  • 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 wonder can people like saito who spent years of their life just learning how to cut up and prepare simple raw seafood actually cook?
    i am talking about dishes that have a reputation for being hard to prepare, stuff like:
    galantine, beef wellington, soufflé, macaroons etc.
    seriously now if sushi were a desert it would be tiramisu (>_>)
    i would also like to know it saito had to go to school to become a certified chef?
    i'm curious since it takes 3 1/2 years of training to become a cook in my country, during that time you had to
    visit school for 30 weeks were they would teach you: service, kitchen Technology, food chemistry,
    business management, french, etc

      Thank you, thank you. I'd like to thank my mom and dad for believing in me, and thank you to the Academy for nominating me. We put a lot of work into being as pretentious as possible, reshot scenes that we didn't think were pretentious enough. We consulted with a panel of experts on pretentiousness, and, and, and, we're just so honoured to have your approval, postreinanimation. Thank you. Thank you!

    The magic is real! I wasn't sure how to describe it either!!! was it the hype? the restaurant? the chef? the sushi? the answer is all of the above working in harmony. It's like meditation, you forget about everything else but the sushi. Every bites you take is so good. It was something you can truly be appreciate...appreciate living, breathing, and appreciate of your time of being here. I sound like a koo koo I know.

    I understand that some Chefs are the best at what they do. But videos like these can overhype things such that it can distort future diners' opinions. Food is food when well prepared. And nobody misses anything by not visiting Saito. Other Sushi Chefs are good too. Saito is not a God. Nobody is a God.

    I can understand actually getting excited over good sushi. There are so many chain sushi shops and lots of just flat out bad sushi that is either cheap or mass produced here in Japan. Lots of hit and miss oportunities based on ingredients and the time put into making it. Anyone can make sushi, isn't that hard at all. In the end, 90% of the time, its just rice, fish, some seaweed or vegetable. But it does take some kind of skill or experience to pick the right ingredients, the right cut and to put it together in a balanced way.

      Straight Up Eats 12 дней назад +1

      Yes, you are absolutely right about that! Even kaiten sushi is comparable to mid-tier sushi restaurants in Japan, but when you try sushi by a chef who has spent over half of their life learning, studying, practicing the art of sushi, there's absolutely nothing like it! For instance, I always hated uni because of it's terrible, briney taste. Well, I tried it at a really good sushi bar and fell in love. So creamy and buttery; there's nothing else like it in the world. The chef told us how he worked for many years to find a good supplier that would bring him only the freshest uni in the ocean. THAT'S what you won't get at sushiro or any of the other cheap places.

  • Steve Martin
    Steve Martin 16 дней назад

    This guy is a master and we should indeed respect the culture. So mistakenly calling fish "Sushi" is a sin most of us Americans make. However, since the goal is educating here, you need to define sushi and distinguish between Sashimi. Sushi, in it's original historical form is rice and sea weed. Yes it can and often does have more things added for color and taste. Original forms wrap the rice in Nori, dried flat sea weed with the nori on the outside. Americans, and in some cases, Japanese catering to American and other's tastes, greatly enhance the recipe and so we have highly distorted versions that are very Americanized. Sahimi is not Sushi, and Sushi is not Sashimi, although they CAN be combined.

      Basically, you can't get a reservation unless you have a friend who has one who can bring you in on their reservation. If the chef likes you, he'll let you book in the future. No people can eat with him unless a regular vouches for them, in a way. Price range is roughly 30,000 yen per person, and it is a full 3 hour meal :D

      I was partially kidding, I'd actually like to know what you found to be extraordinary about his work - I'd say the best sushi I've had in the US was actually at Shiro's in Seattle, from Shiro himself - I found his sushi to be far more delicate in texture and much more memorable than his counterparts making the same fish

I kind of feel sorry for people in the comments who say you're overacting. Like, how do you just go through life mindlessly shoving food in your mouth, not paying attention to the flavors? When you have seriously good food, you just can't hold back the emotions. Been of fan of you guys for years and you always make such awesome videos.
