Über sushi at Sushi B
Located on a tranquil square just steps away from the bustling ‘little Tokyo’ in Paris, Sushi B will please even the most demanding sushi aficionados. Its young chef Masayoshi Hanada can be considered not only one of the best in Paris, but probably in Europe as well. Since the opening in 2015, he got a very well deserved Michelin star and a loyal following of foodies, who compare this tiny sushi shop to the finest ones in Japan.
You have to ring a bell in order to enter this discrete, minimalist spot with only 8 places at the counter. Everything here, from the crystal sake cups to wood and marble finishings breaths understated luxury. It’s the exquisite Masayoshi’s sushi skills though that make the diners return regularly. Before moving to Paris six years ago, he worked in Amsterdam for two years and in his hometown city Fukuoka for ten. He says the ingredients and even water are the major differences between making sushi in Japan and France. Hanada uses only the best local ingredients, such as tuna from Spain or langoustines from Brittany. His most iconic piece will be definitely nigiri with squid, which he chops very finely before serving.
