Motion in action for the blurriness of the food, as they were chef proceeding the fish or me being busy taking pic, wondering what kind of fish lay next in front of the chopping board, or nom yum fish with pleasure cause I don’t want to miss out any fresh fish from the dock!
We came here as a surprise as we weren’t in the travel mood seeing ourself lining for hours, or from the early morning, for any MUST eat restaurant on whatever travel list or channels. We understand how good those must eat restaurant are, but we are too lazy and are a pretty chill type gang that anywhere that attracts us are good for the day. And of course, this line didn’t keep us long.
This restaurant is located in a very small alley, and most people would have miss it dazzling exploring vendors in the area. A friend of ours was thirsty, went looking around for vendor machine, came across this alley, and saw people standing outside this tiny restaurant and what’s more..the “400 years Edomae style Sushi” caught his eye and up next- we found ourselves lining up and wonder what’s inside this blur-transparant curtain.
We peeked inside every time someone came out this mystery restaurant and the first person in line would describe what he saw with the rest of us chatting, imagining what’s in and how is it like, a funny scene of us.
Finally after a good 30 mins it was our turn to draw the curtain and see what await us.
There are only 2 sets of menu, one is 10 sushi for ¥4,000, the other also with 10 sushi but only ¥2,800…the differences are within 3-4 sushi with different fish.
We are in Tokyo, a place where hygiene and sanitation is top list in everything they do, nonetheless the word “professional” as well, where they process the fish leaving no fishy smell nor taste.
One of our friend who has “ fish smell” issue ordered the ¥2,800 set, gobbled everything up with regret not ordering the ¥4,000 one.
One thing I must point out beside the fish were being handle very specially, the rice were quite different than those we eat at a regular Japanese restaurant. It’s very chewy and was add with red vinegar to give the rice a special touch also to highlight the taste of the flesh fish. I’d suppose it’s the Edomae sushi style, the rice were being shaped perfectly with sliced fish on top and good for one shot into our mouth.
We were delighted to see what’s next in the chef’s hand, and enjoyed our time here very much.
A must try-out for the 400 years Edomae sushi if you happen to be at Tokyo and plan to visit Tsukiji Fish Market!
* Please bear in mind I didn’t jot down all the fish name as I was just too excited for the show!
