Hi Saito-san,

Hope you have been well and keeping safe. Just wanted to see if you have ever visited Mibu (壬生) in Ginza, Tokyo. What are your thoughts on the food and experience (and is it as otherworldly as some consider)? Thanks!

The lunch course consists of 13 pieces of nigiri, but you can also order the dinner omakase course with otsumami.

If you like strong nigiri with a touch of red vinegar, lunch at Sushi Take is a good choice.

I heard Sarazan is run by the owner-chef of Comptoir Feu.

There is no fixed menu list, and the chef improvises dishes based on his customers' preferences, which sounds like a lot of fun.
I don't have any plans to visit at the moment.

Hello Saito San and everyone, I have a small list of relatively new or sushi restaurants in Tokyo that are not necessarily ranked the highest which I would like to ask how you would rank them (in terms of taste only, not value for money etc.)? Any standouts from this list?

Sushi AO
Sushi Keita
Sushi Hatou
Sushi Shota
Takagaki no Sushi
Sushi Shunsuke
Kobikicho Tomoki
Sushi Tomidokoro
Sushi Akira

Although I do understand personal preference also matters, I would like to hear your thoughts if possible. Thank you very much.

Kobikicho Tomoki (Never been there)

It's just my personal opinion.
I feel that the quality is relatively high everyplace.

Saito-san and all, would the decision to release radioactive water in fukushima deter you all from eating sushi in the future?

@guest To be honest, not really. If I die from eating sushi, which I probably won’t, I’d die happy.
Of course if I had a choice, I would choose fish that’s not from Fukushima, but it’s not like you can say “I don’t want fish from XXX!” when you visit a sushi restaurant.

If it bothers you, Fukumoto in Shimokitazawa told me a few years back that he no longer uses fish from that area because he’s worried about contamination, so maybe you can try going there.
