A quality piece of sushi is basically a little taste of heaven, and that’s what you get at Sushi Nakazawa. Watching the chefs work in methodical and meticulous fashion, I can’t help but wonder how many hours upon hours of practice and sweat were put into their craft. It was a sight to behold for sure.
Chef Nakazawa appeared in the 2011 documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” about 85-year-old sushi master Jiro Ono and his three-star Michelin restaurant located in a Tokyo subway station. Back then, Nakazawa was Jiro’s apprentice and spent most of the film trying to get his master to sign off on an egg custard sushi (tamagoyaki). Finally, after God knows how many tries, he gets the approval from Jiro.
I found it very fitting that, after 20 courses of sushi made from different kinds of fancy seafood, the dining experience ends with the seemingly simple tamagoyaki. It was absolutely delicious.
