Bold statement for those of you sushi connoisseurs in New York, California or Vancouver, but sorry, when in North America, we are simply on the wrong side of the Pacific. Whatever we can get in the U.S. or Canada, they can do one better in China. Chinese people love many to most things about Japanese culture (with the exception of history and politics) and food techniques from Japan are well respected. Pictured here is one of Shanghai’s finest casual Japanese joints (casual in atmosphere, not in price – the value is well worth it!)…. Do go check out Al’s Single Malt. Where the food AND drink are amazing.
