Last Kashigashira dinner 2014 for me

I had dinner at Kashigashira to welcome one of my acquaintance who came back to Japan from Salzburg.
Recently I usually go Kashigashira on Saturdays’ lunchtime and visiting there at night was after a long long interval.

It was night, so I had no appointment of dentist and I could drink alcoholic drinks freely 🙂

Highball and shijimi soup, Kashigashira (Tsukiji)


With shijimi clam soup (しじみ汁) that is said to be good for licorice 😀

At first, appetizer came.
From left, Capitulum mitella, dried young sardines and cabbage, and vinegared octopus and wakame seaweeds (亀の手, キャベツとしらす, わかめと蛸の酢の物).

That is healthy ! I love the texture of tuna’s skin 🙂 It’s like hard jelly.

A few nigiri was served at the beginnng of the dinner. This is the Kashigashira style 😀

なんかちょっと変わった貝殻のあさり・・・(*´д`*) 河岸頭に来ると毎回一つくらい見たことのないものに出会います(笑)

I haven’t seen such a corrugated shell. Ordinary asari clam have smooth shell.
Kashigashira often serves unfamiliar seafood like this 🙂

Grilled dried squid (いかの干物焼き)

      I was happy to be invited to the party. You already went to Kashigashira at lunchtime. But Kashigashira’s dinner is excellent, too 🙂
