Popular Sashimi Restaurants in Tokyo - YONPACHIGYOJOU 四十八漁場, KAPPOU SAITOU 割烹さいとう

I often go to seafood restaurants in Tokyo. I will introduce two recommended restaurants below.

Sashimi and Grilled Fish at Dinner Time - YONPACHIGYOJOU 四十八漁場

Specialty
This restaurant's sashimi is top-notch and delicious because they purchase many kinds of fresh seafood directly from fish town's markets and fishermen all over Japan.
I would also recommend that you try their grilled fish because they use fresh fish for grilling as well.

In fact, when you order grilled fish, the waitress will literally bring the catch of the day to your table for you to choose.
The restaurant lets you handpick your favorite fish with help from the waitress. I think this business model is good for the customers.

Seafood Bowl at Lunch Time - KAPPOU SAITOU 割烹 さいとう

Allow me to introduce a Japanese style seafood restaurant which offers a really reasonable lunch in Tokyo.
One of the most popular food items at this restaurant is Large Size Kaisendon 海鮮丼. It is a set meal and only costs 1050 yen during lunch time.
海鮮丼
Kaisendon is a rice bowl topped with several kinds of fresh seafood. The seafood is mainly sashimi that is raw or boiled seafood.

Menu

  • 海鮮丼 Kaisendon 850 yen
    Seafood Bowl - Regular Size
  • 海鮮丼(具の大盛り) Kaisendon (Gu-no-oomori) 1050 yen
    Seafood Bowl - Large Size of the Toppings.
You can change the rice to the large size for free. (No extra charge.)
When you order Kaisendon you can say,
Gohan oomori ご飯大盛 (Large rice)

Specialty
This restaurant's specialty is the large quantity of sashimi. When you are eating their Kaisendon, it is a little difficult to eat the rice because the rice is under a lot of seafood.

So when you order the large size kaizendon. the waitstaff will ask you if you would like to get the sashimi separately from the rice like a set meal.

The photos in this chapter are Seafood Bowl - Large Size of the Toppings. (The vinegared rice is separated.)

The rice of Kaisendon here is slightly vinegared, but if you order the separate Kaisendon, you can choose vinegared or normal rice.
* Refill of a cup of rice is only 50 yen.
割烹 さいとう Kappou Saitou
There was a little bit wasabi on the dish. You can get another mini cup of wasabi if you like.
Simply say:
"Wasabi kudasai." わさびください。
(Can I have another cup of wasabi please?)
割烹 さいとう Kappou Saitou
When I went there, more than 15 kinds of foods were decorated on the dish. Although the ingredients depend on purchasing from a fish market every day.割烹 さいとう Kappou Saitou
