Theres one big misconception about Sushi, that its Raw. No!
Sashimi is Raw, and Sushi is not necessesarily raw. Anything that has vinegared sticky
rice, regardless if its cooked or raw can be classified as Sushi. There are several
types of sushi we serve at KOBE,
Maki- these are the rolled sushi like California etc.
- Niger Sushi- are hand made sushi with seafood or any other ingredient
on top of the oblong shaped rice.
- Tamari- are hand rolled sushi shaped like cones.
- Gunkan-maki- often called Boat Sushi- these are like nigiri but a strip
of Nori (roasted seaweed) wrapped around the rice like "masago or Ikura" etc.
- Inari sushi- these types are prepared with the fried soy bean curd
(inari) holding the rice and sushi ingredients together.
- Chirashi Sushi- a.k.a Scattered Sushi- the sushi rice is spread on a
"bento" or in a bowl with several types of seafoods scattered on top.
And many more, of course!
-Sashimi-is Raw Seafood-
These are served as slabs of fish about an inch wide, 1.5 inch long and a quarter of an
inch thick. These can be Tuna, Salmon, Yellowtail, Redsnapper, Yellowtail, Octopus and so
on. Mackerel is marinated in Vinegar.. but can be served sashimi style.
Bonido Tataki is pounded, partly seared type of Tuna (Skipjack Tuna) served in special
"pontzu sauce" Customers call it a medium rare steak, they love it and its
-Leery about Raw Fish?-
One main thing you should know is that we serve only Saltwater Seafood for sashimi.
This is due to parasites that freshwater fish carry. Parasites are not present in
saltwater fish because salinity of saltwater kills these kinds of parasites. This is why
in some Sushi Bars, if they are using Freshwater Salmon, they have to cure the fish with
salt and water for a minimum of 36 hrs. This not our case, we only serve Atlantic Salmon.
Did you know that Salmon, Tuna, Yellowtail, Redsnapper and many more are good for your
Yes, its no "Greek" to us (no offense meant to Greeks, I meant
"Secret" actually) that the fats in seafood are good for your heart. They also
nourish your Brain. This is so because of Omega 3- Fatty Acids that these fish carry. Food
for the Brain so they say. The Human Brain consist an astonishing 60% Fats, therefore it
needs a high content of Poly-unsaturated Omega 3 Fatty Acids to make it function properly.
They dont teach this in Sushi Schools unless you ask. As for my case, Its
best to keep you informed. But dont ask me about the Nutritional Values of each
Sushi I make because I really dont know not a single Sushi Chef can tell you anyway.
All we can tell you is.. Its great.. One of the Best youll ever have.. If not
Just ask Chef Dave a.k.a David David for a Surprise Sushi and he will guarantee total
satisfaction or you get free water! Like what the other David usually says "Guarantee
no Refund!" Because he knows that you will totally like it. And by the way, "The
other David" Is the David Ho everyone in Aiken knows, he owns the place! Chef Dave or
David David is just the "caretaker" of the property.
KOBE Sushi Bar is manned by Chef Dave, Chef Roni and Chef Jun
