Possibly unfamiliar terms are defined below. Additional explanations and stories will follow in posts.

>Omakase おまかせ- Leave it up to chef. That is however only the simple definition. Omakase has a much deeper, and complex meaning which I will explain in a separate blog post.

>Chirashi ちらし- Sushi donburi, or box, with assorted sashimi fish and other ingredients on top of the rice.

>Sashimi Chirashi - An omakase chirashi. “Relatively” thin slice sashimi fish on a bed of sushi rice.

>Nigiri Sushi - It's a traditional form of Edo-Mae sushi. (Please forgive the inaccurate description since Edo-Mae only used Tokyo area ingredients. However, this is the only way to explain it in the US.) Not just fish slices on sushi rice balls. Moisture control, occasionally aging process is given to fish, to work well with seasoned rice. We also minimize seasoning and toppings to feature main ingredients' flavor.

>Soup - Boxes except new "Omakase Nigiri Sushi & Sashimi Set" don't come with soups. Soup (broth) portions are about 6 oz.

I hope this is enough for you to comfortably read our menu. Please give me your feedback to make this guide better.

Thank you very much!
