One of several "meat bars" located in this stretch of Asakusabashi, Nikuzushi offers a wide variety of meat-topped sushi and a decent selection of sake to go with it. Sushi by the piece comes with toppings like Iberico pork, foie gras, teriyaki chicken, beef tongue, and wagyu sukiyaki - all cooked - but there are also assortments of raw chicken and horsemeat if you're feeling adventurous.

Nikuzushi's signature torisashi platter is particularly recommended - very thinly sliced, fatty cuts of beef short ribs, seared with a blowtorch at your table and seasoned with salt and pepper. English-language menus are available. Budget around Y2500 for food and drink at dinnertime.
