Good sushi from Kushiro’s is their speciality!

This shop is filled with excellent sushi! Some of the most popular are their North Konsen mackerel and pike. An unusual item they serve is the whale that Kushiro fishermen are allowed to catch for “research.” It has a mellow taste, and is considered a gourmet specialty. You can eat whale sushi throughout the year, but many say it is best in March and September.

“Mountain wasabi” is spicy!

To draw out the flavor of this fresh Hokkaido seafood we recommend the “mountain wasabi.”
It has a soothing aroma and tasted like a spicy horseradish. The mountain squid with wasabi and sautéed squid are popular dishes! Also popular are their 3 kinds of tuna, salmon and shrimp. You can enjoy many kinds of sushi in their “Kushiro Bruce Lee” special set.

Their sushi is very popular!

Today there are many types of sushi competing to be called “the best.” Many of the shops will compete at sushi festivals. Just hearing the name of some of the sushi items attract attention. Names like “flaming Dragon roll”, “tunnel of the cabbage” and the “Mohican role” are interesting.
However, the “crab seafood handroll” is the most popular. The name is simple, but it has 10 ingredients including salmon, shrimp, six types of tuna, avocado, egg, and crab.

Their side menu is full of original dishes!

Their menu includes hand-made steamed pudding that contains plenty of egg yolks and milk. They make it using chocolate and Buri brand milk produced in Betsukai town, also called the “Kingdom of milk.” Also popular is their fried pumpkin using the Tokachi pumpkin.”

Repeat customers are appreciated!

Using Hokkaido ingredients is the emphasis in creating many of their sushi items and side dishes! “It is very rewarding to see people return again and again” said the manager. Please come and enjoy their delicious sushi!
