There are lots of adjectives it’s possible to use to explain a chef: passionate, curious, inventive, well-trained and daring. Add list the adjective “entrepreneurial” may become “great chef”.

On my small first trip to Sushi Bar, a then recently-opened up restaurant in Jl. Kartika Plaza, I had been treated towards the most superb Japanese sushi and sashimi I’d ever sampled in Indonesia. I recall the enjoyable odor of vinegar when i joined center. Prepared before me with a quiet and heavy man known as simply Yamamoto who’s standing on the other hand from the counter, I respected his brisk movements because he worked out making the sushi. I marveled at his sophistication. I had been entranced and thrilled the foods I’d sampled in Japan were available these days in Indonesia. Yamamoto never disappoints.

Recption menus offers a variety of authentic Japanese delights: Tempura, Sushi and Sashimi with taste so marvelous. The clientele is worldwide.
