Firefly squid!

このお方は・・・(*´д`*)ほたるいかさん!

Wooow!!!!!

My delight !

Not many restaurants serve firefly squid as raw because they have many germs and not good to eat it as raw .
Only one way to kill the germs is to freeze them once. And then thaw it.

But it’s hard to thaw them with those good flavor remaining.

This firefly squids were, truthfully speaking, it’s watery all the same.
But I could enjoy it ! Within an allowance !

Pacific bluefin tuna. Beautiful color !

ホンマグロもステキな色(*´д`*)

*Okara croquette (おからのコロッケ) 600 yen

おからってパサパサして嫌いなんだけど、これはすごくしっとりとしておいしかった!しかしお腹にたまる~(ノ∀`)

“Okara” is tofu refuse. I hate okara because it had dry texture. But this croquette was wet and tasty !

*Young sweetfish tempura(稚鮎の天ぷら) 580 yen!

大阪でも稚鮎天!

I often eat it at Tenfusa in Tsukiji Market. I like it. I like eating it at Tenfusa.
But truthfully speaking, Hidezo’s young sweetfish tempura was far better than Tenfusa’s 😛
That’s great ! Those innards were bitter a bit and its meats were fatty.

*Raw yuba and sea urchin dressed with a thick amber color starchy sauce(生湯葉とうにのべっこうあんかけ) 580 yen
Gorgeous looking !

I love firefly squid all the same ! Though those were small, they have big “yummy” .

最後は鯖の棒ずし。なんだかハイカラなお寿司ですね(*´д`*)

Every foods are rather small. So, we could eat various foods ! If you are there by yourself, you’ll be enjoy some foods !
But there are still many foods that I want to try next time. I have to go there again… !
