Sushimama

 

  • MICHELIN GUIDE 2023

Japanese minimalism and scrupulousness

Sushimama is part of the Japanese culture in the centre of Ljubljana.

The minimalist restaurant calms the liveliness of the streets.

Because of its compactness and pleasant dimness, the ambience feels intimate. The massive wood, heavy square chairs, and ascetic equipment show that this is a higher class restaurant.

The kitchen is open, making cooking a show for the guests. It is interesting to watch Japanese chefs skilfully chopping, topping, and shaping sushi, sashimi, and other rolls of the Japanese gastronomic culture.

Sushi is the centre of the cuisine run by chef Hiroki Ishikawa, while other dishes are more like side dishes. Superb side dishes. The extensive menu provides the best from Japan – from soups to numerous gentle rice dishes and dishes with noodles, and of course, sushi of all types and shapes.

The range of the alcohol drinks is no less impressive. You can choose from a wide range of wine labels, almost 40 whiskies, and Japanese sakes.

From rice rolls to wagyu beef

Sushimama is known particularly for its sushi and sashimi rolls with tuna, scorpionfish, sweet shrimp, bonito, scallop, sea bass, salmon, octopus, eel, mackerel, and other types of fish and seafood.

You will get the best miso soup with tofu or crab, and excellent wagyu steak ‘kobe style’ served on a hot stone.

Meet the chef

Master of rice rolls

Hiroki Ishikawa masters the art of making authentic Japanese sushi.

It is interesting to watch a true master at work preparing sushi and other dishes from which he entices mild and gentle Japanese flavours. Behind a large counter, he skilfully chops, cuts, rolls, shapes, and introduces the elements of discreet showcooking.

Sushimama with chef Ishikawa received the Michelin Guide Award in 2020, 2021 and 2022, which is an award for fresh ingredients and a meticulously prepared good meal.
