One of the biggest pleasures of travelling is the wonderful people you might come across. American-Japanese Yukari Sakamoto is a sommelier, a chef and an author of a book called Food Sake Tokyo. We did the Tsukiji tour together – Yukari’s knowledge of Japanese products and cuisine is just incredible. After the tour, we went to have lunch at Sushi Dai ( Chuo-ku, Tsukiji 6-13-3). Not the one very close to the outer market, but it’s sister restaurant 5 min walk from Tsukiji. This place is much more local and not touristy at all and the nigiris, as well as some hot dishes we ordered, were just fantastic. One of the dishes we had was Saikyo miso-marinated gindara, which is basically “black cod”, mainly known outside of Japan thanks to Nobu Matsuhisa.
