Quick stop in Tokyo -- too much sushi?
Great forum here- after reading a lot of posts, we've settled and reserved a few restaurants in Tokyo. My wife and I love sushi but are concerned that we might have *too* much sushi on the list. We're going to Kyoto afterwards and will be focusing on other types of cuisines as well.
Sunday - arrive afternoon, dinner TBD (potentially with a local friend of a friend)
Monday early morning - Sushi Dai (Tsukiji)
Monday lunch - Monjayaki in Tsukishima?
Monday dinner - Sushi Iwa (Ginza)
Tuesday breakfast - Omusubi Gonbei?
Tuesday lunch - Sushi Taichi (Ginza)
We'll also try to fit in some Ramen from the ramen street in Tokyo Station... somehow.
Thanks for any thoughts! If you have any suggestions please let me know!
It's hard to say what is "too much sushi" as that would depend on your preferences. For example, I don't find much value in sushi in general, and prefer to focus on washoku, izakaya and single dish places (soba, tonkatsu, udon). The only thing I would say is that if you haven't spent that much time in Tokyo, I feel you would be missing out by filling up so many meals with sushi. A good izakya or mid-priced washoku in a local neighborhood is a great experience.
Oh, more pleasure ! Tokyo is the place for sushi ! Different than Osaka, and sushi Iwa and sushi Taichi are very different... if you're not feel like eating too much at diner at sushi Iwa, tell him. I usually ask him always something 'only nigiri, please!', 'uni(sea urchin)',..
