Sushi Bun 鮨文 ♥ ♥

A trip to Tokyo never seems complete without a visit to Tsukiji Market. I love walking (and eating!) along aisles and aisles of Japanese treats, and I buy a few pasalubong there as well.

Decided to have a quick lunch at the market but did not have the patience to queue for hours 
at Daiwa Sushi or Sushi Dai. I've done both before. Never again. I asked my suki vendor
where his favorite sushi bar is and he led me to Sushi Bun.

The line was so much shorter than the two more popular sushi places, thank God!
A lady also served tea to people waiting.

After about 20 minutes, I was next in line. Yay!

Photography is not allowed at Sushi Bun. But I sneaked in a few using my phone camera. Mwahaha.

Toro (Fatty Tuna)

Uni (Sea Urchin)

Ebi (shrimp), maguro (tuna), chutoro (medium fatty tuna), aji (mackerel), akagai (red clam)

There were a couple other pieces like tamago, anago, hotate, tuna rolls etc. but the lady kept shooting me disapproving looks.

Anyway, I think it was a pretty okay lunch at 3850 yen. It was nothing like the quality at Sushi Yoshitake (see post here), but that also boasts three michelin stars and cost me about 6.5 times more.

There are two things I always do when at Tsukiji Market:

Ride a turret. You'll see thousands of these delivery vehicles
around the market.

And visit my super duper Japanese chef crush! ♥ ♥ ♥
