Fancy lunch at inexpensive price.

Appearance, Oryori Kifune, Kanazawa (Hokuriku&Tokai 2016)


I heard it is very popular Japanese traditional foods restautant and especially it is really hard to reserve seats at inexpensive lunchtime.
Of course, we couldn’t reserve at first, but fortunately, there’s cancellalation two days before the day and we could reserve at lunchtime:)

We asked to the staff about the reservation next time and she said to us that they have full reservation until six month ahead.

At lunchtime, they prepare two courses. 3000 yen and 5000 yen (excluded in Service fee and consumption tax).
We ordered 5000 yen course.

Every tables are separeted like room.

At first, Tea and dried beans were served.

Assorted sashimi (お造り) was served.
Gasu shrimp, yellowtail, neon flying squid (aka-ika) and marbled rockfish(Kasago).

I didn’t know about Gasu shrimp, but it is caught in Hokuriku area like Ishikawa and Fukui only. And it can’t be eaten in another region because it lose its freshness soon !
