Get to know me better
I’m always seeking for perfection in every cut
I am a Professional Sushi Chef with more than a decade of experience. I first learned the Japanese Art of Sushi in Venezuela for 5 years. I continued practicing this multidisciplinary craft in 3 countries before I settled in Chicago, IL, where I live now. Sushi making is a very personal experience to me and I enjoy creating something unique with the food colors, textures, temperatures, and flavors.

Our experience with Alejandro was amazing. Every dish was delicious, and he did a wonderful job explaining each course. He left our kitchen the way it looked when he arrived. He was also very friendly - my husband and I enjoyed his company very much.
We will definitely be reaching out to him again in the future.
