Tsukiji Uoichi

Arcade Independence Square, Clock Tower 1st Floor, Independence Square, Colombo 7

Over a year since first opening its doors Tsukiji Uoichi is still going strong. They've got one of the most impressive Japanese menus in Colombo and they're execution is excellent. Their prices are on the higher end but the food is well worth it and the service is as efficient as it gets.

I just ordered their Sushi Bento via YAMU delivery (on app). The short of it is, the sushi is quite excellent. It's not as affordable or generous as the Naniyori Bento (my usual goto for indulgent sushi delivery), but Tsukiji's version is higher quality.

That is, the sushi rice is excellent. This is actually a highly important part of sushi preparation that chefs spend years training to get right. On Sri Lankan sushi it's often an afterthought, but it makes a difference, and Tsukiji gets it right, at least in this experience.

There's is also something about the sushi, both nigiri and the rolly one, that has that little extra that makes the brain tingle. Average sushi is still tasty because soy sauce, but the pieces I had were fresh and balanced where it gave you that little extra joy that comes with good sushi.

The miso that comes with is excellent, but the other sides were whatev. The salad was OK, the red bean thing was confusing and hard to eat with chopsticks, the wasabi was weak and they gave pickled veg instead of ginger (that could be good or bad depending on your taste, I prefer ginger).

The Naniyori Bento is more of a complete package, but if you're looking for excellent sushi delivered, I'd recommend Tsukiji. It costs, however. Rs. 2000, so that would likely be a rare indulgence.
