天下寿司 - 美味しいですよ!

Monday, December 14, 2009 Posted by YY on 7:42 AM

We were shopping at Shibuya 109 when it is time for lunch! Looking at the tour book, we walked around the region trying to find a place that the tour book recommended BUT the blur K was unable to find the place. -_-
Let's just say that the lesson learnt is to NOT follow the guidebook when:
1. Your topo skill is not good
2. You are damn hungry

Anyway, while still scratching our head on where is the place, we chanced upon a small rotating sushi bar located at the basement of a building: 天下寿司.

Seems like every plate costs only 130yen (~S$2) so we decided to give it a try.

While waiting for our turn, a Japanese couple who were having their lunch turned to chat with us in English. They told us that this place is their favorite sushi place as the food tastes really good. Hearing this, we were relieved~ =D

Some thoughts after trying the sushi, starting from top left, downwards:

Slightly broiled salmon - Melts in your mouth. VERY fresh and delicious.

Anago (congor eel) - ONE whole eel is served. Very very nice.

Unagi - Wery soft and fresh. Sauce is just nice, not too salty.

Tuna - Sweet and fresh. Do not have a slight trace of blood taste in it, unlike those we find here.

Hokkigai (surf clam) - Crunchy and sweet. This is K's first time to try it.

Slightly seared tuna - Sprinkled with yuzu salt (I think) to give it a refreshing taste.

Egg - Look at the thickness of the egg. And compare it with the ones you get here. Notice any difference? The taste and texture is absolutely fantastic.

Uni - Very fresh tasting, very creamy, sweet, and less the fishiness.

Chu toro - Absolutely fresh, and melts in your mouth and full of flavour.

We ended our lunch with a bowl of shijimi miso soup.

Look at the amount of shijimi in the soup. SLURP~~

Damage? All the above cost 130 yen per serving/bowl. Very worth it considering this can feed 2 people and the taste and freshness is well worth the price.

I can't really comment as I don't really take raw stuffs but to K, this has to be one of the BEST sushi he had ever tasted!

Lastly, some tips from K:

When eating sushi, DO NOT EVER dunk the sushi into a dish of wasabi-laden soy sauce, like how almost every SG ppl eat their sushi and sashimi! TOTAL waste! (I think the sushi chef will foam at their mouth if they see how SG ppl eat sushi/sashimi here...)

The sushi rice already has flavour and some wasabi! Only lightly dip the sushi (with the rice facing up so that the rice will not soak up the soy sauce) into the soy sauce (with NO wasabi) if you want your sushi to be slightly salty.

If you want more wasabi, just use your chopsticks to take a teeny weeny bit and NO MORE.

The soy sauce and wasabi is to enhance the flavour of the sushi and sashimi, and NOT to cover their awesome flavour!
