The true taste of sushi
largely depends on one’s own understanding of sushi and the customs behind it.
But in most cases you never have a chance to learn these customs at fine sushi restaurants, as it is considered to be a sophistication acquired on one’s own.
Moreover, sushi chefs are focused on creating and pursuing their craft, rather than teaching it to their customers.
Unless you know the seasonality, availability, and other intricacies working behind your dish, sushi is little more than a delicious meal with a mysterious story behind it.
At the same time, there are very few English speakers in Japan who have a deep knowledge and appreciation for the sushi world – and thus there are few people who can communicate the wonder behind this delicious meal to English-speaking travelers and fans in Tokyo.
This is why Sushi Mafia was founded. We are an organization of 1. globally open minded sushi chefs with decades of experience, 2. dedicated English-speaking interpreters who understand the sushi industry and 3. wholesale fish traders with experience from the Tsukiji era.
Combining these 3 values together, we made it possible to bring the true value of sushi to everyone.
Through our services, you can make your sushi much tastier while understanding the deepness of the sushi world.
