You remember Carl Ishizaki, right? Described by Vice Munchies last time he joined us in London as a “sushi Jedi”, the softly-spoken, half-Swedish, half- Japanese chef is the creative force behind Stockholm favourite Sushi Sho and its daily-changing omakase menus of tsumami (‘drinking snacks’) and nigiri.
The twelve-seater hole-in-the-wall has a Michelin star and one of the Swedish capital’s most enviable sake cellars but don’t expect hushed tones or any reverent bowing. Sushi Sho’s charm is its laid-back, unpretentious vibes and its soundtrack of 80s bangers. That and it’s gloriously fresh seafood and impeccable flavour combinations. Think ‘Soy Cured Egg Yolk, Okra, Toasted Rice, Octopus and Abalone’ or ‘Seared Langoustine brushed with Sake and Soy’.
From bone fide legends to the superstars of tomorrow, each week we welcome a new chef into the Carousel family.
