Fodor's Hawaii 2014
Sushi Sasabune Review
Be sure to get a seat at the counter (tables are for plebes) and prepare for an unforgettable sushi experience—if you behave. Part of a chainlet with locations in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and New York, this is the home of Seiji Kumagawa—Honolulu's sushi nazi. The way to go is the omakase-style (oh-mah-ka-say, roughly, "trust me"), letting the chef send out his choices of the highest-grade sea creatures for the night. The dishes are served with instructions: "Please, no shoyu on this one." "One piece, one bite." People who defy Kumagawa and go ahead and dip their nigiri in shoyu anyway have been kicked out of the restaurant mid-meal. The parade of dishes always includes the signature California baby squid stuffed with Louisiana crab. A caution: the courses come rapidly until you cry uncle. You pay by the course, which is generally two pieces of sushi or six to eight slices of sashimi, and they can add up fast. The final price depends on how far you can go.
