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 🙂
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).
I felt so hungry and I ate it up so quickly 😛
Vinegared tuna’s skin and cucumber (鮪の皮をきゅうりの酢の物)
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 😀
Marinated tuna with soy sauce and young punctatus (まぐろの漬けとコハダの握り)
Grated daikon soup with oysters (牡蠣みぞれがけ)
So tasty. Umm. But wait. I didn’t eat oyster ! X(
Boiled cod with soy sauce (たら煮)
Springy texture !
Steamed asari clam (あさりの酒蒸し)
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)
Well, if I come to Kashigashira, I can’t help having Japanese sake !
Assorted sashimi (刺し盛り)
Kashigashira always serves beautiful sashimi like jewels 🙂
Kashigashira’s specialty ! Grilled tuna’s chin (鮪のアゴ焼き)
Squid’s legs tempura (いかげその天ぷら)
So happy that I could eat squid’s leg. My tooth couldn’t bite anything hard foods half a year ago.
Last, red sea bream rice (鯛めし)
No, no, no. It’s not the end.
Grilled blackthroat seaperch (アカムツの塩焼き) as our last dish ! Oh my !
Thanks to my friend who’s regular customer of Kashigashira, we could eat it in special. So fatty and tasty. I needed another rice !
