Ja­panese

There’s no short­age of cheap sushi joints in the city, but most will com­pro­mise on the qual­ity of the fish in or­der to charge less. Maizuru hits the sweet spot with raw seafood ri­val­ing some of the fancier Ja­panese restau­rants in the city for a frac­tion of the price. The lunch set is a steal and has be­come one of our fa­vorite places to get our ni­giri fix, with 12 pieces of the diner’s choice go­ing for $286. You won’t be get­ting the high­est qual­ity of ex­pen­sive in­gre­di­ents like uni here, but for stan­dard cuts such as tuna, sal­mon, scal­lop and roe, there are few places that serve fresher fish. The coun­ter­top seat­ing with your pri­vate sushi chef whip­ping up your lunch set com­pletes the feel of a fine omakase counter for a nom­i­nal fee.

26/F, Jar­dine Cen­ter, 50 Jar­dine’s Bazaar, Cause­way Bay, 3586-3038.
