Local fish deli rivals the famous Tokyo Tsukiji Fish Market
Not exactly to the large scale of its famous Tokyo counterpart with the same name, this tiny sushi bar & fishmonger located near Chapel Street is a must for sashimi lovers.
Some of you may have already heard of Tsukiji Fish Market, which is considered one of the largest fish wholesalers and distributors of fresh seafood in the world. Millions and millions of dollars worth of produce are auction daily as restaurant owners scout for the freshest ingredients to use for their dinner service.
Now you don't have to head that far in order to sample good quality seafood. We normally buy portions of salmon sashimi, oysters ($1.50 each) and kingfish and honestly believe that it tastes better than some of those served in high end Japanese restaurants. Plus you get more for your dollar.
The fish are packaged fresh daily on site and measured by weight. On average, it is about $50 per kilo and all you need to do is cut it up into pieces yourself once you get home. No need to skin or clean the fish. There are also scallops, tuna, abalone and more exotic types of fish on offer. It changes according to season.
Pictured below is about 400 grams of salmon for $20. Between two people, that is more than enough to share. In restaurants, you are lucky to get about 8 pieces for $10. You can elect for them to cut up the sashimi you selected for free if you plan to eat it immediately at the seating area.
