Hattori Sushi Devil, again
My plate, an order of Ginza. 8 different pieces of sushi.
I know, I've told you before. The best sushi in Stockholm. It's at Hattori Sushi Devil. For sure. And I'm not just saying that because head chef Peter Forsberg happens to be my brother in law - they really *are* the best.
Peter, scooping up my very favorite: squid salad
We eat there regularly, though not as often as I would really like to. They have a very small restaurant with just a few seats, so unless you're planning on takeaway, be prepared to wait for a while or avoid the lunch hour. Everything is made a la minute, which means that yes, it will take longer, but you won't get any boring, dried-out sushi that you won't want to eat anyway. It's well worth it.
Beautiful miso - always included
Unfortunately, no sushi bars in Sweden are allowed to serve alcohol (becuase according to Swedish law, you can only serve alcohol if you have a hot kitchen), so the drinks are limited to water, green tea (free) and Firefly which is a pretty cool drink.
Peter mixes his own flavored soy - there's a ginger, one with shiitake, one with bonito (smoked tuna) and my favorite, a citrusy one that I think has yuzu in it.
The guys are really getting recognition - several papers and magazines have written about them, and they're being asked to cater a lot of big functions. Well, as long as I can get my sushi fix, I'm really happy for them. It's well deserved!
