Sushi Karashima

With a dedicated commitment to "dashi," ingredients and food producers.

"Sushi Karashima" is located in Akasaka, some distance away from the downtown area of Fukuoka / Hakata. The young owner-chef, Hiroshi Karashima, set his mind on a career as an expert sushi chef from an early age, and set out on his training in the art of Japanese cuisine. He spent a long period studying at "Kappo Sakuichi" in Osaka and "Kimoto" in Kobe, before moving to Fukuoka "Yasukichi" to continue his training. Then in 2018, he opened his own restaurant.

His cuisine reflects the regional cooking styles of Kyushu. He visits local production areas and fishing ports as much as he can, selecting ingredients that reflect the principles and dedication to their trade of the people who produce them. Sometimes he even gets on a boat and goes out to sea with the fishermen, talking to them and building up a bond of trust with the producers. Another feature of his cooking is his use of "dashi "(soup stock), a key aspect of Japanese cooking that he has mastered over many years. This is evident in the "chawanmushi" (Japanese Steamed Egg Custard) that he always serves at the start of a meal. He uses Yumuta Farm eggs laid by free-range chickens, fed with a home-made animal feed of fermented vegetables and grass, and a dashi stock prepared specially for the dish, made with seasonal fish bones, to create a pale, clean tasting, masterpiece of flavors. This specialty dish, with the ingredients, the producers and the stock all held in equal reverence, epitomizes the distinctive approach of "Sushi Karashima". The omakase menu is served gradually, each small portion evoking the spirit of the season, a delectable arrangement of sushi for you to enjoy. A charcoal burner is set out behind the counter, next to the chef. He uses this to demonstrate the fine art of "grilling and searing". The aromas and sounds of the food as it cooks form an integral part of this unique live spectacle of a master chef at work.

Chef Karashima chose this location. "I just feel so good here," he says. The interior of the restaurant is themed in black and white and features an 8-seat L-shaped counter, made with a single gleaming block of Yoshino cypress. This is the surface on which the sushi is served, illuminated by spotlights directly above, adjusted to highlight each dish as it is placed on the counter.

"Sushi Karashima" specializes in serving Japanese sake carefully selected from all over Japan, but with a focus on Kyushu, as well as wine, champagne, shochu, and other drinks. The customers who sample the sushi here are treated as colleagues and companions, with the food and drink and the tableware it is served with all combining to create a memorable experience.

    主人と、とても楽しい時間を過ごすことが出来ました。 唐島のご主人の握るお鮨は美しく美味しく、また、ご主人の気遣いが行き届いています。 まだオープン間もない店内は、程よい緊張感を与えつつ快適で居心地の良い空間に仕上がっています。 台風が相次いて九州近海を通過したので仕入れが大変だったとのことですが、工夫を凝らしたお料理・お鮨を堪能しました。 ご主人のお父様がサービスを担当していらして、親子とは最後まで気づきませんでしたが、そういわれれば他人では出せない雰囲気が良い感じでした。 お酒のラインナップが充実しており、特筆すべき点です。ビールは小瓶が7社、シャンパンも5種類、日本酒はその時のおすすめが多数用意してあります。 4組のお客様の3組が私たちも含めシャンパンをオーダーされたので、ご主人が盛り付けや・鮨を握る合間にサーブされており、今後お父様が担当される用改善されるとより良いと思います。 若いご主人の今後のご活躍が楽しみです。 またお邪魔させていただきたいと思います。 有難うございました。
