It opened when Lisbon was pretty much bereft of good Japanese restaurants that went beyond fusion and explored true traditional Japanese cuisine. Nowadays they have plenty of rivals, but they still innovate, thanks to the creativity of Daniel Rente, a student and a scholar of Japanese food, who likes to mix original flavours. Besides the sushi and sashimi menus, there are several hot and cold snacks, such as fish in a Japanese vinegar sauce or the skewered gilded sea bream in a bed of lemongrass.
Time Out tips:
– For a less demanding crowd, Sushicorner is owned by the same proprietors and is a good fast food joint.
– One of the first city restaurants with a gin corner.
– Low-temperature black cod is one of the restaurant's calling cards.
