we do Delivery too.

I started my carrier from working at french restaurant and
I work as french cook for 8years.
8years ago, I took after my father's restaurant.

it is a big defference between french and japanese sushi
so especialy first 3years was very tough(still now though:)times.

now I'll be able to offer sushi and French cuisine at my shop.
I think this is a time for me to make my own style food,so
I must do my best,more!

my father's knifes

When I finish my work, I sharpen a kitchen knife with a whetstone every night.
This knives called [yanagiba]. this is made of steel, so it is easy to be rusted and cannot miss everyday care.
However, it is sharp very well!

The picture above is my kitchen knife. And my father's kitchen knife is below. as you can see, my father's knife is looks changed because of he used this more than 30 years. He also sharpend everyday.
My Father went to heaven eight years ago but This knife is an treasure reminding of father'work.
