Before the move of the world’s largest wholesale fish and seafood market to Toyoso in November 2016, I took a chance to enjoy another nice lunch while it remains in its convenient location in the center of Tokyo. This time, I am not going to any of the 24/7 sushi restaurants nor the ones that are crowded with foreign tourists. I prefer somewhere nice and quiet with good quality of food and service.
I have an eye on one of the best rating rice bowl restaurants: Aozora Sandaime, a low key Japanese restaurant with no queue outside during lunch time. But was full house and there was a small queue inside the restaurants. Filled with local Japanese which is a good sign. 我做了點調查，看中這家網上好評的魚生專門店：築地青空三代目。午飯時間外面沒有長龍，但裏面是客滿，還有一條小隊，都是日本人，應該很不錯。
There is a bar counter outside, looking like a drinking bar where customers can eat, drink and smoke at night. 進入餐廳有兩部份，外面是一個長酒吧檯，看似晚上居酒屋格局的吸煙區。
There is a small red bridge connecting to the main room, creating a special environment. 內堂要經過這條小拱橋，有特色。
The menu was extensive with a lot of choices. The restaurant recommended this set which is available at lunch only. ¥2,700 for 8 pieces of sushi and a small bowl of seafood rice. Sure! I took the recommendation. 餐牌有很多選擇，餐廳建議這個午餐限定套餐，¥2,700 有8款手握壽司和一小碗魚生飯。店長推介，當然要試試。
One of the best way to enjoy Japanese food is to sit at the counter, watching the chef hand make sushi in front of you. 吃魚生飯最佳享受是坐在師傅前面看著他親手做新鮮手握壽司。
Delicate sushis are served one by one. Egg rolls on the right and middle-cut tuna on the right with a sprinkle of lemon skin. Adding lemon flavor to tuna is very refreshing. 精美的手握壽司是一件一件手握的，右邊的是吞拿魚身中部，上面有少許檸檬絲，食入口有檸檬的香味。左邊是玉子壽司。
Uni (sea urchin) on squid is an interesting combination, complementing the taste of each other. The chef will remind you not to dip soy sauce to taste the original flavor. 海膽加鮮魷魚，上佳的配搭，重點是師傅會提醒你不要沾醬油，直接品嚐新鮮原味。口感和味道都一流！
Grilled Spanish Mackerel sushi. 烤西班牙鯖魚壽司。
Grilled octopus sushi. 烤八爪魚壽司。
The chef will put a new sushi on the plate in front of you after you finished the last one, ensuring the freshness of the sushi served. This is a sea eel sushi. 廚師會等你一件件吃完，才放另一件在你面前的碟子上，確保新鮮。這是燒海鰻壽司。
The mixed seafood small rice bowl. 魚生小碗飯。
The sashimi rice bowl is not a traditional one. There is an egg yolk and dried small fish. It tastes really good when you mixed it with the rice! Highly recommended. 不要少看這小碗精緻的魚生飯，上面有一個蛋黃、乾小魚，和其他新鮮魚生拌起來吃，味道豐富，很滋味！
