Xiangs kitchen is temporarily closed from December 18th and during Christmas for a renovation of premises. In January they will also launch a new menu!
Hidden away in a residential area close to Carl Berner you’ll find a tiny take-away shop. If you pass by outside you will not notice anything special about it. If you try the sushi you will definitely come back, and if you know the history of the chef behind this place you will be impressed.
Xiang has been a chef at the Opera house, at the restaurant in the venerable Grand Hotel and he has been a chef for the King and Queen at the Royal Castle. He has been the Norwegian champion in opening oysters, and he attended the creation of the world’s largest sushi mosaic in Shanghai in 2010.
According to the chef, his kitchen is all about quality ingredients. The menu consists of sushi, sashimi, maki and a few wok dishes. In addition to the normal selection of sushi and maki, including vegetarian options, he also has some special maki with extra filling. They are slightly more expensive but truly worth it! To my knowledge, there are no other takeaway places in town who present their sushi like Xiang, and it tastes great too.
Note that they only offer takeaway, no sitting area.
