吉弥は波除稲荷神社の向かいあたりにあります。

まずはドリンクでカンパイ。私のはレモンサワー。あたりまえだけど、すっぱい!

Then tiny bowls were served. Vinegared conger eel, conger eel jelly and conger eel and mozuku seaweed.

We took a dinner course (about 5000 yen). Of course, Kichiya serve dishes having conger eel. Everything !

季節がばれる(ノ∀`) まずは小付。全部穴子を使っています。酢の物やもずく、煮凝り。

Conger eel sashimi (穴子の洗い、湯引き、昆布締め)
Three styles of conger eel sashimi.
Arai (washed), Yubiki (exposed in warm water quickly) and Konbu jime (sandwiched with konbu seaweed for a while)
Conger eels’ sashimi is rarely eaten because it gets old quickly. So, it’s precious opportunity !

Minced conger eel ball (穴子真丈 山葵 銀あん)

Densuke Anago conger eel (伝助穴子 白焼き 黄身焼き 肝を添えて)
Salted grilled conger eel, grilled conger eel with yolk sauce and its liver.
“Densuke Anago” is a kind of conger eel and it’s precious kind. It’s huger than another conger eel. This was the first time to eat Densuke Anago.

ウワサの伝助穴子。大きいらしいです。ふっくらしておいしかった。

Conger eel Tempura (穴子天婦羅)
It was so crisp. And Conger eel in its inside was soft 🙂

サクサクの天ぷら。穴子はホワホワ。

Conger eel Uzaku-style salad (穴子うざく風サラダ)
Uzaku originally means cucumber and eel.

なんておしゃれなうざく(風)!

Last, meal was served.
Conger eel Bakashi (穴子のばかし)
Bakashi means “deceive”.
It looks like eel box (unajyu). But it’s not eel, but conger eel.
Eel is more fatty than conger eel. So, this conger eel box had refreshing tastes than eel box.But its meat was soft and tasty 🙂
I managed to eat it up. But I was full !

最後はばかしでシメ。ちょっと小ぶりですが、ここまで十分食べているので、これでも食べるのに四苦八苦/(^o^)\

Yuzu sorbet (柚子のシャーベット)
It had refreshing tastes ! The flavor of yuzu was awesome.

最後は柚子シャーベットでさっぱり。

Reservation is required in advance if you want to have dinner course, but you can enter the restaurant without reservation if you want to have simple dinner. But sometime they have full reservation, so, you’d better ask in advance if you visit there from distant area.

  1. お料理は美味しい!と思うのですが・・・

    和食のお店であれば、お客さんが右利きか、左利きかを
    観察して、それに合わせて配膳や盛り付けも左右を変える
    という気遣いが欲しいですね。

      さすが、つきじろうさん、鋭い視点・・・!
      長いこと左利きやってますが(笑)、いままで、その辺を気を配ってくれたのは、すぎた(都寿司)だけですね(^_^;)
