Shintomicho : Early summer and Autumn in a course at Sushi Hashimoto (鮨はしもと)

We visited Sushi Hashimoto again. It was the best season for very young punctatus’s best season.

Appearance, Sushi Hashimoto (Shintomicho)

新子の時期に鮨はしもとを訪問しました。貸し切りで新子もサンマも食わせろやぁ!と予約時にすごんだとかすごんでないとかとか(・∀・)

Basically, Sushi Hashimoto serve chef’s choice for 14000 yen only, but when my friend took the reservation, he said to the chef, “We want to eat both Very young punctatus and saury !”
So, the chef got good saury and very young punctatus and we could eat both 🙂
He reserved full seats, so the chef could fulfill our wish.

When we visited Miyakozushi last time, and to our sorrow, we couldn’t eat it because it wasn’t the good season yet.

(Moved) Bakuro-Yokoyama : Last Miyakozushi (都寿司)
Last Miyakozushi. But very yound punctatus wasn't in stock ! We went to Miyakozushi the other day. This was the last time for us to visit Miyakozushi. Because Miyakozushi quit their business...
So, I was really glad to hear that 🙂

At first, edamame and Japanese sake that I ordered was served.

まず枝豆と、注文した日本酒がでてきました。器がステキ(*´д`*)

My Japanese sake was named “Zaku (作)” from Okayama prefecture.
Official site of product compony –> http://jizake-mie.jp/SHOP/107504/list.html
It was fruity and easy to drink. So,it was a little bit dangerous !
The amout of the sake in my bottle was larger than this cute appearance, so I got drunk 😛

藁の香りが良いんですよねぇ(*´д`*)

Sardine roll (いわし巻き)
It had chives, takuwan (or takuan) and gari.
I think it is controversial food. I like it without takuan…

おいしかったけど、沢庵ないほうがもっとよかったかな。

Grilled eel with salt (鰻の塩焼き)
It’s wild eel from Shinji lake of Shimane ! This eel had plenty of fats ! I had never eaten such a delicious eel !
Oh my ! It’s not eels restaurant ! I can’t believe that sushi restaurant serve such a splendid eel !

お寿司やさんでこんなに美味しい天然うなぎが食べられるなんて!(*´д`*)

Minced sweet fish (鮎のミンチ)

Once the sweet fish caught in Niyodo river of Kochi prefecture was grilled and then minced. It went with the sake very well ! But it was small. I put it into my mouth little by little…

鮎をいったん焼いてからまるごとミンチにしたもの。うっかりすると一口で食べ終わってしまうくらい少ないので大事に大事に日本酒と一緒に・・・。

Grilled hairtail (太刀魚の塩焼き).
From Takeoka of Chiba.

After that, it’s the time for sushi ! I drunk my Japanese sake up just time, I got Green tea.
I don’t like eating sushi with alcoholic drinks very much.

さてさて。お寿司の時間ですよ。丁度お酒も飲み終わった頃なのでお茶をもらいます(`・ω・´)

Very young punctatus (新子)
“Very” young punctatus is the taste of early summer season only. But this year, it was too small to be cooked in the usually best season (July) because of the cold weather this spring. This was the first and last time to eat very young punctatus this year…..
Young punctatus is eaten all year around.

It was delicious ! It’s flavor, texture…. This was No.1 horse mackerel ever !
So much I ate, almost in a dream.
I wanted to eat more three portion of it. But they didn’t have in stock !!!!! X(

この鯵、すんごい美味しかったです。香り、食感、後味。パーフェクト。 あと3カンくらい食べたいのに、なぜおかわりがない・・・!(´;ω;`)

Saury (秋刀魚)
Thanks to the delay of very young punctatus’s grown up, we could enjoy both early Spring tastes and Autumn tastes in a course 🙂

秋の味覚。サンマ。新子の育ちが遅かったおかげで初夏と秋の味覚が同時に味わえちゃいました♪

前回唯一、「う~ん」ってなった車海老。今回はめちゃくちゃ美味しい!やっぱり海老美味しくないと、お寿司の楽しみ半減しますよね!(`・ω・´)

I visited Sushi Hashimoto last time, only kuruma prawn dissatisfied me. But that day’s was perfect 🙂
Prawn is special seafood for me.
I think prawn is the best favorite seafood for most of children. And after grown up, they continue to enjoy it. Me, too.
It is still special treats for me.

Shintomicho : Sushi Hashimoto, new sushi restaurant (鮨はしもと)
High-potential sushi restaurant has opened base on Miyakozushi We heard a sushi chef who trained at Miyakozushi has started his own restaurant in Shintomicho area, so we tried the restaurant ! Sush...

今回も大満足です。が、だんだんと人気が高まり、貸し切ってヤリタイホーダイすることは、難しくなってきましたね(´・ω・`)

That day’s No.1 was horse mackerel and the second was grilled eel 🙂
Everything was getting better than our course last time.
I was really satisfied with their sushi. But this restaurant is getting very popular. So, it is getting harder to reserve full seats.

Next we reserved in October. Of course, full seats 🙂
