    Straight up seen every sushi video on multiple channels. This gentleman may not have any stars for his restaurant and I dig that. He's changing the game and being adaptive, creating new ways to bring home flavors here but not in a traditional way such as flying fish from Japan to Hawaii. He also knows his target audience and makes adjustments as necessary so he can still accommodate his guest without ceiling line prices and not sacrificing quality. This is definitely my favorite
