44 days since moving to Tokyo and tonight is one of the best I have so far in terms of company! We brought an American guest to izakaya Uoshin Ginza 魚真 銀座店 and as you can imagine, the sake/beer/umeshu (that last girly drink is for me!) flow steadily along with an array of delicious “bar grub”. Assorted sashimi, nokezushi, kegani, simmered nodoguro, fried potato shreds salad, now excuse me while I go into #foodgoma

This Tsujiri 辻利 is not the same Tsujiri in Singapore. A long established teahouse in Uji, it has opened a take-away outlet at the newest chi-chi mall in Tokyo — Ginza Six. An exclusive to said mall, the “extra rich” matcha soft serve is expectedly good but I’m one of those annoying customers who want a stronger dose of matcha ha.

K and I once queued at Midori Sushi Ginza 梅丘寿司の美登利銀座店 for more than 2 hours omg. The quality is not worth such a long queue but I guess we like to do crazy things like that. Compared to the kaiten sister restaurant, I prefer the “proper” sushi branches because the set menu is of great value and the staff is always willing to accommodate my un-Japanese-ish “I want to change A for B” requests. My first visit to Midori was in 2011 and kudos to them for maintaining the consistency over the years. Anago, chutoro and the complimentary kani miso salad are the best here!

Someone recommended Hitsumabushi Bincho ひつまぶし備長 to me on my IG so I made it a point to try. It’s good indeed! And so conveniently located at Ginza/Skytree. I love the crisp chargrilled surface and it reminds me of Man Man in Singapore where K and I like to go to after work. Ahhhh those were the days…

I was planning to lunch at another sushi restaurant but when I got there, it was not there. Of course, I was upset as I hate having my meal plans disrupted. Seriously guys, DON’T trust addresses written on English articles/sites unless you absolutely have to. Your best bet is Tabelog, the Japanese version of Hungrygowhere/Burpple etc. I won’t make the same mistake again for sure.

Anyway. I consulted my (long) list of shortlisted restaurants, went to 鮨 たじま in Ginza and left very happy. The value is unbeatable — for 1.500円 (!!!),  you get a premium kaisen don with uni, ikura and negitoro, seasonal otsumami (mine was tako balls with yuzu), miso soup and green tea. And warm towel. What a wonderful hidden gem and I’m only sharing the name of this restaurant because I don’t think many will read my blog. And if you are reading this, you deserve to know 😀
