New conger eels specialty restaurant opened.
Recently new eateries, restaurants and cafes opened at Tsukiji Outer Market.
One of those shops, Kichiya is conger eels specialty restaurant.
Kichiya is a branch of the popular eatery that is named Yoshino in Tsukiji Outer Market.
I went to Yoshino once a long time ago.
Wow, very new. Kichiya stand in front of the entrance of Tsukiji Market.
My friend is a regular customer, so we left everything to him. He ordered a special course.
Appetizer was Tuna salad (ツナサラダ). Of course, here was Tsukiji. The tuna was not canned !
Asparagus and daikon radish was dressed with tuna’s fat. Sooooo tasty 🙂
Assorted sashimi (刺身盛り合わせ).
My drink was oolong tea.
From left, sardines and bonito.
Light is grunt, left is flatfish. And flathead is this side.
Almost all dishes that I had had conger eels !
Assorted tempura (天ぷら盛り合わせ).
Conger eel, sea bream, eggplant, flatfish, mantis shrimps, and so on. Amazing taste. Those were crispy. Especially conger eel and mantis shrimps were excellent !
I liked those tempura in all dishes that I had then.
After finished drinking oolong tea, I felt like drinking something sweet.
Then, Plum wine (梅酒).
Cold chawanmushi (冷製茶わん蒸し).
Wooow ! Cold conger eel was tasty, too 🙂
Conger eel and eggplant rolls (穴子と茄子のぐるぐる巻き).
We eat it with Zanthoxylum piperitum and shichimi. It looked chewy ? No, it was spongy texture.
Also salads (サラダ) had conger eels !
Last, we could choice one meal from some meal menus. I wanted to eat conger eel tempura again, so I choiced this.
Baked conger eel and conger eel tempura on the rice.
Can you see a sand-grass and closed box in front of me ?
He was waiting for one minute. His conger eel was steamed sufficiency in the closed box.
Here, his conger eels looked so soft. Baka-duki (ばか月).
Miso soup with bony parts of a fish (あら汁).
Dessert. We could select one from chocolate ice cream and yuzu sorbet.
I chose chocolate ice cream (チョコレートアイス).
