Saito: The Sushi God of Tokyo

  • Опубликовано: 23 дек 2016
  • Sushi Saito is a 3 Michelin Star sushi restaurant, and many regard it as the best in Japan. We got to spend the day with Saito, to ask him about his work, and to eat his soul shattering sushi.

      I don't understand why people are hating this vid just because they're acting so cringy or something and before you guys even complain just go have some good sushi first before you even say shit cause I don't like to see anyone complain about how cringy it was or anything.

    After the events of One Punch Man, Saitama changed his name to Saito and opened a small sushi restaurant. But his sushi is so damn good that the restaurant grew in size and popularity and earned the 3 Star Michelin Awards from a bunch of Grumpy Old White Dudes.

    Me encantó este video!! Me dió la oportunidad de ver el sushi tradicional, aunque el que ahora se hace en América es delicioso, creo que le han sido añadidos ingredientes que no tienen nada que ver con lo tradicional, de este modo creo la gastronomía de cada país debe ser respetada en sus ingedientes tradicionales, así conservamos la cultura de cada país, como la salud, pues las modificaciones que hacemos a las distintas culturas gastronómicas están inmiscuidos ingredientes con conservadores artificiales y alimentos industrializados. Ojalá un día pueda visitar ese restaurant. Felicidades señor por cuidar de la cultura Japonesa a través de su hermosa y deliciosa gastronomía.

    Japanese cuisine and style of prep in the kitchen is so underrated. People have no idea how focus you have to be, especially doing sushi at that level. The knife work itself has to be at god level. huge fan of not just sushi, but the prep work behind it. great video.

    Guys, I love you for doing what you're doing. Feels like having some kind of japanese culture at home and that makes me happy. Japan is my number 1 I-want-to-go-to country for as long as i can remember, but i'll probably never be able to go there. I love watching your videos, they make me smile and at the same time i want to cry because they're all so beautiful and familiar and I can't put in words how happy I am that I "accidentally" found your channel once. Every video is like a 15 minutes short trip to japan. Please continue forever.

      Simon and Martina I understand, but like I said, no matter how clean they are I won't eat food, especially uncooked food that was touched by someone else's bare hands. Not insulting the chef or his craft. Just how I am.

      +Aegon Targaryen they...don’t pick their noses or scratch their butt in between each piece. They’re very very disciplined and have total focus on making the food perfectly. You’re literally right there starting at them so you can see everything that happens and the whole open kitchen is sparklingly clean.

    The video is good, but you guys actually focused on the wrong part of making sushi. The most important part of sushi is not the fish, it's the rice (I know this is very hard to believe, but low rice quality can easily turn the sushi into a disaster). So the next time when you do a sushi restaurant review, it would be best to include how the chef choose, wash and cook the sushi rice.

    Saito the god of sushi? Maybe if he works hard for other 40 years he will be able to come close to Ono Jiro from Sukiyabashi Jiro, who has dedicated 75 years to mastering the skill of sushi making and who really deserve to be called a sushi master. Better do more research next time.

Also, I was moved to express my feelings towards sushi in a wonderful way and it was such a tearful truth. Respect each other 's culture. I think that such a world is desirable. I think that it is wrong because I am not good at English, but I am pleased that this happy feeling is conveyed.

    To those that say they are overreacting, It may seem like fish and rice has it limits but it's precisely because it seems like such a simple dish that the synergy of flavours can catch you off guard. Good sushi has a depth that can invoke such reactions that is really difficult to express in words.
