Breakfast with Shouma
Sushi-bun is my favorite sushi place in the world, in the row of restaurants outside of the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. There are only 10 seats so I have walked in and waited about 45 minutes, depending on the day. If the line is long, they will bring you tea while you wait.
I highly recommend the omakase C-set. It comes with 10 pieces, 3 roll pieces, soup (アサリ汁) and tea. The 10 pieces include o-toro and chu-toro (fatty and medium fatty tuna), akagai (赤貝 a clam), uni (sea urchin), and their amazing and fairly famous anago (sea eel). The anago is boiled and has a sweet sauce. It is so soft the sushi chef tells you to use your hands because the chopsticks with crush it. I can't describe how incredible this piece is, just completely melts in your mouth.
*Open from 6am-2:30pm, closed Sun/Holidays and market close days
*Check here for Tsukiji schedule, don't go on the red days
