Saigon: April 2016
Early morning arrival in Narita and a late afternoon departure meant it was time to throw my bag in storage and hop on the Keisei Skyliner into Tokyo for some sushi!
Tsukiji Fish Market is supposed to relocate from its original location in November of this year, which meant this was one of the last chances to visit. The late morning crowds looking for brunch or an early lunch thronged the outer and inner markets, and the two most famous restaurants, Sushi Dai and Sushi Daiwa, probably both had lines since 5am or so-- as always!
Lacking the three hours to wait for Sushi Dai, I went back to Sushi Daiwa, where the 40 minute wait was much more manageable. The otoro and chutoro didn't seem quite as awesome as previous visits, but as expected, the rest was almost mind-blowingly good. Uni and red snapper in particular this time, NOM. Tamago as well. And hell with it, had to get a seccond chutoro and a second uni) before I finished, because who knows when I'll be back.
Sure, I've had just as good or better many times, but always for twice, or maybe it's three three times the price. The thought of such good sushi for breakfast/brunch... yyyyyuuuuummmm!!
Back to Narita after brunch, wandered the shops and the airplane viewing area before crossing back into security, then back into a shiny new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner for the ride home.
