For the new establishment, Chef Masada Rei has entrusted two of his well-established disciples, Koguchi Shiro and Ishida Kazuhiro with the task of being the resident chefs. Chef Koguchi Shiro is from Fukuoka, Japan, and is fluent in Chinese. He believes that the essence and personality of sushi lies in the acidity and hardness of its rice. When you put good Shari (sushi rice) into your mouth, it will stimulate and bring out all the hidden flavors of the fish. Chef Ishida Kazuhiro, who has previously worked at Ginza Kyubey, one of the three benchmarks in Japanese sushi industry, hopes that through his extensive sushi experience, he is able to present authentic delicacies through a combination of natural and man-made flavors using careful and thoughtful ingredient selection, rice cooking excellence, and exquisite handgrip and rice ball molding skills.

In order to highlight the vibrant taste of the sushi, the two chefs pay special attention to the temperature change of each sushi and the cooking method of fish ingredients to ensure that each dish is consistent and possesses endless aftertaste. In addition, the menu will be supplemented by various wines and dishes according to the season. The chef will also select a dozen different types of sake according to the characteristics of the dishes and style of the sushi. New wines and styles will also be recommended each day by the chef.

Shoku-tei Sushi also follows the spirit of excellence in the selection of their utensils. The team personally visited many different ceramic markets, galleries, antique markets in Tokyo and Kyoto, and carefully chose works by famous artists such as Suda Seika and Okamoto Sakurei. Unique glassware was also selected, from the classic “Edo Kiriko” to the “Satsuma Kiriko” with characteristics of southern Kagoshimato the modern Kimura Glass, all of which highlight the exceptional skills of Japanese craftsmen. The combination of these carefully selected utensils, together with the dishes and fine wine, provide perfect synergy in creating the ultimate dining experience which is also a core mission of Shoku-tei Sushi.

 

The restaurant has 10 seats at the sushi counter and 3 private rooms, totaling a maximum of 22 seats available. The aesthetic design was created by a new team called “Nature Times Art Design”. Its design concept comes from Su Dongpo’s evaluation of TaoYuanming’s poetry “The reason why we value the dry and bland is that, if the outside is sere, the inside will be lush”. The unique design creates a relaxing and smooth environment with tranquil atmosphere. The entrance is extended by traditional water features mixed with water, stone and flower landscaping. The main dining area is oriental focused and makes use of 100-year-old Japanese cypress, more than eight-meter-long silk lanterns and straw textured walls.
