“Sushi” is a dish of bite-sized rice seasoned with vinegar, sugar, and salt, then topped with fish, eggs, or seafood.

“Sushi Sumire” was newly opened by Chef Lee Sung-joon, who has worked at various restaurants such as Yoichi, Sushi Taku, and Sushi Kiyose. The curved bar seat, which looks like a wave flowing, catches the eye. The menu consists of two types: a sashimi course and omakase without a single item. The signature menu “Dinner Omakase” enhances the taste with 5 to 7 types of tsumami, such as sashimi and monkfish liver, then 12 to 15 pieces of sushi, kaisendon, soba, and dessert are served one after the other. In particular, sushi made with tuna as the main ingredient, such as akami and judo, and kaisendon, which generously contains caviar and sea urchin, are very popular. In the case of “Lunch Omakase,” the composition of the fish changes slightly, and 1 to 2 pieces of tsumami are served.

â–²Testimonial (Be sure to put on makeup): I ate omakase in my room, but room omakase was only for dinner. It was really nice that the tsumami was clean, and the sushi came out more than I expected, so I was full even before the meal. But when I saw the Kaisen-dong visual, I couldn't help but eat the visuals!!! It was a meal I have no regrets about.

“Sushi Kaisei” is operated under the second brand of the famous sushi omakase restaurant “Sushi Kouji” in Cheongdam-dong. Chef Jeon Sang-yoon, who made his name known in Sushiya and Sushi Kouji, is leading the store as head chef. The signature menu is “Lunch Omakase,” which consists of appetizers using seasonal ingredients, kobachi, sushi, à la carte, soup, and meal dessert. Starting with a soup that gently soothes an empty stomach, smoked tuna and steamed abalone will whet your appetite to the fullest. Afterwards, you can enjoy a variety of sushi feasts using flounder, tuna, hanki, and sea urchin. Gyoku, which has a purple color with purple sweet potatoes, has a soft texture like castella and is great for a sweet finish.

The quality of the sushi is also really good, so if you like it, I definitely recommend going there.

“Sushi Inn,” where you can enjoy the cuisine of Chef Lee Jin-wook from the Japanese restaurant “Sushi Jo” at the Westin Chosun Hotel, is so popular that reservations were closed until the end of March. They only serve lunch on Wednesday and Saturday, and dinner only on the rest of the days except holidays. The signature menu, “Lunch Omakase,” is impressive for its various types of tsumami using seasonal seafood. Among them, the rich flavor of “Inari Doromaki,” which is deep-fried tofu filled with a mixture of minced tuna and sea urchin, raises the anticipation of the meal to the fullest. The most popular type of sushi is “bahunni gunham sushi,” which is topped with plenty of bahoon eel on top of the shari and wrapped in seaweed. The rich, green flavor that covers the tongue and fills the mouth, and the flavor of the sea are exquisite.

“Sushi Ryo Premium” allows you to enjoy sushi omakase at a reasonable price. This is a place where you can experience high-quality sushi presented by Chef Son Jae-woong from The Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The signature menu is “Lunch Omakase,” which starts with sody-marinated chorashi with ingredients such as tomatoes and seaweed. After that, chawanmushi with truffles, herring maki, Japanese mackerel tataki, clear soup, and grilled eggplant came out one after another, and then sushi appeared in earnest. The rich composition stands out, from about 10 types of sushi topped with the freshest ingredients of the day, such as croaker, kamado, scallops, mackerel, and prawns, to eel rice bowls, kaisendon, soba, and desserts. Please note that “Premium Omakase,” which has a more diverse composition, can only be ordered for dinner.

â–²Testimonial (red dot pattern): I visited here looking forward to being able to eat sushi made by Chef Son Jae-woong. First of all, the chosai that comes out at the beginning enhances the taste buds and contains truffles that make you feel bad, so the scent isn't really a joke! When it comes to sushi, the best is to wrap seaweed with sea urchin and shrimp!

“Sushi Glass” is a high-end sushi restaurant newly opened near Samseong Station by Chef Son Seung-yeon of “Sushi Sanwon” in Samseong-dong. The interior, which has a sophisticated feel with dim lighting, and Hermès brand tableware, creates a luxurious atmosphere. Chawanmushi, which makes use of the deep flavor of chicken broth, marks the beginning of omakase, and dishes such as ankimo, which have an excellent green flavor, and scallops and octopus with an attractive, chewy texture are served. After cleaning the mouth with clam soup, sushi topped with flounder, horse mackerel, judo, smoked mackerel, and gizzard will appear one after another. After enjoying the combination of the diverse texture of each sashimi and the chewy shari, it's nice to add a hearty touch of kaisendon and make your mouth feel refreshed with sweet gyoku and dessert fruit.
