“The best deep fried oyster in Japan”
Mostly deep fried oysters are served in cold season only.
Some restaurants serve it from October to April at the longest.
Yes, one of the shop is Odayasu in Tsukiji Market 😛
I heard that Odayasu serve deep fried oyster until June this year…
Even June is limit for the Odayasu serving deep fried oysters.
I heard there is a restaurant that serves deep fried oysters all year around !
The place is Nihonbashi.
And they use oysters from Akkeshi of Hokkaido that is so popular as big and excellent oysters !
If you love oysters, you cannot help going there and trying it 😀
Of course, we went to there. Needless to say, we love oysters.
The shop is on the 1st basement floor.
Akkeshi of Hokkaido, Nihonbashi Honten
We arrived at the shop more 20 minutes earlier, but the stairs were full with people waiting.
They have only one menu at lunchtime. Just deep fried oysters.
The lunch set menu is “The best deep fried oyster set in Japan” (日本一のカキフライ定食, 1000 yen) !
Everyone come to the restaurant for eating it.
Some of them might be there about one hour earlier before the opening.
On taking our seats, in the meantime, the waitress said to us, “We serve deep fried oysters only. Is that OK ?”
Basically, we have only to wait. After a while, our foods come on our table like this.
Second helpings of rice and miso soup is free of charge. But as you see, plenty of rice and soup come.
We can eat those deep fried oysters with tartar sauce, ponzu with yuzu pepper on the tray, Worcestershire sauce and salt with oyster flavor on the table.
I liked eating my oysters with ponzu with yuzu pepper best.
Huge ! Two oysters, this side are rather small, but another oysters that side are big.
Those were really big.
Those oysters taught me why oysters are called “Sea of milk”
So creamy and rich flavor.
How wonderful. We can enjoy such good deep fried oysters all year around.
