Minashima , At the heart of the omakase offering from sushi master Koichi Minamishima lies not only 25 years of experience, but also an increasingly rare culinary art form.
Tucked down a one-way street in Richmond is Minamishima, the most intimate Japanese dining experience in Melbourne. Omakase involves placing faith in the integrity of the chef. There is no a la carte menu; this is a journey through a progression of courses with the utmost focus on texture, balance and appearance – as decided by the chef.
Local ingredients arrive daily from boutique farmers and visits to seafood markets. Chef Minamishima not only showcases the best of Australia, but also that of Japan, seasonally importing fresh seafood from Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market such as toro, kinki and sea eel, as well as shellfish like bafun uni from an island near Hokkaido and geoduck and Japanese cockle from his home in Aichi. Each piece of sushi is created so that the inherent characteristics of the key ingredient shine.
Melbourne's best sushi. It's a big call. But after encountering Minamishima, it's one we're prepared to make.
