How does Sushi Den get such fresh fish?

One of the most important ingredients of sushi making is getting the freshest fish available. In Colorado, as a land locked state, many sushi bars do not have easy access directly to the fish market. We are one of the very first sushi bars in the United States to purchase directly from the fish market in Japan. At Sushi Den, Koichi, our youngest brother, is stationed at one of the largest fish markets, Nagahama Fish Market, located in our home prefecture in the southern-most island, called Kyushu Island. At 4:00 AM, he carefully hand selects the freshest fish just unloaded from the boat, then within a few hours, the fish speeds its way to Denver, arriving within 24 hours. Toshi also goes to the local fish market at 7:00 AM in Denver 6 days a week, where he painstakingly handpicks the freshest fish available just for that day. We also source many exotic fish from Alaska, Seattle, Boston, Hawaii, Florida as well as from Philippines, Canada, Mexico, and Spain.

Please enjoy our Freshest Catch of the Day directly from the renowned Nagahama Fish Market.

Does Sushi Den offer Take Out Service?
