YAMAYU SANTATSU ANTWERP
JAPANESE SUSHI RESTAURANT, SINCE 1988
Want to get to know us a bit better? With these stories we’ll get you started.
But of course nothing can beat the real experience, so we hope to see you soon at Santatsu Antwerp.
ABOUT THE CHEF
Mr Kurasawa founded Yamayu Santatsu Antwerp in 1988. For more than 20 years already he serves his clients top quality Japanese food in an authentic environment.
As a young man, a few months after graduating from culinary school and working in restaurants, he left Japan to come to and explore Europe. He worked in the best Japanese restaurants in different European capitals.
Customers followed him when he founded Santatsu in Antwerp’s university district. And now their children have become regular guests as well – different generations find each other at Santatsu!
HOW TO EAT SUSHI
Connoisseurs don’t use chopsticks to pick up a nigiri, but take it with their hands. The rice is not packed firmly – a good nigiri should fall apart in the mouth – and chopsticks might break it.
THIS IS WHAT WE SERVE AT SANTATSU
In Japanese cuisine we have many different dishes. Some of them you probably know very well. Sashimi and different types of sushi.
