The Street Food of Tsukiji’s Outer Market

The famous tuna auction and inner market of Tsukiji may now be a thing of the past, but the site’s outer market is as vibrant as ever. Many of the outer-markets food stalls and restaurants are continuing to run just as they always have, so if you’re in the mood for food, street style, sit down or even sushi, Tsukiji is still the place to go.

    The only way to properly kick-start a morning exploring the wider Tsukiji area is with a visit to Turret Coffee. Named after the small ‘turret’ tracks that zoom through Tsukiji’s market laneways, this hole in the wall coffee shop has been serving some of the best espressos in the city since 2013.

  • Bread Studio Ru Pan

    Bread Studio Ru Pan

    For a light breakfast snack on the go, pop by Bread Studio Ru Pan (also known as Pan Kobo Ru Pan). This small, laid-back bakery serves a selection of fresh based bread-centric staples, but the local favorite is the anko croissant a crisp, buttery croissant filled with ‘anko’ a sweet red bean paste.

    Kibun

    If you’re on the hunt for a real street style snack that blends Japanese cuisine with western tastes and throws any notion of healthy eating out the window, head to Kibun, a food stand where all your guilty pleasure fantasies come true. Here you’ll find an array of fried snacks all with English descriptions. One of the most highly recommended menu staples here is the chikuwa cheese stick, a mix of ‘chikuwa’ (chewy fish cake) fried with cheese.

  • Marutoyo Onigiri

    Marutoyo Onigiri

    These days onigiri (rice balls) are most commonly seen on the illuminated cool-shelves of the convenience store, but this is the real deal. Sink your teeth (literally) in the culinary history of Japan’s snack food culture by visiting the old style stall Marutoyo Onigiri. On sale, you’ll find onigiri of all different shapes, sizes, and flavor combinations.

  • Tsukiji Shouro

    Tsukiji Shouro

    Tsukiji Shouro

    A Tsukiji Market icon, Tsukiji Shouro draws a hefty crowd every single day thanks to their uncanny mastery of the perfect tamagoyaki (fried egg). The most popular menu item here is ‘Shouro Sand’ (omelet sandwich), which sells out early in the day. If you don’t make it in time, ‘tamagogushi’ (fried egg on a stick) is a very worthy consolation prize.

    Tsukiji Ebi Kin

    For something a little heartier than market stall snacks, hunt out Tsukiji Ebi Kin for some shrimp ramen with a side of crispy ‘gyoza’ (fried Japanese dumplings). Especially welcoming for foreign guests, the staff here are more than happy to explain the menu to you. If you’re still hungry once you’ve eaten your noodles, pass your bowl to the chef who will create a shrimp potage by adding fresh rice to the leftover ramen broth for free.

Surrounded by oversized signs displaying the colorful menu options available, the most challenging thing about visiting Tsukiji Sushi Ichiban is deciding what to eat.

    Harenohi Shokudo

    Yakitori, tamagoyaki, snacks on sticks are a ubiquitous sight here at Tsukiji market, so it’d practically be a crime not to try one out. For something a little different, hop over to Harenohi Shokudo a stall which serves up the unlikely combination of uni (sea urchin) and scallop. It may not be the most beautiful dish to look at, but it’s deceptively tasty.

    Kitsune Ya

    Warm, hearty chunks of stewed beef and onion piled atop a bed of freshly boiled, steamy rice, ‘gyudon’ is the ultimate soul food, and Kitsune Ya is where to find it. For something extra special ask for the ‘horumondon’, a belly warming combination of beef entrails, egg, onion, and rice.

    Tsukiji Soratsuki

    By the time you’ve done a lap of the market, you’re probably bursting at the seams. However, there’s always space for sweets, or at least space in your bag to take some home. Tsukiji Soratsuki is home to the market’s popular sweet, strawberry daifuku a mochi (rice) dumpling filled with anko and topped with a strawberry.
