Last boiled monk fish at Katou

March will be end soon, and I should eat foods that can be eaten during cold season only now.

So, I ate boiled monk fish as breakfast at Katou in Tsukiji !
I went to there before 7 a.m., and there were few people there 🙂 I could take seat with easily contrary to last time 🙂

I found Spring at Tsukiji Market :) Spring is steadily coming. Also here Tsukiji Market, too. Cherry salmon Firefly squid And my delight Young sweetfish ! Tenfusa has started to deal wi...

Then I saw menus hanging on the wall.
The word “Boiled monk fish (あんこう煮) “. There was ! (I want to eat left oyster hotpot, too :p)

Menus, Katou (Tsukiji Market)

本格的に暖かくなる前に、かとうであんこう煮を食べてきました!

The price got 200 yen higher than last time. The menu says the monk fish from Hokkaido.

Tsukiji Market : Boiled anglerfish with soy sauce
Winter tastes. I went to eat Boiled anglerfish with soy sauce (あんこう煮, 1800 yen) at Katou in Tsukiji Market the other day. I already ate anglerfish at Takahashi(高はし) last November this season....

At first, I thought there’s no one except me who eat hot boiled monk fish such a warm day. But a man next to me ordered it, too 🙂 Yes, monk fish can’t be eaten during warm season.
I waited for 15 minutes or so, then my boiled monk fish (あんこう煮, 2100 yen) was served.

15分くらいでやってきた、あんこう煮定食。

By the way, Katou don’t move to new Toyosu market (maybe they’ll quit their business), so this will be the last time to have boiled monk fish at katou for me.

Though also Takahashi serve boiled monk fish, Katou’s one is seasoned quit stronger than Takahashi’s.

Tsukiji Market, Oshiage : Takahashi and Tokyo skytree (高はし, 東京スカイツリー)

So, it go with rice very much 🙂

あんきも。卵も入ってましたよ。

I have to say. If you want to visit this shop, you should order in Japanese. There’s no English menus. And they don’t accept English words at all…
The lady refused a man who can’t speak Japanese. In case you can’t speak Japanese, bring memo what you want to eat in Japanese and show the staff. Or showing my blog is good, too :p If she understand what you want to eat, she’ll manage to help you.

I think Kato is quite difficult for tourists from abroad among shops in Tsukiji. First of all, it isn’t tourist friendly shop :p (Though they don’t reject tourists…) But Katou might serve the most traditional Japanese breakfast in Tsukiji market.

I sometimes have coffee at Yonemoto coffee Shinten after breakfast when I have enough time. Truthfully speaking, I want to go to Turret Coffee. But it is opposite direction of my office.
There’s head shop of Yonemoto Coffee along Harumi street, but this “Shinten” (it means newer) is larger than head shop. And also they have smoking section.

食後、時間があれば米本珈琲に行ったりします。喫煙席があるのでたばこ吸う人にはいいと思います。

Mostly I have cafe latte at there.
