Still there’re some shops that I haven’t visited yet in Tsukiji Market.
Ryu-zushi is one of the shop and finally I visited there this time.
one of the shop that I had wanted to visit for a long time.
It is located in building No.1 in Tsukiji Market.
Building No.1 have three sushi shops. Iwasa zushi, this Ryu-zushi and Sushidokoro Sei.
There’s menu outside. Though there’s menu inside, too. But I can’t see well because I have bad eyesight.
They have three sushi sets. Kiku set (菊 / 2,500 yen), Ran set (蘭 / 3,500 yen) and Omakase set (おまかせ寿司 / 4,300 yen). And another they have three sashimi bowls and assorted sashimi. Those sets don’t have miso soup. If you need, you can order it with 350 yen.
They have such a seasonal seafood, too.
Now, saury, very young gizzard shad, sea urchin and so on. But I heard their seasonal seafood cost high a bit :p
There are counter seats only in the shop. The interior is really simple. calm.
I visited there for the first time, so I ordered the most inexpensive sushi set. Kiku set (菊 / 2,500 yen).
It have 7 sushi and sushi roll.
If you order sushi only, they don’t serve chopsticks.
Most of their sushi isn’t seasoned. So, if you need, there’s soy sauce on the table. So, you can use it. We used it, too. But the vinegared rice is flavory, so I think it’s good to eat without soy sauce.
They say “Without soy sauce” when they serve sushi that is seasoned.
First sushi was tuna. The vinegared rice was rather light and soft. Those rice fell to pieces in my mouth. That’s good texture.
Squid. It had sticky texture.
Red sea bream. It was marinated with konbu seaweed. So, we ate it without soy sauce.
Mackerel. It was marinated with vinegar lightly.
Spanish mackerel and scallop. I like the sweetness of the scallop.
Squilla. It was thick and good.
Last, Sushi roll. lean meat of tuna was good all the same. Also shredded cucumber roll was delicious.
They serve each one rather quickly. I think later, it’s not necessary to eat quickly. But I eat quickly after they serve sushi :p
No.1 sushi that time was red sea bream.
Kiku set is rather inexpensive and you can eat it with easily like snacks. Not too much.
If you want to eat at some shops in Tsukiji, it’s good amount;)
