Those in the Japanese dining scene would have probably known of Shinji by now; many food reviews have already been written about it. And most of those reviews, if not all, indicate that the sushi at Shinji is one of the best in Singapore now.
A visit to Tokyo isn’t complete without a visit to Tsukiji as well. Even though I’ve been here before, this time I wanted to explore the Tsukiji Inner Market so I was looking for a place to have sushi there with a short queue.
Originally I planned to try out another place besides Sushi Dai but this time when I reached, the other shops had queues and Sushi Dai didn’t have one! So I guess it was Sushi Dai yet again – which isn’t a bad thing anyway.
Sushi Saito is a Michelin 3 star sushi restaurant and it is the best sushi that I’ve ever had in my life.
Great and fresh sushi at Tsukiji Market! I woke up super early at 4am to go down to Tsukiji only to find that the trains didn’t start running so early
In the end I reached there around just after 5am. There was already a short queue forming outside Sushi Dai but I only had to wait like 30 mins to get in.
Went for the omakase course which was 11 pieces of sushi plus 1 more of my choice.
The nazi chef at Wasabi Tei has sold off his business to some new crappy guy who no longer gives the same amazing standard of food that he used to provide. Those thick thick sashimi slices and tasty hotpots and grilled foods. Wasabi Tei you will be missed! Here are some photos from my last meal there.

A good omakase lunch at Kaiho Sushi. Last time I had a preset “omakase” from his menu so this time around I’m going for the true omakase as decided by chef Bernard.
