Mar, 14 2024

We are thrilled to welcome our first visiting sushi chef, award-winning Chef Pepi Anevski to Coco Bodu Hithi this March. Originally from Macedonia, Chef Pepi won first place at the World Sushi Cup 2013 in Tokyo and is renowned as the world’s most creative sushi master. He has specialised in classic Japanese sushi in Chiba, Japan under the tutelage of Mr Masayoshi Kazato. A certified sushi head chef with more than 20 years of experience, Chef Pepi holds certifications from the World Sushi Skill Institute and the All-Japan Sushi Association (AJSA).

In 2019, he opened Sushi Rebellion in Mälmo, Sweden, with the intention of serving high quality sushi with a rebellious touch in a casual, urban environment. The restaurant was recently voted as one of the Top 10 Best Sushi Restaurants in Sweden.

“What I bring to the table is a solid understanding of cultural differences, a strong track record of working cross functional, and understanding of the whole value chain from raw product to the customer’s plate”, says Chef Pepi.

Since 2012, Coco Bodu Hithi has opened its doors to guest chefs, but Chef Pepi marks the first sushi maestro to helm the kitchens of Tsuki. He will enchant guests with two extraordinary dinners on March 31st  and April 1st . Additionally, he will offer two exclusive experiences, showcasing dishes that blend the Maldives' vibrant flavors with traditional Japanese and East Asian elements. Chef Pepi's visit promises a sensory delight.
