It’s time for sushis this week! Seeing how many sushi restaurants there are in Munich, we wanted to write about one that we think is pretty special. A restaurant that stands out from all running sushis, all you can eat or other high-end, loungy and super expensive sushi places. Eating at Haguruma is a real experience: your dinner will be a really good memory for  your taste buds… and for your wallet as well!

The location:
Haguruma is located in the Baaderstrasse 62, an area known for fashionable bars, cafés, and other trendy boutiques. Haguruma will be a good stop-over after an intense shopping session or a long day at work!

The atmosphere:
Haguruma does not offer a hype-chic and loungy ambiance and that’s precisely what makes all its charms: it is a rather intimate and confortable place. Typically decorated with japanese furniture, accessoires, aquariums and caligraphy paintings – we felt we could actually be sitting in the suburbs of Tokyo that evening… Haguruma‘s owner, a japanese lady, is always warmly welcoming you and while waiting for your saké, you can admire the sushi master working right in front of you: what an amazing show to awake your appetite!

The fffoood:
Haguruma offers a large choice of typical jananese dishes. The trend is defintely fish (raw and cooked) though there a a couple of options based on pork or chicken. The menu at Haguruma _is_ extensive: from the japanese standards such as sashimis, sushis, maki, and tempura with classics salmon, thuna to warm and probably less common meals such as chicken heart or liver (let us know if you’ve tried these). You’ll find both classics and more exotics options. Check out Haguruma‘s full menu over here.

The verdict:
There are many Japanese restaurants in Munich. Haguruma is probably not the very best one, but offers high quality food for affordable prices (at least when it comes down to sushis). This makes it for us a good address for an awesome sushis treat without spending half of a rent! If you feel like it, you can also learn how to make your own sushis with the sushi master of the place: Haguruma offers a japanese cooking course every sunday from 12 to 15:30, for 80€ per person. Itadakimasu!

What the Sour One Thought:
There are a couple of points that annoyed me a little bit: waiting times can be a bit long and the rice in the sushi was that evening falling to pieces. I did experience the long-ish waiting times before, but never had to complain about rice before. All in all I was quite happy with the evening.
