As I am caught thinking about Japanese food I wanted to write about the best Japanese restaurant I have been to in a very long time. This includes London, Europe, the US and splodges of Asia.
However, before turning to the food I want to relate a little anecdote that is truly wonderful. I hadn’t been to Gutlee Sushi for about 2 months as I had moved out of my temporary flat way out in Kennedy Town and now live centrally. However, my old flat was right by Gutlee Sushi so I used to go a lot and always mentioned to the waitress that I wanted to take Jen there when she arrived in Hong Kong.
Straight away, as soon as Jen tried the very first nibble of sashimi, I knew I had won from her face. Its texture, its freshness, its just… luxuriant impeccability. You knew you were in a special restaurant as it rolled around your mouth. Jen started muttering about this being better than her favourite place in San Francisco. Because it is.
- Price – 300 to 600hkd a head (£25 to 50)
- G/F, No.24 Wing Shing Building, Davis Street, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong (2818 1923)
(EDIT – I’ve had a couple of people mention that they’ve had not great meals at Gutlee recently which leads me to think they may have changed chef? I hope not)
