The star of the restaurant!

Nice face, isn’t it?

During our last visit to Atami City, at the eastern end of Shizuoka Prefecture, we decided to try Sushi Chu Restaurant, a very traditional place like they don’t do anymore!
It can be a busy place especially on weekends both with Japanese and foreign tourists!

You will be asked if you want to eat lunch in the normal style, for which you will be invited to sit at the counter or if you want to order the sushi donburi/bowls, in which case you will sit at a table.
The donburi sets are great at lunch. We decided to order both!

I ordered the “Jyou Kaisen Don/Superior seafood bowl” which includes local seafood and more from other parts of Japan!

Of course Dragon expected to share that!

From another angle!

As for Dragon, she ordered “Jizakana Kaisen Don/Local fish Bowl”!

From another angle!

All local seafood including shirasu/sardine whiting and Sakuraebi/Cherry Shrimps”!

The servings are big enough to satisfy you without stuffing yourself. The food is authentic and very reasonabkle for the quality!
