Kanazawa’s specialty as sushi !
We had dinner at this sushi restaurant at second night at Kanazawa. Otomezushi.
I heard it is really difficult to reserve popular sushi restaurants in Kanazawa and Otomezushi is one of the restaurant.
After we were seated, the lady asked to us about our drinks. So, I ordered Japanese sake 🙂
We ordered course that have tsumami and sushi.
Well, I expected that the course have blackthroat seaperch, gasu shrimp and whelk because those are Kanazawa’s specialty seafood 🙂
Flat fish (ヒラメ)
Our course started from sashimi. This flat fish had springy texture 🙂
Botan shrimp (ボタンエビ)
It had sticky texture and tasty.
Grilled globefish’s soft roe (焼きふぐ白子)
Grilled blackthroat seaperch with salt (ノドグロの塩焼き)
Yes ! Ishikawa’s specialty ! So fatty as you see !
Sweet shrimp (甘エビ)
First sushi was sweet shrimp (northern shrimp) 🙂
As its name, it was so sweetand had springy texture. Delicious.
Yellowtail was served again.
Toro part of yellowtail. Yes, so fatty as you see.
Neon flying squid (赤いか)
It had artistic cut !
Crabs meat with its brown meat. Maybe it’s snow crab.
Toro part of tuna (トロ)
It had tendon and it might no be good-looking, but it was fatty and tasty.
Horse mackerel (アジ)
Vinegared mackerel (シメサバ)
Blackthroat seaperch (ノドグロ)
Blackthroat seaperch again 🙂 Plenty of fat appeared by grilled.
Gizzard shad (小肌)
Sea urchin (うに)
Conger eel (穴子)
Last food of our course was Miso soup with Ebi shinjou (エビしんじょうのみそ汁)
Ebi shinjou is minced shrimp ball.
We asked the chef about another seafood for sushi. The chef recommended some and we ordered one of it from his recommendation.
We thought we should eat Gasu shrimp (ガスエビ) all the same 🙂
We can’t eat it at Kanto region like Tokyo.
By the way, we ate three species of shrimp at this dinner.
Everything was quite different ! Everything was tasty.
Shrimp is also the specialty of Hokuriku area and restaurant around there can serve shrimps before losing their freshness. Of course, we can eat good shrimps in Tokyo, but it’s quite differ each other as its freshness.
I thought we can eat everything keeping its freshness in Tokyo, but I learned it isn’t a fact.
I should go out more ! 🙂
