Gastronomy  This is how the best sushi in the world looks like... in Tokyo

What makes a good sushi restaurant great? Excellent fish and seafood? Chef’s experience, skills and obsession with consistency? Takashi Saito seems to correspond all these criteria, but it’s much more than that. Saito-san hits the perfect gustative balance in each morsel he produces, taste and texture wise. Joel Robuchon called Sushi Saito “the best sushi restaurant in the world”, Michelin gave it 3 stars and Tabelog.com users voted it the best in Tokyo. What else?…  This year Sushi Saito has moved to a new location in Roppongi Ark Hills, but the counter restaurant is still pocket size and still very hard to book. I’ve blogged about Sushi Saito 3 years ago, so this time I am posting pictures only.

Bonjour! I am Aiste. A few years ago, I used to be what is commonly called a “top fashion model”, working in Paris, New York or London for major international brands and designers. It’s a known fact: top models don’t eat, do they? Well, I did! I loved to eat, and still do! I’m passionate about good food and fine cuisine, and love to travel around in quest of great restaurants, gourmet landmarks and gastronomical trends. I also have a camera grafted on my left hand, and can’t help taking and sharing pictures of my best food discoveries! Yes, I’m what you could call an enthusiastic world “food-trotter”. And I would like you, dear readers, to be my first-class travelling companions...
