We went there for the 6+ course "sake dinner". The dinner was a joint presentation and pairing of Chef Taichi's creations with a variety of wonderful authentic boutique sakes from the Tsukinowa Brewery. The Brew Master Hiroko presented, and Taichi cooked. Definitely a heavenly experience. Each sake pairing, from the Kumamoto oysters, to the duck breast and matsutake mushrooms, followed by an always excellent selection of assorted sushi and the dessert, was perfectly tuned and harmonized. The service was impeccable. We left with a feeling of great satisfaction, and will definitely return to this wonderful place.
What a treat.
Tucked away above Chiso is this hidden gem which is open by reservation only. The sushi bar seats 8 or 10 people and it's truly a unqiue experience. The meal is omakase so you basically eat whatever the chef would like to serve that evening. There is so much food you won't be able to eat everything. The sashimi and sushi were extremely fresh and delicous. We even got to try japanese kobe beef. The experience is very intimate because of the limited number of guests and being served by the Chef.
Beautifully subltle, and the highest quality products! Omakase!.
If being able to enter only upon making a reservation (whetther for two or ten of your friends), eating only the freshest products (such as true Japanese Unagei, flown in that day, filleted, and prepared traditionally by both steaming and grilling, oh that delicate, creamy mouth feel!), being personally served only what the very talented Chef Taichi Kitamura has selected (a translucent broth perfuming both the forest and sea over it's hand made ceramic bowl's rim, paper thin porccini slices float over a bite size piece of red snapper that will be perfectly poached by the time it hits the mohagany bar top in front of you), gets your mouth wet, then Kappo in Fremont is a must eat! Omakase!!!
