11th meal.
6 otsumami, 11 nigiri.
One better than the other.
I think this is one of the best in town, soon to be super famous. Reservations are already difficult and must be done way out. Fully deserved.

10th meal.

I doubt there are many people, left alone foreigners, who have been to this restaurant 10 times or more. So, now that I have, I’ll stick my head out.
This place serves one of the best otsumami one can get in Tokyo and by extension in the world. Yes, I believe that his overshadow the likes from legends such as Sugita-san and Sawada-san. The only place which in my book is on par is Saito-san. Here I said it! It most likely is going to burn me, but I cannot help.
He served five servings... More

9th meal

Hatou continues to impress. I always was and am a great fan of Kumakiri-san’s otsumami. His nigiri are also excellent and are improving.
The service is impeccable and his sake collections is top notch.

Hatou is a wonderful restaurant. His otsumami being a trained kaiseki chef are outstanding and his nigiri improve every time I have been there.
A wonderful place with an even better hospitality. Now that I have been to so many restaurants of the Ichikawa group I noticed that all of them excel in provide an unbelievable service. There seems to be one doctrine: everybody is responsible for everything. And it works, so when the Taisho himself sees that there is an empty plate or an empty glass, he... More

Kashigiri at Hatou. Due to a cancellation we were the only guests. Great to have time to chat to the Taishō and his apprentice.
I still believe that he is producing some of the best and tastiest otsumami in Tokyo. For example his ayu, fired to perfection so it becomes equally crispy without loosing the required bitterness to make it great.
His nigiri skills are getting better and better., the chu toro and the aji being the stellar pieces of the evening.
Fantastic meal, looking forward to my... More

Uni hand roll
ウニの手巻き

鮨屋で一般的に使われるものよりも薄手の海苔を、炙りたてで用いている。

口の中に入れた瞬間に消えるので、海苔という固体の存在を感じさせず、食べているというより香りのみを味わっているかのよう。

ウニを邪魔せず、引き立て役として存在感を放っているのが素晴らしい。

神楽坂「石かわ」仕込みの料理と東麻布「天本」で修業した握り、というだけで人気になる要素を兼ね備えているが、その高い期待値を上回ってくれる新進気鋭の一軒。

料理全般にも言えることかもしれないが、握りに関しては特に、「美しいものは美味しい」という言葉が当てはまる。写真が全てを物語ってくれる。

Hatou evolves and gets better. His otsumami are already world class but his nigiri are getting better.
A future star in the making.

Second visit at Hatou. The Young chef and his even younger team convince. The otsumami are excellent, the chef changed some of the dishes to give us something different from the last visit.
The nigiris are well formed and the shari good seasoned. Outstanding pieces were the aji, the tori-gai and the ebi.
It is a joy to watch them work, they have fun as a team while being super professional. No details gets overlooked and the need of the guest is Alok ist anticipated.
I had to rebook it. It... More

New bright star on the sushi ceiling in Tokyo. Another restaurant from the Ishikawa group, this 29 year old has taken the sushi diner world by storm.
His store is exquisitely outfitted, with the counter being one piece from Africa and his tableware from renown artists.
Chef Daichi Kumakiri shows his pedigree in forming his nigiris and seasoning of his rice. This can only get better and then it will be really impossible to make a reservation.
