Musashikoyama!

Recently we’ve been looking into our neighboring area, Musashikoyama. It has a great covered shotengai (shopping street), which also has some delicious foods and a kaitenzushi (sushi-go-round) which I hadn’t tried yet.

Here is the look of the place, "Tsukiji Ginikkan". It is a little pricey, but it gives a nice change from other sushi places.

This is umibudou, or sea grapes. They are also known as Caulerpa lentillifera, which is a type of algae found in the Indo-Pacific region. They're my new favorite sushi! This place puts some sort of shiso and ume paste on the bottom of the roll, so when it hits your tongue, you get this floral, fruity flavor. I could drown in this and not have enough.

Here is the tuna version of the carpaccio! This one is better, but I prefer tuna.

Salmon carpaccio! This place would put a carpaccio sauce, thinly sliced onions, and some mizuna on their salmon nigiri. It's really good!

Ichigo daifuku! I never thought that anything would improve the flavor of strawberries, but apparently koshian and mochi do!
