Seattle, WA 98103
Seattle Weekly's Description
Fremont's Chiso does that one thing that most sushi bars seem to find most daunting: It excels at the basics: perfectly cooked rice, perfectly sliced fish, an evenly wrapped strip of nori and perfect, cloudy bowls of miso soup. From there, the kitchen branches out into more complex presentations. The ippin menu is Japanese small plates, and can be anything from deep-fried shrimp heads to a mixed-green salad topped with crunchy salmon skin, a plain bowl of edamame or plate of yakitori to a composed dish of barely-seared duck breast. No matter the style, everything at Chiso seems crafted with the same careful attention to detail.
Tips from foursquare
This sushi restaurant in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle is understated. I can never get enough of the Kasu Black Cod and the chawan Mushi. -Maria Hines, Top Chef
Voted Best Japanese Small Plates in Best of Seattle 2010! Try the truly excellent duck-breast sansho yaki, served de!lightfully rare and fanned through a puddle of savory broth. Delicious!
Have a seat at the sushi bar and ask Hiro or Luke for omakase dinner. This is salmon seared with a special pepper sauce. Not sure how else to order it:)
Go to Chiso Sushi and order anything Albacore and lots of it. Be sure to ask if they have marinated Albacore that day.
Order the Omakazi dinner. Hiro is a fantastic chef and will not disappoint . Best fish in the city.
