Hōru Sushi will open its first location in Legacy Hall this September. The sushi kitchen will offer a contemporary twist on the rich culinary heritage of Japanese sushi with new, refreshing flavors and textures.
Chin Liang, founder of Hōru Sushi, has over 20 years of experience in the sushi industry. He most recently served as executive sushi chef at KÄI in Legacy West, with previous stints at Lounge 31 and Steel Restaurant & Lounge.
“I’ve always been drawn to the energy of sushi bars,” said Chin. “There’s something electric about the connection between a sushi chef and their customers that inspired me to open my first sushi concept with a focus on that interpersonal interaction.”
In order to ensure the freshness of his dishes, Chin has chosen to keep the sashimi menu simple, with just three types of fish available daily. Additionally, the sushi bar will have daily specials based on seasonal availability from the Tsukiji Market in Tokyo, Japan. Mainstay menu items include snacks such as miso soup, spicy edamame, shishito peppers and hamachi & yucca chips.
Additional menu offerings include the Ahi Tuna Tower with spicy tuna, crab, avocado, sushi rice, tobiko, shredded nori, wonton chips and wasabi aioli, as well as the Legacy Hall Roll featuring tempura bacon, crab, avocado, tuna, salmon, yellowtail and masago, topped with sliced lemon and scallions.
“We’ve wanted to bring a sushi concept to Legacy Hall for some time and have been waiting for the perfect partner to complement our other restaurant offerings,” said Kulsoom Klavon, VP of Curation at Food Hall Co. She continues, “Chin Liang’s experience and creative vision for Hōru Sushi makes us confident that we have found the best possible concept to wow our guests and fill a much-desired culinary niche.”
