Tsukiji Market : Butterfish at Kato (和食かとう)

sponsored link

Kato’s great Saikyo miso.

Summer holidays are being close to an end. So, today,’s Tsukiji didn’t have so much people around 7 a.m.
I went to the 8th bldg. of Tsukiji Market that have Yonehana, Torito, Sushibun and so on and found almost all eateries didn’t have people waiting except Oedo and Nakaya that is sashimi bowl shop.

Also our target, Kato did..

夏休みも終わりが近づいたせいでしょうか。今日の築地はそんなに人がいませんでした。私たちのお目当て「かとう」も(^^)

I ordered a grilled butter fish marinated in Saikyo miso (マナガツオ西京焼, 1500yen) that I intended to eat from yesterday.

時期がちょっとズレてるな、とは思ってたのですが、前日からマナガツオを食べると決めていました(`・ω・´)

I know this is out of season now (The best season is from Spring to early summer), but anyway, I wanted to eat it because it looked tasty at my friend’s blog !

さすが英語名、butterfish。こってり脂がジュワーッ!以前からこの西京味噌を買って帰りたいと思っているのですが・・・

Kato sell this Saikyo miso for cooking it at home, so, someday I want to buy it !

Eating it with daikon radish was refreshing.

Kato will not move to new Toyosu Market and quit their business. So, I don’t have much time to say such a thing. I’ll go there and buy it soon.

This is not set menu. So, I ordered separately set (定食, 450 yen).
Pickles, miso soup, boiled foods were good, too.
Maybe, you can’t find the difference between two white things, rice and grated daikon radish.
The grated daikon radish is eaten with the butterfish.

このメニューにはごはん等はついてないのでプラス450円払って定食にしてもらいます。おしんこもおいしい。手前は大根おろしです。

This is the assorted sashimi having five species of seafood (お刺身5点盛り, 2500 yen).
Tuna, squid, vinegared horse mackerel, sea urchin and red sea bream.

Gorgeous assort !
Especially the squid was soft and sweet. Maybe it was squid’s baby called “Shin-ika”.
The vinegared horse mackerel was slightly vinegared. I couldn’t find the vinegar taste. Why I found it is “vinegared” was because the meat slightly became white.

After that we got out of the market and walked around shops street. And then we had coffee at this Yonemoto Coffee Shinten.
