Sushi Millefeuille 2017 Summer Version at Sushi Shokunin Birukawa in Shizuoka City!

Service: shy but extremely attentive and kind
Equipment & Facilities: overall very clean. Excellent washroom. Non-smoking private room possible
Prices: reasonable (that is for true sushi!)
Strong points: Sushi mainly created with local seafood. 3-year old wasabi root exclusively used. Grilled and deep-fried fish, tempura. Excellent list of sake and shochu.

Chef Kenta Birukawa/尾留川健太親方, as a true chef has always loved to be challenged into new ideas.
Every time I visit his restaurant, Sushi Shokunin Birukawa, in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City he knows I will asak for a new “Sushi Millefeuille”, a bit to the surprise of regulars as the order is not written anywhere, be it on the regular menu or specialties of the day!

So when I proposed the name, Summer Version Sushi Millefeuille, that is what he came up with!
Note that the sushi rice is lightly colored as 10% of the rice vinegar used in its making is akazu/red vinegar!

The fish served in aburi style/half grilled, half raw on top is “nodoguro” or “blackthroat seaperch” also known as “akamutsu” in Japan, a seasonal fish of higher quality!
The fish was accompanied with “boiled “shako” or squilla!
Anago/grilled conger eel was also included inside the rice with grilled eggplant and thinly sliced cucumber!

Almost a whole dinner by itself1 Looking forward to the next challenge!

SUSHI-KO-2016-JAN-18

The other day for our first visit at Sushi Ko on Aoba Park Street in Shizuoka City we challenged Chef Kenta Birukawa/尾留川健太さん to create a new Sushi Millefeuille for the Year 2016!
Bear in mind that he only can and may do it and that it does not feature on the menu!

SUSHI-KO-2016-JAN-19

“Aburi Sushi Millefeuille/Seared Sushi Millefeuille”!
The concept was indeed new as he announced beforehand that he would “burn” it, a joke meaning that at least the outside would be seared!

SUSHI-KO-2016-JAN-20

The main part of the millefeuille made of sushi rice was surrounded with thin bands of 1) akami/red lean part of tuna, 2) tachiuo/scabbard or cutlass fish, 3) shake/salmon.

It was topped with pieces of ika/cuttle fish/squid and kinmedai/splendid alfonsino.

The whole was then seared before being decorated with thinly sliced cucumber and presented with pieces of tamagoyaki/Japanese omelet and ikura/salmon roe!

SUSHI-KO-2016-JAN-21

And the interior revealed pieces of kyuuri/cucumber, boiled ebi/prawn, tobiko/flying fish roe, tachiuo/scabbard or cutlass fish, shake/salmon and akami/red lean part of tuna!

What is going to be the next challenge? LOL
