On the lacquer platter, custom-designed by artisans in Kanazawa for the restaurant - like all the ceramics that were specially commissioned in Kyoto - the chef places his nigiris one after the other. The typically Japanese rigor mingles with indulgence when the rice, simple and carefully balanced, supports with its texture, temperature and subtle taste a tuna so fatty that it melts in your mouth. The sushis are paired according to the wishes of each person with a selection of sakes or precisely infused teas - and often cold-brewed to fully exacerbate their umami - or organic wines selected from several hundred references for the perfection of their harmony, so difficult to achieve, with raw fish, itself carefully sourced by the chefs from the best suppliers and fishermen, whom they have met.
More than a restaurant, more than an experience, Sushi Shunei is an emotion. As such, it is difficult to describe with words - you have to live it. We are waiting for you.
