Sushi Chikara

Sushi Chikara

스시치카라 (Hapjeong Station, Mapo-Gu).

New 7-seat omakase eatery in Hapjeong Station. This place opened up on February 3, 2020. Two seatings for dinner – 6 and 8 PM. The omakase dinner price? Wait for it…………₩60,000.

The menu was excellent and for ₩60,000, it’s so cheap. Great value. Great quantity. Absolutely recommend. Downside is that they only have 7 seats and word has gotten out so it has become popular. They now have a pre-pay policy when making the reservations due to the number of no-shows. Totally understandable. Imagine 1 or 2 people not showing up at a 7-seat counter.

Here is what you get for ₩60,000:

▪️Chawanmushi (Egg Custard)
▪️7 servings of sashimi, appetizer
▪️15 sushi pieces
▪️1 encore sushi (bonus piece)
▪️Udon
▪️Dessert

Chef-Owner Yoon used to work at the Gwanghwamun sushi omakase restaurant – 스시산원 경 (SUSHI SANWON KYUNG)

The chawanmushi – the silky smooth egg custard
광어 – Korean flatflish (Olive flounder)
Uni (sea urchin) wrapped in some fish
Tuna – Otoro
So delicious because of the fat
Clams
Scallop in a seaweed laver
Chef preparing the steamed octopus
Preparing the sushi pieces
The Korean flatfish (광어) sushi. Go to any Japanese omakase in Korea and this is ALWAYS the first sushi piece served.
Same fish as above but from a different angle
Akami tuna piece. Very lean piece of the tuna. Notice no white fatty streaks.
Akagai or Blood Clam
Mackerel maki
Uni (sea urchin) sushi
Anago – Eeel
Dessert
A cheesy and silky smooth custard topped by a raspberry sauce. Delicious. Almost to ask for one more.
