First bonito season again.Don’t miss out !

I felt like fresh sashimi and headed to Tsukiji at lunch time during work hour the other day.
Before mid-summer season come, I want to eat at Tsukiji at lunchtime at as much as I can, Especially Hajime Sengyo-ten

That day’s lunch menu had three type bowls.
* Marinated Pacific bluefin tuna bowl containing chu-toro (生本まぐろ漬け丼(中トロ入り))
* First bonito bowl from Kagoshima (鹿児島 初かつお丼)
* Young sand lance bowl from Aichi (愛知 生小女子丼)

Hajime Sengyo-ten’s lunchtime is from 11:30 a.m. But as soon as ingredients are out, lunchtime is finished. (It says he serve 20 lunch set only, but strictly speaking, her serve more portions.)

OH MY ! Bright pink-color ! I had seen dark red bonito meat only before I met Tsukiji.
I sometimes can’t find the difference between bonito and tuna as its looking.

I won’t get tired of eating such a fresh sashimi everyday… But Hajime Sengyo-ten is far from my office ….

First bonito can be eaten this season only. So you should go there soon if you are in Tokyo now!

Shijimi clam was my delight as ingredient of miso soup ! Hajime Sengyo-ten serve miso-soup with shijimi clam so frequently. So this is another reason that I like this shop !
