Just a stone's throw from the Tokyo fish market, Takeno Shokudo is a rough-cut neighborhood restaurant that tends to fill up at noon with the market's wholesalers and auctioneers and personnel from the nearby Asahi newspaper offices. There's nothing here but the freshest and the best—big portions of it, at very reasonable prices. Sushi and sashimi are the staples, but there's also a wonderful tendon bowl, with shrimp and eel tempura on rice. Prices are not posted
because they vary with the costs that morning in the market. Reservations can only be made for large parties, or if you plan to dine before 6:30 pm.
