For lunch one day in Tokyo, I walked over to Tsujihan (つじ半) a popular Japanese food restaurants serving sashimi raw fish seafood mixes over rice.
I had to wait in line for a little while, but it was so worth it. It’s really a Japanese food gem in Tokyo, amazing quality and not expensive.

hey everyone its mark Wiens in Tokyo Japan and my cats hanging out too we are walking over on our way to go eat lunch and lunch is always one of the best times of the day in Tokyo there's so many choices of things to eat but this looks like a fantastic lunch option shouldn't be too long of a walk and I am looking forward to lunch and sharing it with you right now we are staying in Ginza but the restaurant is in the home boshy and it's just a short walk home boshy oh wait that's me home boshy that mean combustion okay we're walking towards little machine nothing makes me more excited every single day than lunch I think that might be the line we need to wait it we just arrived at the restaurant there probably are about 25 or so people in line ahead of us but that is one of just the standard indicators of a restaurant of excellence in Tokyo almost all the good restaurants here you go to there should be there will there will be just indefinitely there will be a line outside and you have to wait but sometimes it actually increases your anticipation for all you're about to eat you can just contemplate about it while you're going to eat think about it and then when you you get to taste it for the for the first time it's just that much better hello hello for to don't bully somebody um does this one come with Kuni of the free okay I'll get one one of this one and plenty happy max and then one of this one I think though as you're waiting in line they come around to take your order and you only have I think there's only three options but she said they have an English menu as well but I just looked at that menu and I knew exactly what I was already ordering the the one at the bottom the the special Bowl which comes with as many goodies as possible we are making some progress we're almost to the front of a line and they have an English menu here and here's the here's the standard one which is called up boom a which includes tuna fatty tuna shrimp clams salmon roe squid herring roe and cucumber and then I went with the extra special one which includes all of those ingredients plus crab meat more salmon roe and sea urchin oh I cannot wait for this and then also when you reach the the front of the line here they have key for you my excitement is at an all-time high right now that's all insects okay thank you Hey oh yeah there's only about about 12 feet sore so I and then there are two chefs one who is chopping up the tuna and the fish and then one chef with assembling czar at the right moment oh thank you okay thank you there's not a lot of space in here but it's all it's all bar counter seating so you sit right in front of the chef's as they prepare your bowl and as he's making it it almost looks like he's making snow cones because the tiles the fish so high this is absolutely gorgeous and I got all of the seafood mixed in there's there's the different pieces of tuna there is the ROE and there Antonia Dominic's in all over a lot better all right and then you added on some different seasonings as well and some sesame seeds this looks absolutely incredible and there's a sauce there's a side sauce as well but I just want to goes all person that is excluded daddy tuna just melts in your mouth but then I got something like kind of crisp in there as well could that be the pieces of shrimp with the amount of textures in there and then you can also taste the little fibers of silky crab in there as well that is insane and I haven't even added that sauce on it completely here right now well that mixture of fish and in that sauces has a little bit of a mustardy taste to it and then definitely soy sauce in there as well okay let me grab my next bite with a piece of seaweed and another thing you can really taste in there is a little bits of Kuni which is like little little bits of butter mixed with enough food and the rice wow that just adds an extra dimension of creaminess to it oh I got a hanging piece of something so that was amazing down to the last grain of rice and then what you do is you put your bowl back onto the top of the counter and you get a refill with soup I mean I think what you're actually what most people do is they take the sashimi and then stick it into their soup at the end of the video and they ask you if you want extra right they'll put rice in it and then they give you hot fresh steaming soup and I actually saw that he he shredded on some of the zest some of the peel of yuzu which is a strip and they put that right into the soup so it you can actually smell the slight citrusy but it's very very delicate very very not too not too strong well that is amazing and chase it with some of the soup mmm the soup has a I think it's fish based but it's almost like it's almost creamy from the fishiness of it and then it's you can taste just that hint of a citrusy flavor there's a little bit of cilantro in there and when I took that bite with the rice and everything that citrasena came in really nicely thank you very much okay I'm just coming out of the restaurant now wow that was though it's a spectacular lunch oh that's one of those lunches where you just feel like a better person after you you come out of the restaurant I feel so clean and so fresh that was stunningly fresh and and well not really not really simple because it was a it was quite a mixture of different fish and different ingredients but the actual seasoning was was very simple but like with so many Japanese dishes that simplicity the pureness the cleanness the freshness that's what really really shines here man that was awesome and just that light sauce and then the soup to polish it up I want to I want to get back right in line again all the lines kind of short I'm actually tempted to just get right back in line and and eat another round well that was ultimately satisfied thank you all very much for watching this video please remember to give it a thumbs up if you enjoyed it and if you're not already subscribed click
