Eat them up, yum!

August 7, 2015

After the tuna auction, I waited in a very lengthy line. It was sweltering. What follows changed my bad mood around very quickly.

Three sushi chefs serve a restaurant that seats 14.

Ginger

Tomago

Tomago

Miso soup in fish broth. Lots of little bones, but absolutely delicious.

The sushi is served directly onto the bar.

Each piece was the best version of that piece I’d ever had.

Fluke? Flounder?

Snapper

The uni was the best one.

Shellfish. I see. What kind of shellfish? Yes, shellfish! It’s alive! at which point my chef reached over and tickled it, and it moved. I later found out it is abalone.

Tuna

Only the rolls were dipped in soy sauce.

The chef was surprised I knew to eat with my hands.

Unagi

¥4000, or (at the time) about $30. Easily the best sushi I ever had, breakfast or otherwise.
