Top choice japanese in Avenida Paulista, Jardins & Around

Barely a blip from Paraíso metro station is this outrageously good and authentic sushi hotspot where brothers Robinson and Ken Mizumoto execute an exquisite, daily fresh menu of motherland-worthy raw fish that will leave you rubbing your eyes to verify you haven't traveled to Japan.

The fiercely traditional omakase (tasting menu) nets an extraordinary array of the day's best at the hands of an itamae (a step above sushiman in sushi hierarchy) who will wow you with the delicate and incredibly fresh flavors; while sushi combos – there's one entirely devoted to tuna! – are still pricey but extraordinary value compared with what you'd pay at this quality level in Japan.
