Nakajima 800yen lunch in shinjuku(1 michelin star)

I recently went to Nakajima so that I could try a Michelin rated restaurant on the cheap. Their dinner is kaiseki syle and I believe starts around 8000yen. The lunch menu features 4 or 5 versions of iwashi sardines. All 800 yen. まじで?  I got sashimi and my companion got fry. You can also get shioyaki and iwashi cooked with eggs. They go through 20kilos of iwashi every lunch day. It was delicious, very carefully prepared. So fresh, it was as if the iwashi was swimming through the air and accidentally went into your mouth. You can see the food and some other restaurants I went to in this video.

This video also shows me eating delicious saba mackrel sushi at the famous izuu (Iduu) In Kyoto. It's very cheap too.
