Malaga「マラガ」: The Sushi Bar「寿司屋」

sushi bar malaga

Sushi Bar. In Europe. It just reminded me so much of Sushi Planet and that pink-silver-white-lacquered combo that is gayer than Ru Paul - I don't care, I love it.

There are no words to describe feeling of spotting my 2 favorite items of Akki Sushi: Ika-Nori Salad (seaweed with squid) & Goma-Wakame (seaweed with sesame) in this place. Akki... It's my favorite spot (and the closest home) in Stockholm. We used to pick take-away and enjoy at home (as it's super tiny) or under the sun, when the weather was nice.

They just made me feel... Well... Home.

Even though these items were never spotted during nearly 3 years in Japan, I must say that the chef seems to be Japanese (next time, I'll try to talk with him) basically because of his calm yet honorable look, as well as those knives waiting to slice fine items like eel (unagi) which are not common in average sushi spots in Europe.

These knives are known as deba bōchō「出刃包丁」(the thick ones) and yanagi ba「柳刃」which is the longest. These are designed to cut fish and angled only in one side like all pre-War knives were in Japan. Ironically, these knives are mostly designed to cater right-handed chefs, meaning that if you are different (i.e. left-handed) it will be cumbersome to find one for you.

Anyway. It was a nice lunch, with the plus of watching the Palm Sunday parade from the table.
Nice spot, convenient for those touring the city center.
