Satoru Mukogawa certainly knows how to party. The boss and popular chef of new eatery Sushi Kuu threw an exuberant opening bash on Sunday evening at the Wellington Street restaurant. Although the place may not have the glamorous prestige of higher-profile Nippon eateries like Zuma and Nobu, it's been a Central hit primarily due to Satoru-san's reputation with raw fish, and to some extent, his rugged chin. In addition to plying his guests with loads of food and drink, Mukogawa brought in a drumming crew from Japan and the thundering percussion could be heard from the street. 'I flew them in especially for the party,' Satoru-san explained, bleary eyed from all the toasts and sake-drinking challenges. By 10pm, the chef was so lubricated he was hugging and smooching everyone in the vicinity, male or female. So what's the chef's secret to success? 'Work hard!' he screamed at the top of his voice. Needless to say, Satoru-san also knows how to play hard.
