dojima toro-ya

toroya (2) Yesterday, we tried a new shop for dinner called Dojima Toro-ya.

They specialize in maguro (tuna) and toro (fatty tuna).

There was a lot of metal roofing used as partitions, which kind of reminded me of language lab at the university.

toroya (3) The lighting was the type you find on fishing boats.

Most seating is counter-style. The part I liked best was that it was non-smoking on weekends (I think sushi places should be non-smoking all the time).

toroya Satoshi and I tried their kaisen-don (seafood bowl) sushi rice was topped with uni (sea urchin), ikura (salmon roe), hamachi (yellowtail), ika (squid), salmon & akazaebi (dublin bay prawn).

It also came with some tsukemono, hijiki (brown seaweed) & akadashi (red soy bean paste soup)....1000 yen.

From the time we ordered to the time we got our food it did take some time, but considering they just opened at the beginning of the week, I think it is understandable.

Afterwards, Satoshi and I realized we didn't order anything with maguro or toro in!

We'll be back.

Yum, that looks tasty. I wish I could visit, I'd definitely go for the tuna though!

I 100% agree with you about the smoking (I wish it was banned in all restaurants though), it is absolutely my least favourite thing about Japan!!

Looks yummy, Kat! Worth a second visit :)

So funny that you both neglected to order what they specialize in. Good excuse to go back again though.
