There is No Spoon

Ever wondered about how a traditional Japanese diner would consume soup? When you dine at our Bellevue sushi restaurant, try embracing the full cultural experience by taking your soup the Japanese way!

The fact is that Japan spent a lot of its time developing its culinary tradition without the use of spoons. To this day, this western instrument remains uncommon at the Japanese dinner table.

Soups with large, solid objects will be guided towards the mouth with the chopsticks. And don’t be afraid to slurp!
