Homeakase Highlight: KISSAKI birthday surprise!
Kissaki is one of the newer players in the omakase game, having opened fairly recently before COVID-19 forced major changes upon NYC restaurants. Despite this potential setback, Kissaki has gone above and beyond in adapting to these changes and has leveraged their circumstances not only to improve their own business, but to give back to the healthcare community in these unprecedented times as well.

Sushi Soulmates Review: Excellent
We've ordered Kissaki for homeakase twice now - once on the first night they offered takeout, and again recently for Josh's birthday. To be able to have top quality sushi delivered right to our front door has been such a treat - even their packaging is sleek and aesthetically pleasing. The offerings inside that packaging are fresh, creative, and consistently delicious. They offer great value with various omakase price points, chirashi bowls, maki rolls, and nigiri a la carte.
Beyond our personal satisfaction ordering from Kissaki, we've been super impressed with their innovation and creativity when faced with the challenges a pandemic presents. Not only did they manage to open two new locations since the virus hit New York City, they've even employed the use of robots to help keep orders flowing fast. And most impressive of all, they've been giving back to the healthcare communities hit hard by the coronavirus, delivering free sushi lunch boxes offering a welcomed reprieve from pizza and sandwiches.
Menu recommendations include any size omakase for the best variety of seasonal fresh fish flown directly from Japan, and the Ebi-Hamachi roll filled with shrimp tempura, hamachi, avocado, cucumber, cilantro, and jalapeño. If you're in the mood to splurge, it doesn't get more decadent than Kissaki's black caviar and Hokkaido uni add-ons. And to round out your meal, do not sleep on Taste Crème's variety of cake flavors that pair perfectly with omakase; Match Red Bean & Dulce De Leche are our favorites. With Kissaki and Taste Crème's partnership, you can have your cake and eat it too!
