“Magurobito”, the perfect place for a sushi snack break

Good sushi restaurants usually require waiting in line, or even a reservation. But sometimes, you just want to grab a bite and get going. That’s when a stand-up sushi bar comes in handy.

“Magurobito” is located at just a minute walk from Asakusa station. The location is very convenient.

Most stand-up restaurants are a bit overwhelming for female customers entering on their own, but that will not be a problem at Magurobito.

The menu is divided by the prices, making it clear at first glance.

Sushi at a cozy counter, not bad at all!

Right as you enter the restaurant, you will find yourself in front of the “L-shaped” counter. Behind the counter, there are two itamae-san (chefs).
The counter can contain about eight people maximum, I would say. As I was at the very end, it didn’t feel too crowded at all.


Pix-3


At first, I was slightly intimidated by the itamae-san, who looked a bit scary. But when I made my first order, I found out that they were actually very gentle.

I like how you can order from one piece of each. It allows you to try a variety of different fish!

I have plenty of personal space.


High quality sushi

Now, Maguro (tuna) and slightly broiled salmon to begin with.

To be honest, my prejudice towards stand-up sushi bars was, that the fish wasn’t very fresh. Well, I am happy to say that this was a total misjudgment!

The maguro smelled very fresh, and I could appreciate its natural flavor.
The broiled salmon was very nice, too. The ponzu (citrus and soy) sauce gave it a refreshing flavor.

Next up is, anago eel.

The fluffy texture of the anago together with the not-overly-sweet sauce is perfect!


Pix-9


Moving on to medium-fatty tuna and squid.

The tuna is a knockout, with its delicate flavor and texture.
The squid is nice and soft, and again, I can distinctly taste its natural flavor.

The small amaebi shrimps were so juicy, they almost melted in my mouth!

Very accessible and reasonably priced

Magurobito has a very fast customer rotation and is always packed.
As it is not a very big restaurant, it’s not the kind of place you can stay and relax for a long time. But considering its location and reasonable pricing, I thought it was very satisfying!

Stop by Magurobito, a casual sushi restaurant, right by the world famous Asakusa!
