We met Ebisu-dai, a kind of sea bream
Recently whenever I feel like visiting Kashigashira , I ask one of my friend who is regular customer to reserve seats in advance.
Of course, that day, too 🙂
At lunchtime, they prepare lunch menus, but I eat chef’s choice every time thanks to the regular customer 🙂
As same as Chef’s choice at Yonehana, I can’t know what is served to us until foods are served… Sometime they serve unknown fish… 🙁
The manager prepared strange fish for us that day, too.
The fish is named “Ebisu-dai”. “Dai” is sea bream. “Ebisu” is god of wealth. As its name, it is good-luck food eaten New Year and so on.
…. I was explained by my friend so. I didn’t know this fish. There are so many kinds of sea bream that I don’t know yet.
It didn’t have much meats to eat. Almost all bones. But the meat was juicy and flavory.
They got fresh raw young sardines (生しらす) and served them to us, too 🙂
Plum-flavored soy sauce on it.
Assorted sashimi (刺し盛り) ! Of course ! Our lunchtime at Kashigashira is not end until we eat sashimi !
Horse mackerel, blackthroat seaperch, longtooth grouper, octopus, tuna, middle-sized yellowtail (called “warasa”) and so on.
Because there were so many people waiting in front of the door, so, we got out of Kashigashira as soon as we finished eating.
And then I left them and went to Turret coffee by myself.
My friend’s Turret latte (big one) and my cafe latte🙂
Now I said I went to there by myself. Yes. But while waiting my coffee served at the counter table, my friend came in and called me.
So I moved to tatami seat and chatted with him. And then another my acquaintances came in the cafe one after another !
Oh my ! Everyone gathering Tsukiji and Turret coffee !
I intended to stay the cafe for 10 minutes or so, but I stayed there over one hour after all !
