Kabooki Sushi

“I want customers to know how creative our dishes are, and how much art we incorporate into our food,” says chef Henry Moso, whose youthful looks belie his seriousness and strong focus. There’s no danger of guests missing the creativity on display at Kabooki, the sushi restaurant named for the elaborately stylized Japanese theater. That same sense of drama is inherent in Moso’s plates, from seared escolar with kimchi vinaigrette, Chinese sausage and avocado puree to tiny “sailboats” fashioned of Scottish salmon, blue crab and Fuji apple.

But theatrics don’t extend to the atmosphere, which is staunchly un-stuffy. “I love when customers sit at our sushi bar and view our chefs in action in our open kitchen. I can feel the customers pick up on how much fun we have while we make our dishes,” Moso says. “I believe our chefs’ tasting menu (omakase) gives them the opportunity to get a feel for the Asian culture, and to see the variety of my favorite techniques.” Orlandoans who are passionate about sublime sushi have met their match in Moso.
