Burping in Tokyo

Just a short update.

I have not made the trip to the revered Daiwa Sushi, supposed to be the mecca of all sushi eaters yet. This is the famous shop in the Tsukiji Market, where they hold daily tuna auctions (which is off limits to tourists like me anyways).

But today, I made the trip to Midori Sushi in Shibuya. Midori is an above average sushi place, not quite Daiwa's stature, but not bad at all. Everything is fresh, and the prices are good. And even at 9.30 pm when we left, there were still at least 10 people in the queue waiting to get into the place. We endured a 45 minute wait in a queue that was at least 30 long.

I ordered the dish pictured here. The 2940 yen one ... they changed some items to give us fresh buys. But it's .... delicious !

It's so good I think I can faint dramatically with pleasure ... it's ... yummylicious. There's fatty tuna sushi, shellfish sushi, octopus sushi, sea eel sushi, cuttlefish tentacle sushi, big shrimp sushi, crab leg sushi, abalone sushi, salmon egg roe sushi, uni sushi, fish roe on kelp sushi ...

If you guys don't see those sushi items most of the time in Malaysia, that's because salmon sushi is considered ... normal ... not outstanding. Try and order some fatty tuna sushi ... *burp* ...

No pictures =P ... just great memories.
