At Zauo Fishing Boat Cafe in Shinjuku, you fish for your food, with hooks and lines. When you've nabbed one from the tank (it's not very deep) the waiter takes your catch into the kitchen and a few minutes later, you have a plate of sashimi or fried fish in front of you.
What does it say about us that we laughed when we noticed the recently filleted sea bream (snapper?) was still moving, right there on the plate, just the bones and a head and fins, and were not at all put off by it. The fish was feeling no pain, Terry said, and I had no reason to doubt him.
Zauo Fishing Boat Cafe is located at 3-2-9 Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku, inside the Washington Hotel, 1st Floor. Tel: 03-3343-6622
