Chef Hiro San has perfected the traditional sushi and sashimi dishes at FuGaKyu.
Celebrating a decade in Boston’s Coolidge Corner is the two-floor FuGaKyu
, which boasts of being the largest Japanese restaurant in New England. After an easy ride from downtown Boston to Brookline on the Green Line, diners can gorge themselves on Chef Hiro San’s traditional sushi and sashimi dishes. The Dice-K Maki, a signature roll packed with lobster and black tobikko (flying fish roe), is a nod to Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka and his teammates who’ve been sighted here. Also worth trying are appetizers like the lightly battered anchovy tempura and the soft shell crab spider maki. Authentic touches include free barley tea while you wait for your table, waitresses in kimonos and private, screened tatami rooms for bigger parties.
