1621 Sushi Pizza: Tickling Your Taste Buds With Their Innovative Culinary Mash-up
Quarantine has gotten everyone thinking of innovative ways to prepare and present food and this food start-up is making noise with its unique and innovative culinary mash-up of pizza and sushi.
1621 Sushi Pizza is a brainchild of founders Joan Teotico and AJ Reyes and the first of its kind in Manila. It was born out of Joan and AJ’s love for eating sushi and pizza that had gotten them into thinking of experimenting and combining the pizza crust and Japan’s famous sushi flavors.
With its unique concept that caught people’s attention, the original intention of opening by October already started early August.
1621 Sushi Pizza’s Three Iconic Flavors
Sushi Pizza Founder and Executive Chef Antonio Jose E. Reyes personally handcrafted each sushi pizzas giving each flavor a distinct and unforgettable taste.
One of their family and kid-friendly best-seller we got to try out is the Sushi Aburi (Php 450/9 inches) composed of fresh salmon and tuna with Kani, gari, tobiko, cucumber, spring onion, and nori topped with wasabi mayo, soy glaze, and handcrafted cheese sauce that is torched to add a smoky flavor.

The Sushi Aburi is a burst of flavor in one bite. It has the perfect balance of sweetness and saltiness coming from the mayo, soy glaze, and cheese sauce all the while giving that freshness from the salmon, tuna, and cucumber.
The Classic Tuna (Php 380/9 inches), on the other hand, is the first culinary creation of Chef AJ basing it on the long-time favorite classic tuna roll.
The classic tuna features premium ingredients from tuna belly to Kani, gari, soy glaze, sriracha mayo, handcrafted cheese sauce, tobiko, and tempura flakes.

Meanwhile, the Spicy Salmon (Php 450/9 inches) is a fun flavor. It features fresh torched salmon tossed in sriracha mayo, gari, and tobiko giving it a boost of flavor then topped with soy glaze, handcrafted cheese sauce, bonito flakes, nori, tempura flakes, and fried salmon skin.
These flavors can serve eight slices, good for two to three serving. You can also make special requests: e.g. fully cook salmon and tuna, reduce the spiciness of salmon, no mayo among others.

The sushi pizzas must be consumed immediately and can only be stored in the fridge for 24 hours. Should you wish to reheat, medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes is allowed in a pan and an oven at 180°C/360°F.
