I'm a sucker for a line and when I hear regulars talking to the owner then I'm in. This day my love for Japanese sweet eggs cause that 100yen to pop out.
Egg comes in 3 little cubes. One with greens (can't recall what it was), second was the traditional egg and third cube had little baby shrimps in it. Came out chilled but other than the uniqueness of 3 varieties on a stick there really wasn't anything special about this.
The guy running the spot said they have been in business for 80 years and asked why he was so fluent in English... seems he studied in New Zealand. If you've ever seen the documentary about Michelin 3 Star Sushi Jiro (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukiyabashi_Jiro)it takes an apprentice 10 years to properly make an egg so I posed the same question... He said it take a Chinese part-timer 1-2 days to make it. An so the 80years he had previously mentioned lost its luster... I won't be back but if you want to chat up someone in Tsukiji give this place a try.
A must watch. Story about Sushi Jiro.
Oh, the shop is on the end of the block housing these 2 extremely popular sushi shops... Oedo Kaisen-Don (Rating 3.33) http://tabelog.com/tokyo/A1313/A131301/13045427/ and Naka-Ya (Incredibly lowly Foodie Ranking 2.91) http://tabelog.com/tokyo/A1313/A131301/13007610/. Unsure why these 2 places are so popular with Asian tourists.
