It’s March and spring is just around the corner! This month we’re introducing a new seven-course sushi kaiseki dinner, our seasonal fresh fish represents the end of winter, and we explore traditional Edomae style sushi.

Shiro’s New Sushi Kaiseki Dinner
Seasonal Sake – “Tengumai”
Tengumai is produced by Shata Shuzo in Ishikawa prefecture, Japan. This distinctive Junmai Daiginjo provides noble flavor with its 50% rice polishing ratio. It’s younger than traditional Junmai Daiginjo, which provides extra smoothness and a well-balanced touch of acidity. If you order our Black Cod or Geoduck Butter, then Tengumai is the perfect sake pairing!
Japanese Culture – What is Edomae ?
Sushi using fresh seafood caught near Tokyo Bay is called Edomae, meaning “caught in Edo (currently Tokyo) Bay.” But there’s more meaning behind Edomae than just the location of where the seafood is caught. Read more about traditional Edomae style sushi and how we implement the traditional techniques at Shiro’s!
