Highly popular and recommended, we arrived at Umegaoka Sushi no Midori about half hour before its opening time of 11am to be met by a long queue. Thank goodness the restaurant was big and we managed to secure the first seating. There are many sushi sets at Midori. For assortment sushi, three sets offered at 2,000 yen, 2,500 yen and 2,800 yen. We went for the last option as we were hungry bunnies. What a spread! The sushi sets were served on large wooden platters and came with Chawanmushi, Miso Soup, Crab Paste Salad and Miso Soup.
Each sushi piece was of a generous size, almost double a regular sushi piece and the fish slices were very thick. The pieces that stood out were the otoro, the shrimp (it was sweet!), and conger eel sushi.
A huge filling set! Knocked us out.
Midori also offers seasonal side sushi. They were displayed outside the restaurant.
And there were a surprising high number of Japanese dining there. A high number of wealthy Japanese Obasans (as could be told from their diamonds.)
