In particular, the quality of its Maguro tuna enjoys an established reputation, so the Maguro Zukushi Don (Tuna Rice Bowl) and Ago Ni Teishoku (Simmered Tuna Chin Set Meal) are recommended. There is also a double-decker fish rice bowl, topped with 20 different types of fish such as sea urchin and medium-fat tuna. Named Tsukiji Jogai-Don, it really packs a punch!
