Higashi-Funabashi : Sardine at Funakko after cold lemon ramen

After enjoying cold lemon ramen, we went back to our hometown, Chiba.

Ojima : Limited cold lemon ramen at Rinsuzu Shokudo (りんすず食堂)
Ice and lemon ramen is special tastes for Summer ! Recently it is muggy every day in Tokyo (Though I live in Chiba :P). I feel like eating cold foods in such a muggy air. I ate awesome sudachi so...
But we didn’t get off at our station.
He said he want to eat sardine at Funakko !

So, we went to Funakko nevertheless we visited there quite recently !

Higashi-Funabashi : Sardines specialty izakaya, Funakko
Now is best season for sardines. Sardines caught in Chiba area have high reputation. And such a high-level sardine dish can be eaten here, "Funakko". Well, I don't know whether they use sard...

We were already nearly full, so we ate some sardine foods only 🙂

It was around 8 p.m., there were many vacant seats though it is very popular izakaya.
I know it is nearly packed just after the opening time. Perhaps this is good time to visit Funakko because around Higashi-Funabashi station is nothing except Funakko 😛

Otoshi and my plum liquor with hot water(梅酒お湯割り).
I felt chill just a little in the train, so I ordered my drink hot, but she asked me again. Maybe she never thought there was someone who order something hot drink just after entering the shop such a muggy night 😛
Otoshi was boiled vegetables and had a big asari clam !

Young punctatus, bonito, greater amberjack and saury ! Saury ! Now is yet muggy summer, but Autumn fishes already come ! Yes ! Autumn is coming !
Everything was tasty though their specialty is sardine.

A look of their fishing around Funabashi harbor long long time ago. Their predecessors were fisher many decades ago.
They are professionals of judging good fishes ! So, they can serve good seafood like this !
