I visited a true hidden gem in Jensen Beach serving the highest quality and most authentic sushi, Kaishin Sushi.
Often, when we think of sushi, we think of the “Americanized” jumbo-style rolls with several ingredients, but this is not authentic sushi. The chef and owner of Kaishin (which means satisfaction in Japanese) is originally from Japan and takes great pride in his quality and the true art of sushi. Rice quality is often overlooked when eating sushi. However, it is the main ingredient in sushi other than the fish itself. The texture, size, and shape all play an important role. Kaishin has the best quality rice and freshest fish.
You will not find a website or Instagram for Kaishin, but I will tell you it is worth a trip. I highly suggest getting one of their sushi/sashimi samplers and asking if they have any special fish not listed on the menu. They also offer a variety of warm and cold small plates and have a good selection of sake.
You won’t find any jumbo rolls here, but there are several rolls to choose from, with my favorite being the BR Special: Shrimp Tempura, avocado, cream cheese, & topped with charbroiled eel. Another one of my favorites is the Kaishin Carpaccio, in which you pick your fish, and it is served topped with masago, scallions, and covered in yuzu pepper vinaigrette. I hope you will check out this amazing restaurant in Jensen beach and try some of these dishes!
About the Author:
Born and raised in Martin County, I’ve always loved where I live, but it wasn’t until I returned home from college that I began to appreciate all of the fantastic food options in and around Stuart. After college, I quickly obtained my real estate license and found myself going out for lunch and dinner with clients quite often. Many of these individuals were from out of town, so they would ask me to choose a location. This allowed me to show off Stuart’s many family-owned and operated restaurants serving high-quality, delicious food. From waterfront dining, fine dining, casual eateries, boutique coffee shops, sushi, and breakfast and brunch spots, Stuart offers dozens of great dining experiences for every pallet and budget. When asked to select a few of my favorites, it was challenging. In addition to the food itself, I believe the entire dining experience, from the service, quality, and value, all play an essential part. These are just a few of my favorite spots that I visit regularly.
