梅丘寿司の美登利 Midori Sushi : The Long Queue

Usually if there is a long queue, it is not 100% guaranteed that the food would suit everyone but there is a high chance that it could be delicious for the majority. Sushi in Japan might be quite commonly found but this restaurant recommended by a good friend is really delicious.

Look at the long queue outside the restaurant. If you see this in Japan, there definitely must be something attractive about the restaurant that makes the Japanese consumers so willing to queue.

The restaurant does not serve sushi on a conveyor belt but upon order. Hence, each sushi is very fresh. What more can we demand when the seafood is delivered to the shop from Tsukiji Market every day. It is quite exciting for the people sitting at the bar as they can view the slicing and making of the sushi in live action!

(i am not sure why the english translation on its menu is called "liver" but the kanji actually directly translates into crab roe 蟹黄. Nonetheless, it is hard to imagine that the grey dressing is actually the yellow crab roe.

the sushi set 2100 Yen ( with uni, various parts of the fat tuna, scallop, white eel....)

Look at the caviar sitting on top of this fresh sweet ebi!

the anago is really delicious and the sauce is not too sweet. Meanwhile, the eel is slightly warmed and the meat is tender. There is really a different in the texture of this eel as compared to those packaged and sold at supermarkets. No wonder it is their signature item.

Seared Sanma Sushi (Seasonal Item)
for this sushi, the bottom interior side of the fish remains raw. This fish is the same type of fish 秋刀魚as written in previous post.

Actually this place was featured in a guidebook that I have read in Singapore. Majority of the customers are Japanese but there were also some foreigners (including us) dining there. The seafood here is really fresh and hence this is one of the highly popular places to visit for sushi.
