Takamaru Fishmonger No.3 (タカマル鮮魚店 3号館) is one of 3 Takamaru Fishmonger spots in Shinjuku. They’re all highly rated so it doesn’t matter which one you go to. You’ll get great value for your money…hills of mouth-watering seafood / sushi.
Not only is Takamaru Fishmonger affordable – the decor is spectacular – a Japanese fisherman’s dining hall, if you will. Overall, it’s a great experience for visitors to Shinjuku.
It’s a 2 floor fish palace. From the menu below, I ordered “Blue Flash” – second row, second from the left. It includes buri, shimesaba. aji, nama shirasu, and sawara. You can literally throw a dart of any one of these and have an amazing time, just in case there’s a language barrier.
As the above pic, you also get a fishy miso soup, with grilled fish chunks.
I heard their crab cream croquettes (カニクリームコロッケ) were fantastic. I heard right. The kraken was released, crab legs and all.
Fresh fish can be bought at the 1st floor.
If you’re visiting Tokyo and are in Shinjuku, Takamaru Fishmonger is a worthwhile visit, especially if you’re into sushi / seafood.
