Legendary sushi maestro, Chef Shiro Kashiba brings his authentic and innovative Edomae style of sushi and acclaimed Japanese cuisine to downtown Seattle. Chef Shiro Kashiba started Seattle’s first sushi bar in 1970 after years of grueling training alongside world renown sushi chef Jiro Ohno in Tokyo
Located next to the Pike Place Market, Sushi Kashiba offers the highest standard Japanese cuisine that sushi lovers have come to expect from who the Seattle Times calls, the “Sushi Sensei” of Seattle.
“To get a sense of what it must have been like to watch Picasso at work, grab a seat at the sushi bar and watch Chef Shiro Kashiba deftly crack a raw quail egg and deposit the dime-size yolk in the middle of a pile of translucent orange flying fish roe that has been wrapped in dried seaweed”
To Chef Shiro Kashiba, it feels like it was just yesterday.
Sushi Kashiba is a popular sushi joint known for its nigiri, and is located right next to Seattle’s historic Pike Market. Grab a seat at the sushi bar if you can, where you just might find chef Shiro Kashiba hard at work.
Ordering one of Sushi Kashiba’s sushi dinners is probably your best bet. The courses are determined by the restaurant, and the cuts of salmon, eel, tuna, amberjack and other fish are always fresh and beautifully presented. The meal is finished off with Sushi Kashiba’s trademark cake-like egg dessert. The restaurant has several sakes on hand and also features à la carte items like fried agedashi tofu, oysters on the half shell and steamed monkfish liver.
