The chef said that this bonito have weight of 8.8 kg ! So large bonito ! Ate it with the ear perilla.
The ear perilla could be separated from its stalk with our chopsticks with ease 🙂
Fresh smells of the bonito was good.

ぷりんぷりんの鱈Σ(゚Д゚) 厚みがスゴイ(ノ∀`)

The cod was closed on the ship immediately to keep it fresh.
So thick and it had springy texture !!!

And such a large salad camel. They said that was “mix salad”.
The bowl was heaping full of foods !!!
Salad with bamboo shoot, firefly squid, natural bracken etc.. (ミックスサラダ)

Salad with bamboo shoot from Wakayama, , natural bracken from Uchiko, firefly squid and organic vegetables, Begin (Osaka2014-1)

終盤に出てきたのがこのサラダ。すごいボリュームΣ(゚Д゚) 野菜も蛍烏賊もおいしい!おいしいけど!ツライ・・・(;´Д`)

The name was “salad”, but too large and it had lots of ingredients like bamboo shoot from Wakayama, firefly squid, natural bracken from Uchiko-cho in Ehime and so on…
Those bamboo shoot and natural bracken was very fresh.
Also those organic vegetables were from Moriyama city in Shiga prefecture. Not only its taste, but they are also particular about the source of their ingredients.
The water cress was from Uchiko-cho and onion was from Moriyama city.
It was delicious, but so large !! I managed to eat it up, but it was very hard for me…

Yamagata beef steatk with bordelaise sauce (山形牛ステーキのボルドレーズソース添え)

Also it had firstborn egg !!! Thank you !!!
Caramel sauce with raspberry vinegar from France was bottom of the pudding. It had sour taste a bit and tasty.
And the course had also one drink after the meal.

Our longing “Begin” was great as I had expected and we could spend wonderful time.
But… I couldn’t understand what is Naniwa-style 😛

We have to go there again soon …..
