    ADDRESS: 3-21-10 Shinbashi, Minato Tokyo
    OPEN: 11AM-11PM

    🍣Uogashi Nihon Ichi opened 30 years ago and today boasts more than 20 locations around Tokyo. They are consistently voted best sushi in town by locals, in large part because of their ability to always find the best, freshest seasonal ingredients. We sampled six different foods, including: buritoro (Japanese amberjack), ankimo (goosefish liver), mushikaki (steamed oyster), honmagurozuke (pickle tuna), kue (longtooth grouper) and sumakatsuo (skipjack tuna).

    💸PRICE: From 0.68 - 2.73 USD/75 JPY to 300 JPY | Average: 1.82USD/200 JPY per person
    2. KATSURYOKUUOKIN: Sake + Tempura + Sashimi
    ADDRESS: 3-18-5 Shinbashi Minato Tokyo
    OPEN: 5PM-11:30PM Mon - Fri | 4:30PM - 11:30PM Sat | CLOSED Sun & public holidays

    🍶Katsuryokuuokin is known for their daily menu, which changes based on the fresh seasonal ingredients they get each day from Toyosu Market, the largest wet market in Japan. In addition to their variety of dishes, they offer a wide variety of sake, sourced from different regions of Japan. A few top dishes to try include: Shirako tempura (soft fried roe) and Aonoritohu (tofu seaweed soup)

    💸PRICE: Sake + Tempura + Sushi meal: 27.33 - 36.44 USD/3,000 - 4,000 JPY per person
    3. SAKESIMIZU: Grilled Pork Skewers + Raw Horse Meat
    ADDRESS: 2-18-4 Shinbashi Minato-ku, Tokyo Isobe Building B1F
    OPEN: Tue - Sat: 5PM - 4AM | Mon - Sun: 5PM - 11PM

    🇯🇵Sakesimizu became a popular establishment in Japan thanks to their raw fresh horse meat. It’s customary to enjoy sake when eating this delicacy.

    💸PRICE: Basashi (horse meat): 18 USD/1,980 JPY | Mojutsu (grilled pork giblet on a stick): 4.11 USD/450 JPY each | Original chicken skewer and pork intestine: 6.21 USD/680 JPY per skewer
    4. SHINJIDAI: Crunchy Chicken Skewers + Sake Steamed Clams + Fried Chicken Skin
    ADDRESS: 3-25-19 Shinbashi Minato-ku, Tokyo
    OPEN: 3PM - 5AM

    🍗Shinjidai opened 12 years ago and quickly became a favorite izakaya for Tokyo locals. Their signature dish is fried chicken skin, selling over 10,000 skewers each night. The two flavors of fried chicken skin offered are original and spicy (cooked with red chili powder).

    💸PRICE: Saba no shioyaki (grilled salted mackerel): 4.37 USD/ 480 JPY | 2. Asarino sakemushi (sake steamed clams): 4.37 USD/480 JPY | 3. Torinokawa (fried chicken skin): 0.82 USD/90 JPY per pieces | 4. Dashimakitamazo (rolled omelette): 5.38 USD/590 JPY

    Hey, I’m Sonny! I’m from the US but currently call Vietnam home. I’ve been living in Asia for 10 years and started making food and travel videos to document my experiences. People either enjoyed my undeniable charm or enjoyed watching me eat things like coconut worms, and thus Best Ever Food Review Show came to be.

    I travel to different parts of the world, hunting down and documenting the most unique food each country has to offer. If you see any factual food errors in my videos, please feel free to politely let me know in the comments. I'm a huge fan of trying different, interesting foods in each country. My show is from a Western point of view, but more importantly, MY point of view. It is not meant to offend any person or culture.
