Tsukiji Japanese restaurant in Makati had a colorful history even before it took its place within the bustling city in the Metro. This restaurant is the brainchild of Chef Toshiro Okajima.
Chef Okajima’s attention was caught by the presence of a variety of scrumptious seafood present in the town where he grew up as a child. Later on, he decided to venture into the food industry and started working at the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo by buying fish and seafood for a small scale sushi shop in the city.
With his efforts, he became a full-fledged sushi chef and later on decided to put up his own sushi restaurant, naming it “Tsukiji.”
With the goal of living by the promise they believe in, Tsukiji continues to serve the freshest and best seafood from Tokyo’s Tsukiji Fish Market. The products they offer are all authentic and flown directly from Japan. Some of their best sellers that you must try include a sashimi collection namely Salmon, Scallop, Hamachi and Uni Sashimi Platter, Maguro Sashimi, Sanma Sashimi, and Toro Shake Sashimi- Salmon Belly.
