Sharp-dressed Asian businessmen, slick paulistanos and the odd tourist fill the rows of this singular sushi restaurant. A capsule of oriental perfection, Sushiguen is the perfect escape from the bustling thoroughfare of nearby Avenida Paulista. Serving up the finest fish for more than 35 years, sushi man Shimizu is clearly doing something right – and we can attest to it. Try the tirashi (R$40-$67), a fish salad in which several types of fish – including salmon, tuna and sea urchins – are placed with geometric precision atop a bed of rice in a bowl.
