After almost five years as sous-chef at Saké Restaurant & Bar, Yuji Matsuzaki decided that he wanted to move away from modern Japanese food and open his own authentic place in the suburbs. Sitting in this tiny eatery, you feel like you’re in old Japan. The wood and bamboo decor, the premium sake and the sushi bar are all very traditional.
Kakizaki only offers an omakase (set menu), but you are sure to enjoy every course. Otsukuri comprises high-quality sashimi. The three pieces of tuna and three pieces of gurnard are cut with impeccable precision. Hassun is a tasting plate of six fabulous Japanese dishes, including mushroom broth, egg custard, miso cod, tempura oyster, tuna belly and house-made fish cake. Nigiri sushi features 12 courses that move from subtle to heavy flavours, and each delicate piece is carefully constructed before your eyes.
PSST! For just $49 per person, the restaurant will match six different kinds of sake with your meal.
