• 5th Anniversary Omakase Menu at Sushi Kappo Tamura 07.22.15

    Anniversary 4

    We admit it has been hard to eat through some of this heat, but with the cooler weather (anything below 90 degrees!), delicious dinners, bountiful brunches and special events have us swooning again.

    The 5th anniversary menu at Sushi Kappo Tamura is one of those menus that is making us hungry again! For another 10 days, through July, Chef Taichi Kitamura is offering a beautiful 5-course menu in honor of the restaurants 5th anniversary. This is the restaurant that has collected some impressive accolades, from Travel + Leisure “Best Sushi Restaurant in the U.S.” to Bon Appetit “Best 10 New Japanese Restaurants in the U.S.” and even local awards including Seattle Magazine “Best Sushi Restaurant.” Needless to say, you know it’s going to impress!

    The inspiration for the special menu comes from serving some of the best, freshest seafood that Chef Taichi can get his hands on. The spotlight of the 5th anniversary omakase menu are the two courses of nigiri, which profile the local summer catches of albacore toro, grilled black cod belly, silver smelt, and geoduck, among others. (You can also read Taichi’s recent interview with the BBC about geoduck!)

    The full menu features items from local farms, local waters and the restaurant’s rooftop garden. Enjoy the special 5-course anniversary menu for just $55 for the rest of July! You can also pair the anniversary menu with a special sake pairing.

    1st course – Shigoku oysters on the half shell, chum salmon roe and momiji ponzu.

    2nd course – Summer appetizer trio: Jidori tamago tofu and uni, mozuku in tozazu, rooftop scallion and seas scallop in mustard sumiso.

    3rd course – 5 pieces of prime nigiri of the day

    4th course – 4 pieces of prime nigiri and a roll of the day

    5th course – dessert of choice

    What better way for a chef to celebrate seven years of making it in the highly competitive restaurant world then by featuring two of her favorite things – BBQ and bourbon!

She’s also opened two more restaurants as well!
