This is the first restaurant I ate at after being cooped up at home for a good week and a half nursing my flu/not being able to taste anything.
Shiku sushi has happy hour during lunch time on saturday!
3) The best yakitori chicken we’ve had in seattle so far. Literally. Best charred flavour, extremely tender thigh meat. 5 stars. It’s the type that is doused liberally in yakitori sauce though, not the dry shio type.
5) Some white fish nigiri, can’t remember the fish. We ordered this because the waitress conveyed our order to the sushi chef for him to pass the order on to the kitchen (you know how it is in japanese restaurants where the sushi bar is the first line of defence) and he boomed “NO SUSHI???” (not directed at me, but it’s a small space so I could hear everything he said) I don’t eat sushi, and LZ dropped me off at Shiku to order first while he hunted for parking. Once he arrived in the restaurant I immediately shoved the sushi/sashimi menu at him and told him to order something. My need for approval from random strangers is appalling even to myself. No idea how it tasted cause LZ ate it all. He said it wasn’t very special.
All in all, a pretty good place I think that I would definitely visit again if I didn’t have so many other restaurants to try in Seattle.
