The Sushi Chef Series Profiles Oona Tempest and Toshio Oguma from Tanoshi

The Sushi Chef is a web series from Vice foodie channel Munchies in which the master chefs at top sushi spots in the City and the "city" of Los Angeles are profiled.

In this episode, the show profiles chefs Oona Tempest and Toshio Oguma from the Upper East Side's omikase-only Tanoshi.

Tanoshi Sushi NYC was born from a variety of happy accidents. King Ang, the owner, happened to come across an empty space on the Upper East Side that had no kitchen—which led him to make it a sushi bar. Toshio Oguma, the head sushi chef, was finishing up work in California when his wife found a Craigslist ad for an experienced sushi chef. Now, three years later, Tanoshi is creating some of most delicious sushi in New York City (and offering the most affordable omakase).
