Torafugu Tei is a famous restaurant with many locations in Tokyo that specializes in one of Japan's most iconic delicacy: the fugu, or blowfish. What's more, their specialty is not just any kind of fugu, but the most exquisite breed of the deadly fish, the torafugu, or tiger blowfish. The restaurant has tanks from which they take the fish in order to make the freshest sashimi possible. Another popular dish at Torafugu Tei is the torafugu hotpot. Here are the things you should probably order to have an amazing dining experience.
Oyogitessa is the famous sashimi of the torafugu. This is the must-try item. The sashimi pieces are sliced so thinly by the master chef that they are translucid.
Unlike most other kinds of sashimi which are eaten with soy sauce, the torafugu sashimi is served at Torafugu Tei with a refined type of homemade ponzu sauce (a savory sauce which has a citrusy taste that comes from yuzu lemon juice). The delicate combination of flavors is just perfect.
