Allrecipes FB Live 360:
Chef Shiro Kashiba

Chef Shiro Kashiba and his son, Ed Kashiba 

A few weeks ago Allrecipes had the honor of dining with world-renowned Sushi Chef, Shiro Kashiba, for our very first Facebook Live 360 Video! The icing on the cake? Enjoying the traditional (and insanely delicious) Omakase-style meal with his son, Ed Kashiba (Director of Operations).

For those who are unfamiliar with the term "omakase", it roughly translates to "I'll leave it up to you" and is a form of dining where you allow the chef to guide your experience. Whether you're new to the world of sushi, or a seasoned pro, it was a beautiful experience giving up control and allowing veteran Chef Shiro to show off his top picks of the day.

Let me also say that this was the best sushi I've ever had in my entire life. Ever. Every single pick Chef Shiro placed in front of us was delicious, but the highlight for me was the spot prawn! He started by showing off the fresh, LIVE prawns to us... then worked his magic to take them to a crispy, crunchy level of mind-blowing culinary perfection. I'd never eaten an entire prawn, and Chef Shiro showed me all I'd been missing out on. This is a MUST try if they have them on the menu.

Note: We were dining during their regular business hours, so we didn't set up any lights or additional mics. This is a pretty authentic experience and gives you an accurate idea of what the Omakase experience is like with Chef Shiro. Facebook's 360 technology actually feels like you're part of the dining experience since you can rotate the video around and see everything that's going on. Use your mouse to scroll around, or move your phone, for a totally immersive experience!

If you're in Seattle, run (don't walk) to Sushi Kashiba located in Pike Place Market. They open daily at 5p and have been known to have a line start as early as 4p, since bar seating with Chef Shiro and other chefs are first come, first serve.
