Sushi and Japanese cuisine

Sekaizushi is home to fresh sushi and sashimi dishes only available in Niigata, as well as a full range of authentic local fare.
The owner is known especially for increasing the number of Niigata sushi fans with his “kiwami” sushi menu, a dish that can be enjoyed at over 20 famous sushi shops in Niigata City.

Naturally, the most popular item on the menu is the kiwami set, a 10-piece sushi platter featuring Niigata’s seasonal fish, “toro” (fatty tuna), “uni” (sea urchin roe), “ikura” (salmon roe), and “nodoguro” (blackthroat seaperch), a luxury-grade fish from the Sea of Japan. (Exact contents of each kiwami set will vary by sushi shop.)

One must-try item at Sekaizushi is the “nodoguro aburidon”, an especially popular dish that features a hefty portion of nodoguro (blackthroat seaperch), over a bed of rice. Nodoguro is a luxury fish that boasts amazing flavors when raw, but can also be enjoyed for its aromatic and mouth-watering flavor when flash-seared. For an extra luxurious touch, instead of soy sauce, it’s served with a high-end, natural sea salt made from the clear waters of the Sasagawa Nagare Coastline, a national Natural Monument of Scenic Beauty.

Guests may also enjoy a full selection of Niigata delicacies, including a wide variety of craft sakes to pair and “noppe” (a stew packed with local vegetables with a velvety texture from “satoimo” taro).

    到了新潟就一定不能錯過用在新潟海域出產的南蠻蝦等鮮魚和越光米做成的壽司。聽說不止是當地人,也有許多來自日本各地及海外的觀光客專程前來嚐鮮。
