Sushi Bar Yon in Roppongi, Tokyo


A new sushi place has opened up near Roppongi station (3-13-14 Roppongi, 03-6447-0427). It looked to be rather high-end: the ingredients were all of very good quality, including that very sweet and creamy sea urchin above. The service was engaging too.

But a high-end sushi spot in my experience is usually rather particular about little things like an errant drop of soy sauce lingering on your plate, as well as making sure that things like pickles and wasabi are kept replenished. These guys didn't really seem to care that much.

Then again, maybe that's because this place isn't really *that* high-end. The price was less than half of what Mizutani charges (and that included alcohol!). Granted, that's still not exactly everyday-cheap, but it was a pleasant surprise at the end of the meal.
