Chef Shinya was amazing! He was well prepared with everything, from the instructions and the homey space to the food prep beforehand. He was also extremely knowledgeable - I learned so much! He was also very easy to chat with about finding good sushi around the area. My only request is that there be chairs available to sit in during the teaching portion.
