GINZA 7-108. GINZA CORRIDOR 1-F
Long lines are a definite view during lunch and dinner hours in front of this little sushi restaurant behind the Imperial Hotel. I had to visit during odd hours (around 3 pm) to finally secure a seat.
Sushi Midori offers an extensive sushi menu which includes many roles (like california roll) not usually found in more traditional establishment and the prices are really cheap.
Part of the menu
A definite must try is the aburi (burned) sushi platter which costs a mere 840 yen and consists of salmon, tuna, squid, shrimp and enggawa (I haven’t found the english translation for this fish) all burned with some extra condiments including cheese. Absolutely delicious.
The aburi sushi platter
I also tried the regular sushi platter but found that my other favorite sushi restaurant Sushizanmai had fresher toro (tuna) and uni (sea urchin).
Sushi assortments platter
The california roll wasn’t too bad.
I have made up my mind that when I return, I will order 2 plates of the aburi sushi platter and will definitely be content.
