    Suehiro

    Unchanged traditional taste of sushi in Kyoto

    Suehiro is a sushi restaurant opened in the early 19th century.  At first they sold cooked dishes but later in the Meiji period (1868-1912), their main business shifted to sushi.  The fact that Suehiro has served sushi for some imperial families attests to its quality.  If they have to choose the top recommendation from their variety of sushi items, it would be Saba-zushi.  Pieces of salted mackerel are topped on vinegar rice and the balance of the mackerel’s saltiness and the rice’s sourness is just perfect.  Surprisingly, there is no recipe of how they prepare sushi.  Since the taste of mackerel changes seasonally, they trust their eyes and taste buds to decide the best balance of condiments for sushi every day.  The photo is of the Mushi-zushi (steamed sushi), which is available from November to the end of March only (1,500 yen).  This hot sushi will warm up your body and heart.
