Speaking of breakfast and lunch in Kanazawa, Omicho Market is MUST at least once during your trip. So, we had breakfast at there. Unexpectedly there was no snow during my trip in Winter, but finally snow fell in the last morning.
Omicho market is similar to Tsukiji Market in Tokyo. There’re always lots of people and people buy fresh foods. But that day, it wasn’t many people because of such a weather and it was weekday just after New Year’s holiday.
After we walked around Omicho market, we reaehed to Morimorizushi Omicho branch. It’s very popular sushi-go-round restaurant in Omicho Market.
Morimorizushi have many branch in all over Japan.But this Omicho branch might be the most popular branch because Kanazawa have head shop of Morimorizushi and this Omicho branch is at the center of Omicho market in Kanazawa.
There’s an automatic reception in front of the door for busy time.
But there were many vacant seats that time, so we entered the shop without using the machine.
Morimorizushi is located at the center of Omicho Market.
This restaurant is larger compared with another restaurants in the market.
At first, I picked tea cup and pour into hot water and green tea powder.
I like fine sushi dinner, but also like filling my stomach with inexpensive and good sushi at sushi-go-round restaurant, too 🙂
At first, we ordered it. Omicho Santen-mori (近江町三点盛り, 500 yen)
“Santen” means three. “mori” is “dish up”. There’re three sushi that is their specialty of the day. It’s valuable dish. So I recommend you order it anyway when you are at a loss what to order.
That day, it had chu-toro, tobikko (flying fish roe) and nodoguro(blackthroat seaperch). Nodoguro is precious fish caught in Hokuriku area.
Sweet shrimp (甘エビ, 380 yen)
Shrimps that can be eaten in Kanazawa was delicious all the same 🙂
Gasu shrimp (Gasuebi / がすエビ, 470 yen)
can’t be eaten our living area. It lose its freshness so quickly. So, we have to go Hokuriku area if we want to eat fresh gasu shrimp. As you see, it had sticky texture and was good.
Omakase assorted sashimi (おまかせお造り, 1200 yen)
Firefly squid Gunkan-maki (ほたるいか軍艦巻き, 260 yen)
Speaking of Hokuriku area like Kanazawa, I imagine more firefly squid than blackthroat seaperch and Kobako crab because it’s my delight.
Firefly squid marinated in black sauce Gunkan-maki (ほたるいか黒作り軍艦巻き, 180 yen)
Black sauce have squid ink, soy sauce and so on. I know “Okiduke” without squid ink and always eat it. It’s good, too.
Filefish (カワハギ, 470 yen)
it’s great restaurant because they serve such a fresh seafood at inexpensive price. Sometimes they offer unbelievable price compared with in Tokyo area. I’m into Kanazawa !
