At first, I was surprised that the sushi is really low prices ! Big and fresh Negimagu-don is just ¥650 (plus tax). Other items are also reasonable. It is the one of the reason that totoya has been loved by local people for a long time. A standing bar is running on Tuesday and Friday night. I would like to drink beer with fresh maguro, next time !
I recommend maguro nigiri sushi to tuna lover. My favorite is medium fatty toro which is on the center of the maguro nigiri dukushi photo. it melted in my mouth after a bite. There are crowded with many people who are eating lunch or shopping already-cooked dishes at the store.
Maguro Nigiri dukushi
1Must Eat !
Maguro Nigiri dukushi / ¥1,500 (plus tax)
All of them are tuna nigiri, but it has 3 kinds of tuna. The front tunas on the left photo are fatty tuna, the center is medium fatty and the others are regular tuna. Each tuna has a very different taste.
2Must Eat !
Negimagu-don / ¥650 (plus tax)
1 kinds of sliced tuna, sliced seaweed and green onions are topped on vinegared rice. Tuna had been seasoned already, you don't need to add condiment. It is in a large amount even though price is reasonable !
Nigiri Sushi
3Let's Try !
Nigiri Sushi / ¥1,000 (plus tax)
Nigiri Sushi has 10 pieces of nigiri sushi and miso soup. All of seafoods are really fresh ! You can take it out only winter season ( It is prohibited to take it out during the summer season)
4Let's Try !
The store which offers already-made dishes is outside of the restaurant. After purchasing, you can eat it in the restaurant or of course take it out to your home.
