It’s a one fine day in Tokyo and as you wander around the Tsukiji market, the old outpost of the once buzzing fish commerce spot, you bump into one of the fastest yet most fulfilling sushi lunch there is. Sushidai is a well known name in the foodie circle of Tokyo visitors but thankfully, thei Tsukiji outpost has stayed rather low key and a bit off the radar.

The wait outside this plain storefront is not long (they usually open just before 12:00) and the seating space on the ground floor is very limited with only 6-8 stools around the sushi chef’s counter. Upstairs there is more space but you wouldn’t like to miss all the fun from the prep going on.

For a decent price you get an amazing omakase that should do the trick for your lunch and actually leave you wanting more. Tuna, shrimp and whitefish all in a perfect array of nigiris. For something more rich in flavour, we dig into the sea urchin hand roll and also make a special request for some eel to finish our sampling.

The service is quite attentive and take their work seriously. At Sushidai you won’t be bothered by the loud tourists or the usual locals. Everyone is gracefully enjoying their lunch and the fresh delicacies from the chef.

Well done!
