Sushi lovers should not miss an opportunity to mingle with Japanese sushi chef Morio Sakayori from this Monday until March 3 at Kissho Restaurant in HCMC’s District 1.

The chef will prepare three types of sashimi, grilled teriyaki beef or seafood, three choices of Nigiri sushi, broiled mushroom salad, a choice of soup and green tea ice cream topped with fresh fruit and black honey.

During the meal, Sakayori will guide diners through the proper tasting etiquette to experience the full flavor of each dish.

He used to work at the Harbor Plaza Hotel in Hong Kong before he was called to Beijing to take on the role of restaurant manager and chef. This gave him the opportunity to open the popular Morio Restaurant in Hotel G. Known for its unique style of sushi, Morio Restaurant takes classic Japanese sushi and merges it with culinary influences from the U.S., Hong Kong, and Beijing.

The Kissho Restaurant which is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. is located at 14 Nguyen Hue Boulevard, District 1, HCMC, tel: 08 3823.2223.
