There are many breakfast/lunch restaurants in and around Tsukiji fish market. My old office was at Tsukiji and we would go eat at these restaurants daily. Most of the places that I went to were for people working at the market not tourist, but at TSUKIJI ITADORI UOGASHI-SENRYO everyone came to eat.

Tsukiji Itadori Uogashi-Senryo is actually a sushi restaurant, but it is famous for its one lunch item. GANSO KAISEN HITSUMABUSHI (Mix seafood bowl) for 2,100 yen, which 99% of the people eat. Maguro, (Tuna), Ikura (Salmon Roe), Uni (Sea Urchin) and 3 other fishes (catch of the day) are cut into small pieces over rice. It looks like Chirashi sushi (assorted sushi bowl), but the way you eat it is different. There are three ways of eating it. (the employees at the restaurant will show you how to eat it, if you don't know)

First bowl, you want to put Uni (sea urchin) aside and mix it a little and add wasabi & soy sauce.

Next bowl, the waiter/waitress will add Uni (sea urchin) and mix it well for you. Add a little wasabi & soy sauce, if you like.

The last bowl, add fish broth over it and have it as a Ochazuke (rice with broth or green tea).

If you want there is regular sushi as well, but I strongly recommend to have the above since you can't have it anywhere else.

One of the most famous TV gourmet reporters said this is by far his favorite way of eating raw fish with rice and it is one of mine as well. Only problem is that the portion is fairly small for men like me.
