Sushi Kappo Tamura
Oft missed gemTook my family out for a special occasion. We had been here before so knew the food was good. Had a variety of things: the duck breast, assorted tempura, chawan mushi, oysters on the half-shell. Most memorable for me was the braised wagyu beef shoulder. It might not be the biggest menu but they definitely do everything really well, the only downside is its definitely on the expensive side so if you're prepared to splurge, this is definitely a place to try.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat discoverI do not go to japanese restaurants very often due to so many disappointments in Seattle area. Then my friend took me to Sushi Kappo Tamura the other day. OMG! I am so happy to discover this one. So I wanted to share the happy experience with my friends who love good food. 4 of us went for their mother's day, special Kaiseki set. Wonderful food, we did not leave one single grain of rice on the dish!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Mother's day experienceVisited for dinner on Mother's day. Service was excellent, and the food was fantastic. After having read several reviews which recommended omakase (chef's choice), but only seeing it as a footnote in the menu, I had to ask about it. I found out it is 7 courses and $100 per diner. A little beyond our reach. We went for the "tasting menu" instead, which was still 5 courses and more than enough food. The mustard greens and albacore with almond wasabe sauce was a fantastic opener, the duck was wonderfully tasty, and the sushi exquisite. The honey quince yogurt panna cotta at the end was just divine. Overall, not the sort of experience we can afford often, but worth it for a special occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest sushi everWe have been to Kappo Tamura many times and have yet to find a selection that we did not find ourselves raving about on the trip home.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMdonijiWhile the atmosphere is minimalist and the restaurant has no view, the service was very good and the food was outstanding. My friends enjoyed the sashimi while I savored the black cod, which was buttery tender and delicious.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYour next hot spotFantastic meal.
