World Class Sushi in Revelstoke

Kawakubo Revelstoke InteriorThis place seems fit to be in a small town in Japan just as much as in Revelstoke. Walking into the restaurant the first you notice is a private room in front that you need to take off your shoes to enjoy. If that’s not your thing don’t worry you can head further into the main part of the restaurant. We decided to sit at the small bar in front of the sushi chefs Marc and Gabriel. With no idea of what to order these chefs were fantastic guides in our journey of the food that they make. Like a heaven sent angel, Gabriel whispered the words Red Dragon as we looked over the menu. California might be home to great sushi but this place is equal to anything you can get in that region AND the snow is even better.

Learned From The Best – JAPAN!

Where did they learn to make such good sushi? Japan, of course! Spending a few seasons tasting the “Ja-pow” both took it as an opportunity to also learn how to make sushi. Once they returned back from Japan to Canada they were able to get a direct connect to Vancouver to obtain fresh fish and the rest is history. Another signature sushi dish to try is the Rainbow, if you like eel. If you do show up to this spot be sure to let them know Local Freshies sent you.
