Kyubei, Tokyo

8-7-6 Ginza
Tel: 81 3 3571 6523
Metro: Ginza's insider take:

This venerable 71-year-old shop is known as the inventor of gunkan-maki ("battleship wrap"), the technique whereby sushi with a loose topping like fish roe is held together with a wraparound seaweed barrier. The chefs haven't been resting on their laurels—the fish here is still as good as it gets. Cuttlefish and abalone, items that have a tendency to be chewy, are incredibly tender, while the egg custard is an inspiration. Even the little entr'acte morsels such as pickled eggplant are outstanding. (Menus in Japanese, but they're happy to explain in English.)
