Shiro’s Sushi – Belletown Seattle, USA

I would have to say that Vancouverites are quite blessed with many authentic Japanese restaurants (however declining very rapidly)… but a little south is unknown territory to me. I’ve always wanted to try Shiro’s Sushi, but never had time to make reservations.

A small restaurant able to seat about 30 people, reservations are a MUST. They open 5:30pm daily, and you’ll find that everyone arrives promptly and will be lining up before 5:15pm.

Overall I think this should be the base standard for Japanese dining. A few menu items were brought in from Japan. Sake menu not as big as I would have wanted, but worth the wait if you’re in the area. Don’t forget to call for reservations! Unless you like waiting on the street.

Apparently Daisuke Nakazawa from Jiro’s Sushi (Ginza, Tokyo) works here. Maybe you can sit at the counter and see him?

Currently residing in Vancouver, Canada. I get paid by managing email and web servers, configuring software and hardware. I’m a techie by day and daddy at night. I love cars. I love watches. I love to travel and I love to eat. I’ve got twice as many shoes as my wife... So I guess that means I love to shop.
