I often go to Tsukiji for breakfast, but I always go to same places (Yonehana, Odayasu, Torito and so on)
So, I asked the person who is specialist of enjoying Tsukiji to take me to Tsukiji that I don’t know yet.
He took me to Fukusen that is one of the eel shop in Tsukiji Market.
I visit Yonehana that is another eel shop in Tsukiji Market so frequently… I rarely eat eel though. :p
It is located in 6th building of Uogashi Yokocho in Tsukiji Market.
6th Building have Sushidai and Daiwazushi, too.
Menu and interior
This is the menu. THey serve eel and yakitori mainly. They have meal set and another, we can also enjoy kushiyaki (grilled meat on a skewer) and Japanese sake in the morning 🙂
Also Fukusen prepare valuable set like breakfast set, lunch set and so on.
There’re four bentos to go. They accept kabayaki (grilled eel without rice), yakitori and so on to go, too.
There’re counter seats and tables. It have cozy atmosphere. Many people who are working in the market come to this shop.
When I visited there for the first time, I ordered Unatori-don (うな鳥丼, 1900 yen).
Unatori-don have yakitori and eel on the rice. It have miso soup and pickled vegetables, too.
The amount of eel was larger than expected 😉
The eel is not thick, but it was fatty and delicious.
Because I heard Fukusen’s sauce is sweeter, I haven’t tried until that time. But it wasn’t too sweet, and the burnt smell of the sauce was good. The rice with the sauce was good, too.
I should have been there earlier… I’m appreciate for him ! 😉
Bu the way, when I visited there with the specialist, he enjoyed Japanese sake and yakitori in front of us. And I really wanted to make impressions of him.
So, I visited there again later for that.
Japanese sake (日本酒, 450 yen). It was served with pickles (included in price of Japanese sake)
Yakitori(焼鳥, 300 yen per one Skewer). I visited there with friend. So, we ordered two Skewers, but of course, you can order one skewers.
Those meats had springy texture. Fatty.
This is kimoyaki (肝焼き, 400 yen per one Skewer).
Kimoyaki is grilled liver of eel. This liver had springy texture, too. It wasn’t bitter, so easy to eat. I wanted to eat more 🙂
Of course, Unatori-don was delicious. But I want to visit there for alcoholic drinks and Skewers when I have no work 🙂
