Breakfast at Tsukiji fish market early in the morning has become my SOP whenever I’m in Tokyo!
At the top of my list is Umai Sushikan (うまい鮨勘)!
Tsukiji 5-2-1, Area 4
We took the counter seats, the best place to watch the chef in action.
P.S. Don’t you think the cup is so cute? My friend wanted to ask the chef whether we can buy it, haha. I’m still not sure whether she’s kidding or dead serious.
I had the sushi set: tuna maki, 10 pieces of nigiri sushi, tamago and a looooong slice of anago!
What an absolute steal at ¥2850 (approximately $47)!
Chawanmushi and miso soup are included too! Very value for money.
Huge, soft, fluffy tamago ❤
I substituted tako for a piece of aburi tuna with garlic. Gorgeous.
Another substitution: special-yet-fear-factor-worthy uzura natto sushi with raw quail egg yolk~
Sweet raw shrimp (snow crab in the background).
Scallop, always big and juicy!
THE highlight: anago!!! Love this so much!
