Asakusa and Tsukiji Tokyo Restaurants

We're in Tokyo for 3 days staying in Asakusa. What restaurants would you recommend in the neighborhood in the budget to mid-priced range? Also, we're heading out to the Tsukiji fish market in the morning. Any suggestions for breakfast/lunch near the market? Thanks!

I heard that the following 3 sushi place in Tsukiji are open early (5-6am) and serve very good Tane. Sushidai, Sushibun and Daiwazushi. These restaurants are very very casual. They are all located in Jonai.

Can't remember the name but there is a good tempura restaurant only a few doors away form the temple gate at Asakusa. Daikokuya could be the name. You'll smell the fragrant sesame oil (which I believe must be a sign of quality, fresh oil?). Aside from that, there are so many nibbles along the temple promnade--fresh rice crackers and green tea soft cream etc, etc.

we ate at that tempura place and it is GOOD - u have to ask though which one it is (it's in the lonely plant guide and it's right on the corner but no english so we had to be pointed to it
if u like tempura, don't miss this one!

second sushizanmai. also since you are staying in asakusa, try maguro hito, just down from the koban(police box) at the big red lantern. just ask the policeman, and i'm sure he knows the way to maguro hito, an excellent kaiten sushi restaurant. good value.

btw, lots of good tempura, unagi, soba restaurants in the asakusa area. itadaki masu.
