Manzo Itamae Richmond 万藏板前日本料理 located on Capstan Way, Richmond is the upscale sister restaurant to the original Manzo Izakaya万藏居酒屋 on Alexandra Road since 2001. Manzo Richmond focus is a sophisticated yet cozy environment serving fresh seafood.
Where izakayas focus on small plates to be indulged alongside beer and sakes; itamae 板前 stands for “front of the board” where chefs cook in a larger restaurant. The apprentice (wakiita) must spend years of training before he is worthy to be appointed as an connoisseur (itamae) to stand in front of the cutting board!
As such, Manzo Itamae offers a wide selection of fresh sheet dailies to be served as sashimi or nigiri.
Fans of small tapas dishes do not fret! The popular kushi yaki and robata dishes such as Grilled Pork Toro, Saba Shioyaki, Ika Sugatayaki and Gindara Yuanyaki are still available.
If you fancy some sashimi or maki sushi, the Deluxe Assorted, Lobster (market price) or Chirashi (sashimi rice bowl) and battera (box pressed sushi) makes a great sampling choice. Or if you are interested in more exotic fishes give the following a try:
- Kinme Dai Sashimi (Golden Eyes Seabream) – Very fresh with a melth in your month distinctive sweetness
- Mekajiki Toro Sashimi (Swordfish) – Tender and light.
- Tai Sashimi (Sea Bream) – Sweet
Brought over from the original Manzo Izakaya location, this sushi roll is almost pure sashimi – made with farm salmon sashimi rolled with little rice, chopped scallop and sprinkled with tobiko. It is refreshing and has a lot of bite
