Sushi Tokyo Ten: Savor the Chef’s Choice Sushi with the “Omakase” Course

Sushi Tokyo Ten: Savor the Chef’s Choice Sushi with the “Omakase” Course

Sushi Tokyo Ten is an incredibly popular sushi shop from Nishi-Azabu that now also has a location inside NEWoMan. The clean, modern space is soothing, inviting you to a laid-back sushi experience. The best way to enjoy sushi here is “omakase,” the style of leaving the order up to the chef.

Omakase means getting a full Edomae sushi course hand-made by the skilled chefs. You’ll be served seasonal appetizers in between the sushi delights, pampering you with luxurious flavors while guiding you through Japan’s four culinary seasons. Sip on a glass of liquor of champagne while diving into the world of traditional sushi, prepared right in front of your eyes.

Next to nigiri, the shop also serves exquisite sashimi, beautifully arranged.

For breakfast, we recommend the “Bara Chirashi” (1,500 yen, tax excluded). This dish is also offered late at night.
Definitely go for the “Omakase Course” (7,000 yen, tax excluded) for lunch and dinner. It’s a more than reasonable price for a full, authentic Edomae sushi course that is prepared right in front of your eyes. A casual chat with the chefs is the cherry on top of this stunning gourmet experience.

Tuna soaked in soy sauce for an entire day is just one of the examples of authtntic Edomae sushi.
