Precious very young punctatus eaten during only early summer !

I could go to Miyakozushi earlier than I had expected. It’s so difficult to reserve because it was too popular and there aren’t many seats in the restaurant.
The ground cherry is very nice 🙂

Appearance, Miyakozushi (Bakuro-Yokoyama)


We ordered chef’s choice course that cost us 15000 yen that time, too.

At first, some appetizers came.
We didn’t ordered any alcoholic drinks, so hot green tea came. And boiled green soybean (edamame, 枝豆).
Edamame that go with beer very well said “Why don’t you have alcoholic drinks ?” and laughed us 😛

Whelk from Kushiro and sole from Aomori (釧路のツブ貝と青森の平目). The edge of sole was good, too 😀

When very young gizzard shad in the market, it’s said that grown-up gizzard shad is beter, too.
Actually, this gizzard shad was great ! This was the best gizzard shad I have had ever.

Sea Bream (Madai, 真鯛)

It’s texture was good 🙂

Bonito (Katsuo, 鰹)

Bonito, Miyakozushi (Bakuro-Yokoyama)


The bonito was good, but it was grilled with strawa straw. And it had strong smell of strawa straw burnt.
This smell disturbed the flavor of bonito a bit.

Marinated lean meat of tuna with soy sauce sauce (まぐろのヅケ)

It was well marinated. Its surface was smooth 🙂

Chu-toro (中トロ)

Every foods in the chef’s choice course that time was not fatty except it (Because not in Summer ?).
So I could feel the taste of that fat well.

Golden cuttlefish (Sumi-ika, すみいか)

The kuruma prawn was still warm. Awesome ! its innard and meat was delicious.

Conger eel (Anago, 穴子)
We can choice the seasoning between salt and sauce.
I selected my conger eel with sauce that time.

Uh, so good. The meat was so soft and the sauce went with the meat well.

Sweet tamagoyaki (玉子焼き) as dessert, maybe.

A, I usually say that I hate sweet foods, but sweet tamagoyaki is no problem 🙂 It’s like cake 😀

Asari soup (あさり汁)

Asari soup, Miyakozushi (Bakuro-Yokoyama)


It was seasoned with little miso. Basically, it’s soup stock had strong taste of dried bonito, so it don’t need much miso.

Though I wanted to order second helping of sea urchin, I was already stuffed 😛

I’m wondering when I can go there again… I wanna eat Autumn fish there ….
