Grills the superfine quality fresh seafood over an open fire to make it increase its flavor…..




 Original taste of fresh seafood is strengthened by ‘aburi’ or grill over an open fire.

‘Sushimaru’ carefully selects fresh seafood for their sushi depending on which fishing port comes from, such as prawn from Amakusa in Nagasaki and sea urchin from Hokkaido. “We never use any imported or frozen seafood. We cannot compromise on selecting of fresh seafood for our sushi.” Shopkeeper proudly says.


Single-hook fishing ‘kinki’ from Abashiri, in Hokkaido Single-hook fishing ‘kinme-dai’ from ‘Choshi’ in Chiba


For example, single-hook fishing ‘kinki’ or kichiji rockfish from Abashiri inHokkaidois cooked for ‘sashimi’ or slices of raw fish. ‘Kinki’ lives under 1500 meters depth in northern sea, therefore it always keeps rich fat. Now ‘kinki’ is one of the highest quality wild fishes fromHokkaido.  Another kind of deep-sea fish, single-hook fishing ‘kinme-dai’ or splendid alfonsino from ‘Choshi’ inChibais cooked in ‘aburi’. The skin of ‘Kinme-dai’ with rich fat is grilled over open fire in a minute to cut unnecessary fat, and then it is strengthened its taste and flavor. Conger eel is also cooked by ‘aburi’ after simmered in a stock.

Addition to the above items, other superfine quality of seafood, such as pink tuna, red tuna, salmon roe, and sea urchin are also included in the advantageous assorted nigiri-zushi. You will be able to enjoy eating delicious nigiri-zushi cooked by more than 35 years experienced owner chef.
