Early summer is a season of pike conger and flathead !

We visited Ginza Shimada again !
This was the third time to visit there. I finally could go there without getting lost 😛
It stands by the narrow back of the street. So, if you go there first, you’ll be unable to find the izakaya easily.

Basically,it’s stand-up-eating shop, but we took a reservation of only four seats in advance and went to there.

My drink was Japanese sake !

It seemed to be overdone…. 😛

Sea urchin with spiny lobster jelly (ウニの伊勢海老ジュレがけ) 1600 yen

Umm. Certainly it was tasty, but the jelly didn’t have much taste of spiny lobster.in stead of that,it tasted bonito stock.But the sea urchin was sweet and good.
Perhaps, now cathing spiny lobsters is forbidden, they might be unable to get spiny lobsters at good price.

Kuruma prawn and lily root kakiage (車海老と百合根のかきあげ) 1400 yen

I didn’t take the picture, but we ate soba with mullet roe last. (Umm. I must have taken it. But my camera don’t have the picture remain…)

What we order every time was not good that day, but seasonal foods like pike conger and flathead was awesome!

I wanna go there soon without reservation and use table for stand-up-eating.
