Sushimou is small. It only has a bench and stools around it. You need to reserve in advance in order to get in. And you better get in, otherwise you will not, dear Athenian or visitor from wherever, taste the delicious sashimi and nigiri that sushi chef Antonis Drakoularakos is preparing for you.

This is exctly what I did.

I booked the “stools”, showed up on time, and then ordered “omakase”, which is the chef’s choice.

So let the journey begin.
