Sushi Iwa is arguably one of the most talked about sushi restaurants in Tokyo. The One Michelin Star restaurant in Ginza, Tokyo, has an elusive shop front and an even more “exclusive” reservation list.
It took us numerous attempts over a period of two years before we finally succeeded in scoring two seats on one of those weekday afternoons for lunch.
So, are they really worth all the hype? You will find out in a while.
There is a common misconception that Tokyo is a pricey destination to visit, what with souvenir shops by the dozens, and tasty food choices no matter where you turn. But saying that Tokyo is expensive need not necessarily be true.
We believe that you can always choose whether or not your trip to the land of sushi, ramen and all things kawaii is going to be painful to the wallet or not. Tokyo has many affordable yet impressive dining options within the city.
Ganso Zushi—a Kaitenzushi chain in Tokyo—is one such place. It is not a name as frequently mentioned when people talk about dining in Tokyo, but it is definitely one which serves fresh sushi at incredibly affordable prices.
Just when you think the Japanese cannot outdo themselves, they prove you wrong. They have always been known for their creativity in innovations, and our recent visit to Kura Sushi in Ikebukuro proved that a sushi restaurant need not be just a sushi restaurant.
Kura Sushi might not seem like much to the unsuspecting passerby. But look out for it, and you will be rewarded with pocket-friendly ¥100 sushi. Yes, you read that right—¥100. That is less than S$1.50!
But eating has never been more rewarding. You also get to experience the gachapon machines within the restaurant! Here is why you should visit Kura Sushi And Go Crazy With ¥100 Sushi.
As you take a stroll down Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, you will be greeted with a plethora of snack stations, eateries and coveted sushi restaurants. There are a number of big names here, one to look out for is Sushi Zanmai—a popular choice among both locals and tourists.
Despite being a sushi chain, Sushi Zanmai is still commendable. The ingredients are extremely fresh and each sushi is intricately made by the team of expert sushi chefs behind the sushi counter. You can even catch the chefs in action up close if you manage to snag a sushi counter seat.
Sushi Zanmai’s sushi platters are well loved because they are considerably inexpensive for the amount and quality. Our tummies were certainly satisfied after gobbling them up. Here is why you need to visit Sushi Zanmai.
