Chef Shiro Kashiba started Seattle's first sushi bar in 1970 after years of grueling training alongside the world renown sushi chef Jiro Ono in Tokyo. In 2015, Shiro opened his new place Sushi Kashiba in the heart of Pike Place.

I was lucky enough to get bar seating on a work trip to Seattle back in 2017. The pieces were impeccable with some more modern takes like seared otoro and salmon. My most memorable piece was definetly the anago, which had the most amazing glaze, texture and flavour I've ever tasted with eel.
