£59.50 tasting menu

Tacked onto the five-star Westbury hotel in the heart of Mayfair, Tsukiji is a quaint 20-seater restaurant that takes itself appropriately seriously. When I hesitated over the 9-course tasting menu as an ashamedly picky eater, head chef Show Choong essentially told me to man the fuck up. I did, and I never looked back. In fact, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to look at the bright yellow lights of Itsu again.

That’s the problem with legitimately great sushi, it ruins what before had seemed fine; like comparing bargain coco pops to the real deal. The menu takes in incredibly fresh yellowtail sashimi, grilled oysters (my first. The less said the better), a fillet of black cod, octopus carapaccio, all topped off with a crumbly, biscuit based banana cheesecake, drizzled with chocolate sauce. It. Was. Amazing.
