi counter this time, but my chef Makoto Yoshizawa was fantastic!! First he asked me my preference of fishes so I told him I prefered Red Snapper, Fluke, Sea Bass over Hamachi and Saba and other fatty white fishes. Then I asked him what kind of clam they had. They had two of my favorite clams which are Aoyagi and Migugai. YAY!! and my last request was Uni & Ootoro.  I had a Sushi & Sashimi Omakase for $75 with Hakkaisan Sake. Sushi Dojo’s atmosphere is nothing special yet quality of sushi are LOVELY ~~~ xoxo
