This is the 3rd of 3 series. If you'd like to read the previous 2 articles, go to: Part 1 - Nijiya Market Part 2 - Marukai ***** By far, what I think to be the best "retail" store to buy fish for your sushi is Tokyo Fish Market in Berkeley. If you've never been there, I highly, highly recommend going there, at least once. The reason I think the store is the best place to get sushi fish is that: Variety of fish they carry (over 100 different varieties of fish) You can ask them
Q: How were your sushi rolls?

Kazutoshi Hirata is one of the few Freelance Sushi Chefs in San Francisco Bay Area. For the past twenty years, he has worked for many top San Francisco Sushi Restaurants like Ozumo and Yoshi’s. Now at 65, Mr. Hirata is still actively working as a Sushi Chef, as well as connecting Japan and the U.S. through food. I had a chance to talk to him about his unique experience.

Part 1: Nijiya Market
If you live in the City (San Francisco, that is), the best retail place for you to get Sushi & Sashimi fish is Nijiya Market in Japan Town, located on Sutter and Webster, just under the bridge in Japan Town Mall.
The store is rather small, with narrow aisles compared to other supermarket chains like Safeway and Wholefoods, and the entire store is packed with Japanese groceries. You can get pretty much everything you need to make Sushi at home.
Our next scheduled public sushi class is on Saturday, December 13, 2014 in San Francisco. The class is already sold out - Thank you for all the people who registered. Looking forward to rolling with you all! To register to 2015 classes (you can purchase a ticket as a gift), please click here. #SushiClasses #SanFrancisco
All good things must come to an end – well, almost, until next year.
It looks like we’re approaching the end of local king salmon season, switching to coho and steelhead from Oregon, some king salmon from Alaska.
Here is an email from our fish supplier, Monterey Fish Market for the sustainable fish market update.
California kings- eight days of fishing left- we have just a few kings in the house but we expect to see a push of fish next week.

What I love about Song Tea & Ceramics is simplicity.
Just like Sushi is made up of sushi rice and fish (mostly fish, and lots of vegetables, too!), the shop is about tea leaf and hot water.
Peter, the owner of Song Tea & Ceramics has done a beautiful job decorating the store (he told me he did most of the work himself), arranging such eye pleasing tea cups, accessories and ornaments to create a warm, comfortable and inviting environment for the enjoyment tea.
Each time I teach a class, the dynamics are different.
People are different; ingredients are different, just like the daily routine a Sushi Chef would go through, making rice, cutting vegetables, filleting a fish, curing Saba, making Tamago.
That is what makes each event unique, interesting and exciting.
There was, something special in the air, I should say about this class.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the class, and as a result, I found myself having a very good time.

San Francisco, CA 94111 No other dish seems to capture the heart of Japanese people like ramen. There are many TV shows, magazines, and blogs dedicated to ramen. According to one statistic, some 3,000 ramen shops are opening and closing every year in Japan.
I think ramen to Japanese is pizza to Americans. Just like the simple combination of crust, sauce, and cheese in pizza, soup and the style of noodles (how thick they
