When Mrs. Selfish and I started our Selfish Year, we decided we’d try to eat the best of what every country had to offer. After watching Jiro Dreams of Sushi, what better place to eat than Jiro Sushi in Tokyo?
After all, the man does have 3-Michelin stars. It’s gotta be good at $350 a head, right? That’s what I thought at first. I even went as far as to make reservations via the Park Hyatt Tokyo. But then we started talking to a friend about sushi in Japan, and she clued us in to Otomezushi in Kanazawa.
Nestled in between the ocean and the Japanese Alps, Kanazawa is in the perfect location for sushi. The Pacific Ocean’s proximity ensures an abundant supply of fresh fish, while the alps provide the area with fresh spring water, and near-perfect conditions for rice.
Whatever the reason Otomezushi is good. Really good. Wake up in the middle of the night like a food-crazed maniac good.
And man, that meal did not disappoint.
