This Video Explores Sushi Saito, One of the Best Sushi Bars in the World

Let Chef Takashi Saito transport you to a state of foodgasm.

Recognized by chefs, critics and foodies abound, the Michelin-star is a symbol of the pinnacle of culinary excellence. Achieving a one-star rating is already an accomplishment but reaching the mythical three-star rating is an achievement worthy of being put on a pedestal. Chef Takashi Saito of Sushi Saito is one of the few proud members of the three Michelin-starred restaurant club. Located in Tokyo, Sushi Saito is a small traditional eight-seat omakase sushi bar that serves the chef’s choice for lunch and dinner.

In the video above, spend a day in the shoes of the legendary chef and follow as he goes out at the break of dawn to purchase fresh fish from Japan’s famed Tsukiji Fish Market all the way to his “mise en place” preparation and final presentation to the customer. Witness the overwhelming happiness that Saito feels when a fish is up to his expectation and he gets to share it with his customers, and the elegance in which he slices each piece of fish to perfection and his interaction with his apprentices.

If you wish to dine at #26 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2016, a spot heralded by legendary Chef Joël Robuchon as “the best sushi restaurant in the world,” you better start trying to get a reservation immediately as the wait is long and demand is high.
