I thought that the best season of oysters is winter, but I learned that we can eat both Crassostrea nippona and Pacific oyster at “Oyster bar” all year around.
That’s great !
Of course, my first oyster bar stands in Tsukiji 🙂
I had wanted to go to the shop. I’m very happy that my wish came true.
“Chika” means underground in Japanese. As its name, the shop is on the underground in a building.
It never seems “Oyster bar”. It looks like izakaya under the guardrail in Shinbashi 😛
Anyway, we sat down and ordered our drinks. My drink was Japanese sake. Though I forgot its name (because I got drunk heavily), it was tasty.
*Crubs, salted ikura and Laminaria ochotensis dressed with ponzu (本ズワイガニ、塩いくら、利尻昆布のぽん酢和え) 680 yen
How gorgeous ! Ikura have fabulous looking ! With ikura, every dishes looks gorgeous !
This dish is so popular among people because of its nice looking.
At Chika-no-iki, we can eat oysters that caught in many places.
That day, oysters came from Otsuchi, Kashimanada, Noshiro, Choshi, Tsurumi, Amano Hashidate, Ise Shima and so on.
But first of all, you should order this set 🙂
*Today’s recommended oysters set (本日のおすすめの食べ比べセット) 1300 yen (3 portions)
It is a valuable set. This set have three oysters from some places.
Then, we wanted to eat oysters grilled, so we ordered Shizugawa oysters again.
*Grilled oysters from Shizugawa. (志津川の牡蠣の素焼き) 360 yen plus 50 yen
Ah,,, I like the Shizugawa oyster grilled better than as it was raw 🙂
