Kashigashira got easier to visit than ever

I asked to my friend to join his lunch at Kashigashira last Saturday and went to there !
Recently (after summer vacation ?), Kashigashira don’t have much guests compared with ever.
When I got to there before 5 minutes that day, there were only 8 people waiting in front of the door.
And two of them were in our group 😛

Street in front of Kashigashira also wasn’t packed.Still there were much people 🙂

But as soon as it was open, there were many people gathering in line along the stairs.

Well, we should go earlier all the same.

That day, we ordered chef’s choice, too.

Grilled Cyura Kinme’s head with salt (美らきんめのかぶとやき)

This Splendid alfosino was caught in Cyura (Okinawa), so it is called “Cyura Kinme”
(Kinme is short name of splendid alfosino in Japanese)

It was bigger than ordinary splendid alfosino that I usually see.

The eyes were eaten by two of my friends…. umm. disgusting ! (I felt so in silent..)

Four portion of sashimi was beautifully dished up as usual.
Octopus, chutoro, Spanish mackerel, Splendid alfosino, botan shrimp, scallop, blackthroat seaperche and so on. Everything was great.
The green things are botan shrimps’ eggs.
But,,, I need rice all the same and I want them on the rice. So, I want to have lunch during my work some time in this week 🙂

After that, we said good-bye to one of our friend and remains went to Turret coffee as usual.

Truthfully speaking, I wanted to have limited menu at Starbucks on our way to Turret coffee 😉
Chesnuts! I have to try soon !

We chatted a lot for a while and then went toward Kanda to eat Sanuki udon at a new buzzing shop.
