It's so good that it got its own documentary: Jiro Dreams of Sushi! I have yet to watch it, but it (like the restaurant) comes highly recommended by many!

According to the well-decorated gourmand, you have yet to try real sushi until you dine at three Michelin-starred Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo. Chef Jiro Ono, who is famous as the subject of the 2011 documentary film “Jiro Dreams of Sushi,” helms the ten-seater joint. The venerated sushi master expertly crafts rice and raw fish creations at an impressive rate. Here, chef Robuchon developed a great respect for the Japanese culinary tradition. He also learned the significance of freshness, temperature, and precise slicing to guarantee high-quality sushi, applying these techniques at his own restaurants. Booking is extremely difficult. You’ll have to liaise your reservation through your hotel concierge; and even then, they might have to ask you for a local contact to up your chances for a seat. It’s all worth it though; do it for chef Robuchon!

Wish for lady luck to be on your side to score a coveted seat at Sukiyabashi Jiro Honten. Master chef Jiro Ono—the subject of the documentary film “Jiro Dreams of Sushi”—and his son Yoshikazu artfully craft an omakase (お任せ, “I'll leave it up to you,” a meal made of dishes chosen by the chef) of 20 perfect pieces of sushi! You’ll be tempted to stay as long as you can to savor every bite, but the experience typically only lasts around 30 minutes—so get ready to eat fast!

I’m not kidding when I say Ooma has a no-fail menu. Everything I’ve tried so far, I’ve been satisfied with. They also have a new menu, so this is an update on my previous recommendation. My list of personal favorites are now: • Mushroom Chips (So simple, but so good!) • Hanger Steak (The greatest of all time.) • Uni Udon & Beef Udon • Steak Aburi Maki • Soft Shell Crab Taco Maki • Crispy Tako Maki (Baby octopus + tamago!) GG!

My absolute favorite sushi place. It’s a big kiosk in the Mega Fashion Hall Food Hall, so you won’t miss it. Get the following if you want to try my recommendations: • Aburi 2.0 Poké Bowl • 5 of a Kind Aburi Maki (Tamago, Kani, Salmon, Tuna, and Unagiiiii. Huhu!) Thank me later.
