When in Tsukiji Market, you should not only get your sushi breakfast at Sushi Zanmai, but you must get your breakfast omelette at Terry Ito’s most popular Marutake Tamagoyaki!
Yes, Terry Ito is a famous TV personality known for his one wandering eye and has been in business with tamagoyaki for more than 80 years.
At Tsukiji market, there are about three stores serving tamagoyaki, all of which serve really delicious hot and sweet omelette!
I love sweet Tamagoyaki, which literally translates to grilled egg. You can either have it warm or cold, depending on your preference. I preferred it hot, since Tokyo was quite chilly that morning, a good 24 degrees that needed something hot to douse the feeling.
You can also buy a box of tamagoyaki to share priced around 500 yen per box. They serve many flavors including kani or spring onions.
But the 100 yen Marutake Tamagoyaki is quite a knock off, delicious and very cheap. You shouldn’t miss eating this.
Ah, my stomach now feels incredibly happy.
