Ebi Japanese Kitchen and Sushi Bar

Located at Calle Larga 571 between Hermano Miguel and Mariano Cueva, in the city of Cuenca - Ecuador. Ebi Sushi Bar has a varied menu with sauces created in its own kitchen, which are one of the secrets of its success. The repertoire of dishes is varied and izakaya style, which means that they are designed to be eaten individually or shared. Their chefs are innovative and creative with an arduous experience in gastronomy-moving away from the traditions- since in this place a fusion of Japanese and Ecuadorian gastronomy is made, except when it comes to the authenticity of the ingredients.
