€Data
Aoki is the sort of
casual sushi shop
where you can relax
with a few drinks
and some delectable
small dishes before
moving onto your
sushi. The chefs
behind the counter
prepare both tradi-
tional nigiri and
more experimental
forms, which are fun
to explore if you're
in an adventurous
mood.

Seasonal vegetable
dishes are a big
part of Aoki's menu,
and they even employ
a vegetable sommeli-
er. On a recent
visit we enjoyed
some stunningly
fresh mountain-vege-
table dishes, fol-
lowed by a selection
of vegetable nigiri-
zushi, which fea-
tured heirloom vege-
tables from Kyoto.
Other unexpected
sushi variations
include lightly
charred fish topped
with cheese, and a
surprisingly tasty
camembert-cheese
sushi roll.

Another house spe-
cialty is foie gras
- served broiled on
skewers, as the main
ingredient in chaw-
anmushi (egg cus-
tard), and as quite
delectable foie gras
sushi. Of course
being a sushi joint
Aoki offers a nice
sashimi selection -
the daily moriawase
is always a good
bet, as is the as-
sortment of three
different cuts of
tuna.

At lunchtime there's
a luxurious 1.5-
person platter
(Y1890) which pro-
vides a big selec-
tion of nigiri along
with soup, salad and
chawan mushi. Budget
around Y4000-8000 at
dinnertime, Y1000-
2000 for lunch. Open
all afternoon on
weekends.
