Popular Toumeshi in Nihonbashi could be eaten in Motoyawata, too !

I heard there is a so famouse oden izakaya that is named Otakou. It is famouse as “Toumeshi”.
I had seen Toumeshi on the internet and magazines only. But I could have the chance to go there thanks to my friend invited me to there.

Sarashi kujira with vinegared miso and pickled cucumber, Otakou Motoyawata (Motoyawata)


Whale tail with vinegar miso. It is boiled pickled whale tale with salt  and then being put in the water for a while.
So, those whale tale don’t have the fat left. And we eat it with vinegared miso sauce.
…..Umm. The fat of whale is delicious !!!!!
Whale meat that have no fat left was not good. Well, originally, sarashi-kujira is not for serving at shop like this, it is preserved food. I think.

Toumeshi, Otakou Motoyawata (Motoyawata)


It didn’t have extraordinary apperaance than I had expected.

What is Toumeshi ?
– Huge tofu oden on the rice soaked with oden soup

The tofu was very soft and tasty. And he rice soaked with oden soup was not strong taste, but slightly sweet and tasty.
Toumeshi was good as I heard ,all the same.
I recommend you eat it once when you come to Japan 😀
