The popular sushi restaurant’s allure lies in its commitment to quality ingredients and expert craftsmanship, complemented by a rich selection of inventive menu items.


Six essential techniques showcased in a must-try sushi combo

One of ITAMAE SUSHI’s distinct focuses is the exclusive use of fish caught in Tokyo Bay. The “Edomae Sushi Combo” features sushi crafted by the chef with the best fish of the day, embodying the essence of freshness.

The carefully selected fish are exceptionally fresh, enhancing the sushi’s flavor.

At ITAMAE SUSHI, the sushi’s appeal is further heightened by six traditional techniques, integral to its preparation. These techniques, deeply rooted in sushi’s history, include yubiki (blanching), tsuke (marinating), aburi (searing), niru (simmer), kombujime (kelp-curing), and sujime or shiojime (vinegar or salt curing).

In the Edomae Sushi Combo, each sushi piece exemplifies one of these six artisanal techniques.


Each piece of sushi is a testament to the chef’s skill, with techniques meticulously chosen to complement the specific fish. This careful preparation allows diners to truly appreciate the artistry of the sushi chef.

At ITAMAE SUSHI, you can taste and experience the depth and tradition of Japanese sushi, as embodied in this dish.

The generously-portioned “Sushi Restaurant’s Fish & Chips” will surprise you

Apart from traditional sushi offerings, ITAMAE SUSHI also serves up innovative twists on classic dishes. A good example is their “Sushi Restaurant’s Fish & Chips,” an inventive rendition of the globally renowned fish and chips of British fame.

While cod is commonly used in fish and chips, ITAMAE SUSHI uses swordfish, noted for its harmonious balance of fat and lean parts, yielding a thick and juicy texture when fried.


The crispy coating is made from a unique blend, retaining its crunchiness over time.

The indispensable vinegar is the same type used in sushi rice preparation, a specially blended Japanese-style vinegar. This was perfected after numerous trials to match the robustness of traditional malt vinegar.

Combined with a peppery tartar sauce, it’s a culinary masterpiece. This Japanese adaptation is sure to enchant you!


“Fresh Sea Urchin from Hadate” offers uni as you like it

ITAMAE SUSHI’s menu also features unique items, such as the “Fresh Sea Urchin from Hadate” sourced from Hadate Suisan Co., Ltd., known to provide top-tier uni (sea urchin).


“羽立の箱うに,” Fresh Sea Urchin from Hadate 3,980 JPY (tax included)

The uni from Hadate Suisan is characterized by its strong sweetness and minimal fishiness, a testament to its superior freshness compared to regular varieties. Each urchin is painstakingly hand-harvested from its shell and its prized flesh carefully arranged in a box, reflecting the meticulous effort put into it.

Dipping the uni in soy sauce allows you to savor its premium quality, offering a taste experience that is unique to this carefully selected seafood delicacy.


Next, try placing rice and uni on the provided nori seaweed for a hand-roll style experience. The mild tartness of the rice complements the sweetness of the uni most admirably.


Alternatively, you can enjoy it as a donburi (rice bowl), topping the rice with uni to your heart’s content. The way you enjoy this delectable uni dish is up to you!

Due to its limited availability, it’s a highly sought-after item at ITAMAE SUSHI.
