Setting: Nothing special here at this sushi joint named after the famed Tokyo fish market, aside from the ubiquitous sliding wooden door and sushi counter. The venue virtually shouts “serious place for hung-over Japanese salarymen” as does the menu.
Food: The set lunches in and of themselves don’t seem to be all that special, but the fish is fresh enough to warrant the name. The typical soup, rice (if you didn’t order sushi) and dessert troika accompany your orders.
Recommendations: The actual reason we recommend this place is for what Tsukiji doesn’t have on the menu—the special sushi set, a steal bristling with yellowtail, maguro, shrimp, and anything else the sushi chefs fancy that day. And they offer only 30 sets daily. Take the blank stare when you order the “special sushi set” as some sort of test you must endure in order to attain this Holy Grail of Cheap Lunchtime Sushi Sets. Stare right back.
