Finally, I had dinner at Miyakozushi (都寿司) in Bakuro Yokoyama the other day. They are one of the most popular sushi restaurant in Tokyo. So, it’s really hard to reserve.
Bakuroyokoyama is a business district, so, it was like a ghost town on Saturday evening. But this restaurant was filled to capacity that day by subscription. Of course we took a reservation. Their course is 13000 yen. At first, Boiled hosta montana was served. Hosta montana is wild plants. As you see, the soup is clear, but it had abundant tastes.
Sashimi. Geoduck clam was sweet.
Firefly squid. It had strong tastes of miso, but those firefly squids have more tastes.
I didn’t want to eat pickled miso again. Especially those monkfish liver was entirely inferior to the miso tastes. And, the tastes left on my tongue until finish eating.
Because the monkfish liver had strong tastes, I couldn’t find the flavor of it at all.
And then sushi time started. Gari is the sign of the time.
Miyakozushi always start their sushi time from Kohada and red sea bream.
Spanish mackerel. Its skin was baked with straw. So, it’s flavorful.
Kurumaebi. I like it best in all dishes that day. It’s springy and sweet.
Kinmedai. Because it was lightly grilled, the fat appeared the surface. Fatty and good. It went with mustard very well.
Rice can’t be seen. The sea urchin melted in my mouth soon.
We can choose salt or sauce for anago. And also we can choose both. The chef cut sushi into 2 pieces. Left was salt, and right was salty-sweet sauce. I tried, but I think we’d better choose one. Half sushi is not good.
It looked like clear soup. More taste of asari clam than miso tastes.
Last. Tamagoyaki. It was just like sweets. So, it was served last 🙂
They have high reputation as sushi restaurant in Tokyo and my friends love Miyakozushi very much. But to my sorrow, I wasn’t satisfied with their foods at all this time. And also my friend who love Miyakozushi said so, too. I’m unlucky ? Anyway, I will try this restaurant again !
