I can't help repeating this cliche sounding phrase upon every savory bite of the sushi, "Wow the toro melts in the mouth..wow this melts too" because it really DOES.
Dragged ourselves out of bed and half ran/half walked to reach this famous small place at 5am. The queue has already started. There were a couple of times where we contemplated to give up and walked over to Daiwasushi (which we will definitely try next time) but we prevailed. After 2 1/2 hours of waiting, hungry and exhausted but exhilarated, we were let in!! The friendly staff and chefs greeted us with a thank you for the long wait, and looking at the large amount of fresh fish meats at the counter which they successfully bid at 4am's auction, we knew it was going to be worth it. Better bring a cap if you're going during summer because the sun can be a pest as our queue line didn't have shades to hide under.
We ordered omakase (10 + 1 - 1 extra which you can choose from any menu). When the first piece arrived, we marveled at the thickness of the shining tuna belly. I was amazed at the warmness of the rice (got used to eating cold sushi back home because it wasn't made by the top sushi gurus in the world). Then i took a delicious bite. And then another and another...
If you are not a big eater, it's advisable to not finish the omelette dish in case you cannot eat the rest of the sushi and it's going to be such a waste!!! I had to take out some of the rice so that i can make space in my stomach to enjoy the succulent fresh meat.
It is unfortunate that due to the fact of not being able to forget the amazing sushi in Sushidai, i can't really appreciate the sushi back in my country anymore.
