TakaHisa has introduced Japanese salmon to its refined menu.  Japanese salmon stands apart from other varieties due to its lusciously fatty texture and notably heightened flavour. Chef Takashi, an esteemed Sushi Master, scrupulously handpicks only the finest wild Japanese salmon to create exquisite sushi creations at TakaHisa. Procuring top-quality Japanese salmon is no small feat, as it necessitates navigating the intricacies of the renowned Toyosu seafood market. Its limited availability and higher price further contribute to its exclusivity.
