Unconventional sushi chefs

Unconventional sushi chefs

Kerry-Anne recently bought a two-for-the-price-of-one Wakame sushi voucher from Twangoo, and graciously invited me to tag along to enjoy a sushi platter. Wakame's one of our favoured restaurants in Cape Town (Mouille Point, to be exact) so we were bound to enjoy the delectable treats prepared by what, we assumed, must be the best Japanese chefs in the country.

However, what I discovered was that the sushi chefs weren't Japanese at all. Even though the sushi was cut to precision, kept its form impeccably (even after being manhandled by my chopsticks), and tasted exquisite - it turns out that they were crafted by the very-black-and-decidely-not-Japanese gentlemen on the right of this photo!

Congrats to Marius for, in my last post, guessing correctly that the lights were from Wakame. :)

    At least my memory is still intact at my ripe old age :) .. Have to agree with you about the sushi Paul. Was some of the best sushi I have every had, and was also a perfect day and sitting outside on the balcony was just perfect.

    As you know we’re not lovers of sushi but would most certainly put Wakame at the top of our list of our most favourite place to visit for drink, eating and relaxing when in Cape Town – keep it going for us until we get there – soon!!

    I’ve never been at Wakame, but I was three o four times at Willoughby in Waterfront. Somebody told me is the best fish (sushi and non sushi)in town and I’ve enjoyed and appreciated all the dishes. Is Wakame better?
    Do they serve strictly only fish? My friend is alergic to fish and…. it is a big problem…. for me!!!!

    Now I’ve never been to Willoughby Cristina, but I’ve also heard that it’s the best.

    Wakame is pretty good hey, and they sell a lovely array of tapas, so your friend should find something yummy to munch on. :)

    Derrylg, Kerry-Anne’s bought so many vouchers from Twangoo that we’ll first have to work our way through those. Enjoy Wakame though! :)
