The new concept will see raw, cooked, and cured seafood on bread that is made from high hydration, long-aged doughs instead of sushi rice, like the ones we are used to.
This bread sushi experience is definitely going to be an interesting one, and the menu starts off with three snacks, followed by eight to 10 bread sushi, one hotpot, and two sweets.
You can only book a reservation for up to five people for one seating from 18 January 2022 onwards, and since this is a very small restaurant with limited seating, a payment guarantee needs to be paid upfront. Forfeits will be applied if you end up doing a late cancellation or if you don’t show up.
