Ebisu by Kobos is a sushi restaurant where you can experience the trust relationship between the chef and the diner, known as Omakase. The restaurant is founded by Chef Kobos Cortés, who brings his experience from Japan, where he worked at an Edo-style sushi bar. The restaurant's philosophy is rooted in technique, product, and seasonality, combining Japanese tradition with local seafood to elevate sushi to its highest expression of purity.

This was our second visit here and we keep our personal opinion that this is the best sushi we know of in Spain. Since our last visit, we’ve had some new stuff, and missed some dishes from our last visit, being the most important one, the ankimo, which was one of the stars of our last visit. The shari has in our opinion improved since the last time, and overall we had another fantastic night here, with great nigiris and another great wine pairing. So, some of the favorites of the night were: * Aji & shyoga nigiri (mackerel & ginger). * Tako (octopus). * Chawanmushi with katsuobushi, dashi and eggs. * Sea bream nigiri with hiroshima salt. * Akaza ebi nigiri (scampi). * Kaziki maguro nigiri. * Mama’s sandwich 2.0 with Oscietra Caviar. * Chu toro (semi-fatty tuna) nigiri. * O-toro and uni (fatty tuna and sea urchin) nigiri. * Unagi (fresh water eel)nigiri. The one thing we liked a little better on our last visit was to end with the Futomaki Endo, as a kind of a dessert, but again, we liked every single dish of this visit. And, this remains our favorite unagi on earth! To end this post, our opinion is that the itamae José, will improve more and more on each visit and has the potential to become one of the best sushiyas in Europe over the years, but let the time talk and just observe over the years.

Kabuki

Av. del Pdte. Carmona

Av. del Pdte. Carmona, 2, Tetuán, 28020 Madrid, Spain

This restaurant, Kabuki, offers a unique blend of Japanese and Mediterranean cuisines. Known for its original "Spushi", or Spanish sushi, it presents seafood with a distinct Iberian touch, including fried quail's eggs and juicy Denia prawn head nigiri. The cheesecake mochi is a recommended dessert to end your meal.

The original "Spushi," or Spanish sushi. Think pristine seafood presented with a decidedly Iberian flair, down to perfectly fried quails' eggs and juicy Denia prawn head nigiri. An interesting fusion. The cheesecake mochi is a fabulous ending.

Nanako

C. de Raimundo Lulio

C. de Raimundo Lulio, 24, Chamberí, 28010 Madrid, Spain

Nanako is a unique Japanese restaurant that creatively infuses Latin flavors into its dishes, thanks to its Brazilian owner. The omakase menu, particularly the charred salmon nigiri with burnt onion and the Brazilian style beef robata with farofa, are highly recommended. The ambiance is lively, with seating options near the counter for guests who enjoy watching the culinary action, or at the tall tables in the front part of the restaurant.

A nice surprise in the Chamberí neighborhood Nanako is a Japanese restaurant but it allows itself to play with Latin flavors. Its owner is Brazilian, so expect some of his favorite flavors from home to appear on the menu. The omakase menu (55€) is without a doubt the best option. Try to get a seat near at the counter to see all the action or at any of the tall tables in the front part of the restaurant. Some of the highlights of the menu were the charred salmon nigiri with burnt onion. Or the Brazilian style beef robata with farofa. Loved the tuna tiradito also!

Focused on offering the freshest seasonal seafood and incorporating fresh herbs and vegetables imported from Japan, Sushi Bar Hannah 鮨花 provides an authentic Japanese culinary experience. The restaurant is known for its individual nigiri servings, tempura dishes, and traditional Japanese grilling techniques. Their menu features a Kaiseki option with carefully balanced dishes, a personalized Sushi Omakase selection, and an a la carte choice, catering to diverse preferences.

Japanese restaurant offering Omakase, Kaiseki and a la carte. This is our second visit to this restaurant, and our impression is that the place definitely has improved over the last couple of months. We usually opt for Nigiri Omakase’s in a place like this, but our impression from the last visit is that we preferred the non-nigiri dishes, so this time we opted for a mix between the nigiri omakase and the kaiseki, and we think this is the best option here. Focusing on what we had, some of our favorites were: * Akami, chu-toro, egg yolk and caviar. * Crab, uni, wasabi flowers and tosazu. * Grilled red mullet and sudachi. * Sea bream belly nigiri. * Iwashi nigiri. * Chu-toro nigiri. * Akami nigiri. * Lobster chawanmushi. * O-toro nigiri. * Suzuki and katsuobushi gohan. We loved the first three appetizers, all delicious, and we really liked the light tempura around the red mullet. A very nice meal and we look forward coming back when we go to Madrid again.

Japanese tavern rooted in the flavors of Madrid. Lovely modern and cozy tavern evoking flavors of Japan but going beyond the izakaya offerings by adding flavors from the typical taverns of Madrid. Only Japanese beer is sold, great sake is offered and small tapas are the norm. Amazing katsu sando, calamari sandwich, juicy croquettes and gyozas, as well as fun baos.
