This morning, we explored Tsujiki Fish Market. Each morning, boats from all over the world (even as far as Africa) dock here, unload their catch and auction them off to the fish mongers. The fish mongers then sell them to the various restaurants here. Good restaurants in Vancouver will often sell sushi and sashimi from this particular market for exorbitant prices. Many tourists come here but it really isn't a tourist spot as you can get splattered with fishy water.
Next to the fish market are sushi restaurants where fish is literally carried over from the market. The Husband and I saw one particular restaurant with a long line outside and decided that those people must know something we didn't, so we got in line as well. The sushi was amazing! Tasted like nothing we've had before because of how fresh it was.
