First stop was Winston Pies for a mini apple pie, which smelled incredible. The pie itself, which was saved for dessert, was excellent, but not quite as heavenly smelling as the shop was! (to be fair, that's an impossible standard to live up to!)
While Shunji's new location is being finished, they've setup a temporary pop-up location just a plaza over from another Michelin 1*, Kato. Super unassuming, not even a sign, almost feels like a secret club to get your sushi.
But the spread remains trademark Shunji, including black throat sea perch (nodoguro). And it's still delicious-- their pop-up location hasn't caused them to lose a step.
Full spread, from top row: toro cut roll, ikura (salmon roe), chutoro, maguro, hirame (halibut), kuro dai (black seabream), kinmedai (golden eye snapper), ishi dai (stone snapper), madai (red snapper), shimaaji (jack mackerel), kanpachi (amberjack), masu (ocean trout), otoro, nodoguro (black throat seaperch), amaebi (live sweet shrimp), bafun uni (Japanese sea urchin).
