Kashigashira’s special treat !
I was looking forward to have a dinner at Kashigashira again.
And my wish came true. My friend asked me to join the dinner party 😀
On arriving at Kashigashira, such a welcome message was waiting for us 🙂
First of all, antipasto came.
Grated yam, and yam dressed with ume sauce (山芋をすったのと、千切りを梅で和えたもの)
Deep fried eggplant without breading or butter in clear soup (なすのおひたし)
oysters dressed with ponzu (牡蠣をぽん酢で)
Sea cucumber (なまこ)
This was the first time to eat sea cucumber. I found it have funny texture ! It was difficult for me to catch the sea cucumber with chopsticks!
Then Nigiri (にぎり) came. Pickled tuna with homemade sauce, salted and vinegared mackerel. I felt the marinated tuna was not better than last time. Last time’s marinated tuna was great.
Raw oysters from Ako (赤穂の生牡蠣)
Oyster came again !
Steamed razor clam with sake (マテ貝の酒蒸し)
What is razor clam ? I didn’t know the existence. But I found it is long clam like pen and the taste was very nice.
Grilled chin of tuna (マグロのアゴ焼き)
Every time I eat it, I feel like eating with rice … 😛
Boiled burdock with zanthoxylum fruit(ごぼうの山椒煮)
I deleted the picture by mistake :(.
Turnip boiled in crab soup with a thick starchy sauce (かぶのかにあんかけ)
It was boiled until it is soft.
Sardine balls (いわしのつみれ)
Assorted sashimi (お刺身盛り合わせ)
From silver one on left, chicken grunt,Pacific herring,American butterfish,kelp bass, largehead hairtail,kichiji rockfish, horse mackerel and Armored weasel-fish. And toro of tuna at the center of the dish. Kelp bass was best for me, but they were all tasty.
Soft roe of cod tempura was soft and melted in my mouth (たらの白子天ぷら)
Boiled conger eel in soy sauce (煮穴子)
The conger eel was grilled once before boiling.
Sea bream rice.
That day’s leading part !!!
Lots of seafood ingredients. Asari clam, scallops, round clam, oyster and shrimp.
We gathered at Kashigashira for this curry 😀 Delicious. Extremely good !
