Goro + Gun lives up to its namesake, transforming a traditional Japanese staple into a modern classic that will satisfy even the most picky of patrons. Executive chef Tomo Mitsuno is a master of Japanese fare, creating intricate dishes that will excite your palette and intrigue your senses. His expertise is evident and includes the elite culinary certification in the safe preparation of deadly blowfish (fugu). Also unique to this restaurant, Goro + Gun’s employs a resident sake sommelier whose expertise is unmatched. She will perfectly pair one of thirteen curated sakes with each dish and take you on a journey of the rich history of each sake along the way.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am not typically a fan of sashimi. In fact, I am often the one ordering the cooked sushi rolls because I can’t stomach the idea of raw fish. The few times I have tried it, it has been rubbery, bland, and frankly unappealing. Chef Tomo has made me a convert. I could eat his sashimi every single day for the rest of my natural life and never grow tired of it. Each piece was perfectly executed with a balance of flavours that made me dissolve into a pool of pure joy. The finishing touches on top, from a beautifully roasted tomato to a delicate quail egg enhanced each bite perfectly. I’ve been planning my next girl’s night out here ever since.
The reviews online rave about each.
