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.
Overall taste: 8/10 | 2016 | 5 Chome-2-1 Tsukiji, Chuo, Tokyo 104-0045, Japan
If you visit Tokyo, you must go to Tsukiji Fish Market. We only went to the outside market of Tsukiji; it was really crowded even on a weekday. There were lots of small restaurants and stalls selling mouth-watering food (sushi, ramen, snacks, desserts). Definitely come on an empty stomach!
Note: This Tsukiji location will close and be moved to Toyosu sometime in 2017/2018.
For some of the food we got, we attached a picture of the stall next to it since we can’t read Japanese.
Tuna, ikura and uni don (900 yen) [The portion was smaller than we expected. We really loved the sushi rice and the freshness of their ingredients]
Sushi shaped candy [We didn’t try this but we thought they were incredibly cute!]
Lineup for this stall!
Tamago (100 yen) [Look at the size of that tamago! This was on the sweet side but we liked that it was incredibly fluffy.]
This bakery is located in the basement level of Isetan Shinjuku. There are so many good food there! Unfortunately, there is no seating area. There are even “no eating” signs everywhere. It’s meant for you to buy it there and bring it home to eat. Luckily, we found out that Isetan has a beautiful rooftop garden with seats.
