Get ready, there’s a new sushi restaurant coming to town, and this one’s kind of a big deal. With three Michelin stars in Tokyo, and currently placed at number 26 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants List, Sushi Saito is set to open next month in the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong. At the helm of the restaurant is Chef Takashi Saito, who is known for his precise attention to detail, and ability to create expert sushi that balances temperature, texture and flavour. For those who worry that the Hong Kong export may not match up to the original, we’ve been assured that from the soy sauce, to the rice, and even Chef Saito’s signature mild red vinegar, the ingredients will be identical to what is served in Tokyo!
