A LITTLE ABOUT US

A LITTLE ABOUT US 

The Shiroyama Sushi Co. is the dream of Chef Ben Weissberg, who began making Japanese cuisine at his father's side when he was five years old. He has since studied under celebrated Master Sushi Chef Andy Matsuda, and runs the sushi bar at various Southern California eateries, but his current venture has more to do with those early days than it does with what's happened since. Ben was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area by one of the U.S.' best-known authorities on medieval Japanese weaponry. That passion for the culture extended to food too, and little Ben spent many hours in the family kitchen, working for snacks, inadvertently getting a world-class education in preparation and plating by a man obsessed with tradition. He was awed by the flavors and undaunted by the delicacies — uni at home, and sashimi cut from a gasping fish on a childhood trip to Osaka. Young Ben wasn't grossed out by this. Actually, he was in love. 

 

Today, Chef Ben shares his devotion with you, in your home, by passing on the loving knowledge he's accrued like his father did for him. Fittingly, “shiroyama“ (白山) is a translation of the family name, Weissberg — German for “White Mountain.” You'll find that geographical feature in the Shiroyama Sushi Co. logo (designed by Chef Ben's brother David). Flip over the daytime mountain motif, and you have a nighttime ocean scene. The emanating rays represent Nihon, another name for Japan, the origin of the sun.

 

Chef Ben is honored to serve the Orange County and the greater Los Angeles area.
