This omakase restaurant spotlights a young chef with Michelin-star schooling.
Reservations here are only available two months ahead as the chef, Toda Riku, who already boasts 12 years' experience in the Edo-style sushi game and once occupied a one-Michelin-starred restaurant in Tokyo, whips up sushi bites in high demand. Here, feast on fresh produce from Tsukiji Market during a 16-course omakase dinner, with highlights including steamed abalone with abalone liver sauce, and seriously in-demand uni from Hokkaido.
The buzz: Occupying an imposing Japanese house on Petchaburi Road, Sushi Ichizu highlights fresh produce from Tsukiji Market and the delicate knife-work of Toda Riku, former sous chef at Tokyo's one-Michelin-starred Sushi Sugita. Here, there are only 16 seats on offer a day and reservations open up two months ahead of time.
