Sashimi donburi @ Tsukiji, Tokyo

One thing that every person must do while visiting Tokyo is to have a meal nearby the Tsukiji fish market (the largest fish market in the world). The food and raw seafood served here are believed to be freshest you can get around Tokyo. They have many varieties which can't find in other places. Rather than opt for freshest sushi that you can get, I instead try their sashimi donburi. Most of the sushi restaurant here are full and have a long queue. I not sure which restaurant to choose but I always look out for restaurant that is occupied by the locals rather than tourist.

Taste:10/10(Excellent. Fresh, juicy and well prepared sashimi with sticky Japanese rice at the bottom. The quality is there and make sure you take raw food in order to appreciate this dish).
Price:3/10(Expensive. Reasonable price for the quality of the food. The dishes shown below cost 2100 Yen).

There are 3 rows of seafood/sushi restaurant in the Tsukiji fish market area. You can see there a long queue in one of the restaurants.

I try this restaurant which offers sashimi donburi. Not many people but patronise by the locals. Quite good.

They have many types of donburi over here. It takes time for me to choose a set which have more salmon, a bit of tuna, some sea urchin & fish roe.

Finally I found my favourite. It has all the items I wish to have. Salmon, tuna, sea urchin & fish roe.

Tasty sea urchin.

Fresh fish roe with popping juice!

I crave for more! I order a small plate of scallop. It is good!

Green tea and some pickles.

  1. Hey, i enjoyed viewing your blog. I'm a Malaysian too. Just wanna ask is there any pork served in sushi bar you show?

  2. Glad that you enjoy view my blog. As far that I concern, I don't see any pork served in this restaurant. I can only see they have all the raw seafood. This is not a sushi bar but they serve Japanese rice bowl (donburi) which in my opinion is the best raw seafood so far.
