Sushi Dai

Hello Readers!

So today is the final blog about my trip to Japan. This time it's not fine dining but a humble sushi place called Sushi Dai.

Located in Tsukiji Fish Market, the biggest fish market in the world Sushi Dai was pretty hard to find at first but after a bit of looking we eventually found it.
their long lines starting from 4:30 in the morning. However we were very lucky and were the second last couple to be served. As we stood in line they gave us hot tea, we ended up waiting an hour and a half but it was completely worth it.

We had the Omakase and it started off with glorious Tuna! It was so fatty and wonderfully melted in your mouth. 

Next was what the chef called Golden Ice Snapper, I'm not sure what it really is but it was yummy.

We ordered some beer and they gave us some octopus, because octopus is beer food! 

This was followed by some Sea Urchin. It was really rich and sweet!

This is Horse Mackerel.

Some Japanese Omelette, which is a lot sweeter than you would expect. 

This was clam. So fresh that it was still alive and moving! At first I thought it was a bit creepy but I just popped it in my mouth and it was yummy. 

This was sea eel. The best eel I've ever had.

Some Tuna and Shellfish rolls.

Tile fish, such a gorgeous looking piece of sushi.

Ikura sushi or Salmon Roe. It was delicious, big bursts of flavour in my mouth.

At the end of our omakase, they asked if we'd like to have any more sushi....

We of course asked for another serving of their amazing tuna. 

This was one of the three chefs in the very small Sushi Dai restaurant. He was extremely friendly and tried to speak as much english to my boyfriend as possible and spoke Japanese to me as slowly as possible haha.

We had a really good time there, we felt very welcome and all the staff were extremely friendly. 
The sushi was beyond compare to anything I've ever had in Australia. You just can't beat the freshness fish from Tsukiji.
