To achieve the status of a sushi master, specialized training and years of experience are necessary. In Japan, to obtain the title of sushi master, one must undergo a course lasting even several years, covering all the necessary steps to create perfect sushi.

Sushi, or “sour rice” is a traditional Japanese dish and one of the healthiest foods in the world. Restaurants specializing in sushi preparation in Warsaw passionately strive to replicate authentic flavors, while also offering their own unique compositions based on high-quality ingredients.

Youmiko Vegan Sushi

It turns out that sushi doesn’t necessarily have to contain raw fish. Plant-based cuisine can be just as valuable, aromatic, tasty, and… intriguing. Even in Japan, a vegan version of sushi called kyuri, or traditional cucumber maki, was invented. At Youmiko Vegan Sushi, which combines Japanese culinary traditions with Polish creativity, we receive surprising recipes, which often depend on the chef’s inspiration on any given day.

The standard set includes nigiri, cakes, hosomaki, uramaki, futomaki, as well as temari and gunkan. Especially recommended is the Omakase tasting menu, which literally means “leave it to me.” It is a real feast of flavors and culinary techniques of Japanese culinary art, which takes us on a journey through the culture of samurai. For those who are tired of traditional rolls, sushi masters offer the so-called “Scattered sushi” – rice with delicious roll ingredients, including tempura. As for appetizers, traditional miso soup with tofu, edamame, wakame seaweed salad, and Korean kimchi, pickled spicy cabbage, are of course included. In short, it is not only one of the best restaurants serving sushi in Warsaw but certainly one of the most interesting.

Wabu Sushi & Japanese Tapas

When you step into the venue on the ground floor of the Warsaw Spire skyscraper in the heart of Warsaw, you immediately feel the atmosphere inspired by the izakaya philosophy, or “pub-restaurant,” where you can enjoy food, drinks, and conversations for hours. According to this Japanese tradition, dishes are served in tapas style, and the essence of izakaya is to share them with companions.

The interior of Wabu Sushi & Japanese Tapas features dark colors and warm wood, as well as pleasant lighting. Such a combination has a calming effect on guests, almost encouraging meditation. Wabu chefs are enthusiasts who pay attention to every detail, taking care of every grain of rice and meticulously perfecting every element. Sushi masters create unique compositions, faithfully reflecting their individual styles. Their original fish compositions and culinary creations faithfully capture the flavors of the Land of the Rising Sun, with a touch of elegance and a hint of modernity. Fresh fish and seafood imported to order are the pride of the venue, as are the culinary workshops held here under the guidance of true masters.

Art Sushi

This is a place for true connoisseurs of authentic Japanese cuisine. Before choosing a dish, it is worth familiarizing yourself with a glossary of basic names of vegetables served on the menu: oshinko (turnip), shitake (mushrooms), gomo (seaweed), wakame (algae). You can make a good impression if you master this. It is also important to remember the golden rule of eating with chopsticks: sashimi – yes, sushi – no. This may be a surprise, as in Poland chopsticks are often given with sushi right away. However, in Japan, chopsticks are only used for sashimi, and sushi is eaten without them. It’s a true art. And if we’re already experimenting in such an exclusive place, why not try a roll with edible gold? We also recommend caviar.

One of the most traditional accents is Maneki-Neko – a popular symbol of luck in many Asian countries. The figurine depicts a cat with a raised paw. The right paw is supposed to attract money, while the left one invites guests. For 10 years, this mascot has been guarding the restaurant, as it clearly does a good job, as Art Sushi is doing very well.
