Ginza Sushi Marui (銀座寿司処 まる伊)

Overall taste: 8.75/10 | 2016 | 3 104 0061, 3 Chome-8-16 Ginza, Chūō-ku, Tōkyō-to 104-0061, Japan

We love this place! This is located in Ginza and we waited around 30 minutes to get in. They provide an English menu so it’s perfect for tourists. We found this better than the food we had in Tsukiji fish market. That being said, we didn’t try any of the famous restaurants in Tsukiji that would have taken hours of wait to get in.

Tokusen Nigiri – assorted special sushi, 16 pieces (Yen 1,800) [This is so good. When people tell you the sushi they had in Japan was much better than the ones they tried anywhere else, they’re telling the truth. The rice tasted a lot better and the proportion was just right. And look at how well-marbled the tuna was (top left)!]

Dukeana chirashi-zushi – assorted lean tuna and coger eel (anago) on rice (Yen 1,500) [This is the first time we both tried anago. It’s similar to unagi but the meat tasted slightly sweeter and the texture was more fish-like.]
