            he made one up with the pickled plum thing in the middle instead of rice too which i lapped up.

      Hold up - I know what kevin is referring to, but as great as Shunji is, he may not offer this type of tamagoyaki.

      kevin, you'd have better luck finding this at Kiriko, Q Sushi, or Shibucho..

        Doesn't Kevin ask this question every 3 months?

        But no, Shunji's isn't what you're looking for. Stick to Kiriko, or save up for Urasawa. Q looks like they have it too.
