Dinner @ Shisan Japanese Restaurant (Frankfurt Day 1)

After all the food at IAA we decided to go light and have some Japanese Food. There are not many Asians living in Germany therefore our choices were quite limited. We headed to Shisan after consulting our concierge for a good Japanese Restaurant.


Shisan wasn't easy to find as it is tucked in a corner of Bornheimer Landstrasse. The place was small but intimate and had a unique conveyor system for transporting Sushi. Unlike others which uses a conveyor belt, Shisan's sushi is transported via wooden boats on water.

Interesting Conveyor System that uses Water

The restaurant serves up a wide variety of Maki's both Traditional and Fusion. We ordered 5 different Maki's all of which were surprisingly good. The Sashimi was quite fresh and were sliced thick.

Overall this is the best Japanese Restaurant I've eaten at in Germany. The price is a little on the steep side at 56 Euros for all the food we had. This maybe expensive compared with KL and Toronto, but is pretty much standard for Germany.

Crispy Salmon Maki
This is basically a salmon maki that has been deep fried. The maki wasn't too oily and was very crispy which gives a nice contrast to the soft texture of the rice and salmon
