Japanese Hand Rolls Arrive to The Heights

in Dining & Nightlife by

Hand Rolls are one of the simplest ways to enjoy Japanese style fish and at Hando they resemble an uncut sushi roll. A piece of raw fish is wrapped in toasted seaweed with warm rice. The concept is straightforward but anything at boring. When you enter Hando you will won’t find tables or a hostess stand but instead a large U shaped bar and sheets of paper where you check off which rolls and small plates you would like and find a seat at the 22-seat bar.

Imagine being in of one of Japan’s large fish markets and finding a bar in the middle of it where you could sit and enjoy some of the freshest seafood in its simplest form. That’s what eating at Hando is like.
