Japanese Market 79th St Causeway North Bay Village

Some of the best sushi Ive had in town, the sushi chef has some very creative custom rolls. Captain Tuna was out of this world. Prices are affordable, I highly recommend this place to anyone who likes sushi.

Is it actually a market, too? That sounds really interesting, if so. Do they sell any unusual products?

I wouldn't say unusual, more like specifically Japanese. It's actually more of a market than a restaurant.

That one is pretty good but the only true one-stop Asian market that I've found in South Florida is PK in North Miami. Only place where my wife can find all if the bizarre ingredients that she needs in one place.

Try the bubble tea cafe next door if you ever check it out. Bubble tea is one of those bizarre Asian things that you see evidenced in the curiosities in Asian markets. It's what those really huge drinking straws are for. The "bubbles" are tapiocas. You don't see it much in the US and I'm assuming that's because of the choking risk from sucking blueberry-sized tapiocas through a drinking straw.

Thats cool, but I dont go there for the market, I go there for the sushi counter, which is really the main draw there. The sushi chef is quite renown in Miami, has won several local awards, etc. I like his sushi cause its not over-caked with so much rice and he has some really cool original rolls.

Agree with Mattivi.

I've probably been here more than 50 times. The bags of dried fish with crackers are really delicious.

As for the sushi bar, here's a little story:

One day, I was in the mood for something special. I sat down at the sushi bar and made a request to the visiting sushi chef (who was standing next to the owner)...

"Omakase onegaishimasu!"

Their eyes widened and they looked at each other like this:

Image

After they both questioned me to confirm that omakase was indeed what I wanted, the surprised look on the visiting chef's face turned into a big smile and his excitement was noticable in his sushi preparation.

Image

He probably hadn't received too many requests for omakase in America. I had cuts of fish (and some kind of large, shrimp-looking crustacean in its shell) I didn't even know existed. Completely worth the $55.00 - $60.00 it cost me. The cost will depend on how many pieces of sushi you want to eat. I ate until I couldn't eat anymore.

Small warning: The miso soup is not homemade. They prepare it from the miso soup packets that they sell in the store.

I love Japanese Market and yes Omakase is not something you would normally hear in USA , but its actually available in a few places like NOBU and NAOE (although hella more expensive). I had no idea you could do it at Japanese Market will have to try that some time.
