Breakfast with mom and Take
We went back again - again thwarted by Sushi-bun, but I was impressed with Ichiba-sushi. Included in the seasonal tokujo-omakase was shirako (which is basically cod gonads), which was just amazing, ordered a second one.

Breakfast with mom
My mother and I trekked out to Tsukiji for the best sushi and were devastated when we discovered that we picked the one weekday of the month that the market was closed. Luckily a few sushi restaurants were open and we sat down at Ichiba-sushi, a place I had gone in the winter.
We spoke with the chef, this restaurant has only been open since August 2006, but it is quite good. We had the 3675 yen Tokusen Omakase set (特選おまかせにぎり) with 15 pieces of sushi. Always get the omakase at a sushi place, they know best (omakase means "chef's choice").
