I do consider myself a sushi snob, I've eaten at most of the best sushi places in NYC (Yasuda, Nobu, Bond street, Etc) but also eat at local places for more every day affordable prices. I had a 2 hour layover back from Hong Kong and didn't feel like only have airplane food during the 18 total hour trip. I stopped in and had the Omakase Nigari special and an additional piece of Uni, as i wanted to try the best the chef had to offer. Although pricey for airport food, at 6500 yen for the platter, this was by far inexpensive for the quality delivered. Everything was incredibly fresh and of quality. One thing which I thought was funny was the sushi chef, keep reminding me not to use soy sauce. I guess this is because it is a sin to drown the sushi in soy sauce like so many of us do in the US. Each piece had just enough soy added by the chef to bring out the natural flavors.
So if you have the chance and are stuck at the airport this is a must go to for a excellent meal.
