Tsukiji Sushi-Dai @ Tsukiji, Tokyo


First, to clarify…this is not the Sushi-Dai inside Tsukiji market, which the queuing was too much for me.

I couldn’t remember which website or blog referred me here but you can check out their web site. It was almost comforting knowing they have 4 shops in the area and they are not tiny.

There was a small queue when we arrived around noon on Sat. and compared to what I saw inside the market, this looked encouraging. Our wait turned out to be around 40mins or so!

We choose the JPY3675 set, 11 pieces + rolls…

The sushi was not only fresh but it was lightly and appropriately seasoned that I didn’t need to use any soya sauce.

Considering the quality of food, the service and the ambience, this meal was such a bargain!

Tsukiji Market, Tokyo


We didn’t come here for the trading excitement … Not many many years back, not this time too.

We arrived before 11am, the market seemed quiet from the outside but my goodness, I didn’t remember the queuing was so intense…queues outside of the shops and queues (very organized) around the block as well

The dry market was also fun…

Though I really wanted to take some of those delicious looking crabs home, I settled with these…
