Thanks to my friends, I could visit Sushi Hashimoto again. Once in a month !
But, finally, we couldn’t reserve next time at that time 🙁
The reservation was full for another two months.

Shintomicho : Sushi Hashimoto in October (鮨はしもと)
Monthly splendid Sushi time I enjoyed Sushi Hashimoto again :) Taking full reservation of seats is getting harder and harder :( Sushi Hashimoto is going up the stairs to be one of the great ...

Hashimoto’s otsumami can’t be eaten without sake ! The staff chose this Ishizuchi (石鎚) for me.
Ishizuchi is a place in Ehime prefecture and this is one of the place that I want to visit someday. So, I was glad that he chose it 🙂

ここのおつまみは、お酒が必要ですね、ハイ( ・`ω・´)

Otoshi was Kinukatsugi (きぬかつぎ). Kinukatsugi is unpeeled boiled taro. Do you know it? I didn’t know.
This was the first time to eat it. I had no idea how to eat it. My friend next me showed me how to eat. Its peel was easily removed by

Filefish (カワハギ)

カワハギは肝醤油で。肝醤油なんてなくたっておいしいんですけどね、十分。

With it. Soy sauce and filefish’s innards mixed altogether well.
Of course, the filefish was enough delicious without it, this sauce was splendid and I didn’t want to leave one drop of it !

そして香箱蟹!ひるま、家で2ハイ食べましたがいくら食べても飽きません!

I ate two female crabs called seiko-gani caught in Sakaiminato area of Tottori in the daytime before Sushi Hashimoto. And I ate again. But I never got tired of eating it 🙂

Well, last otsumami was as same as usual, grilled fish.

ちょっと味付けが甘くて、苦手だった(^_^;)

Kuruma prawn (車海老)
It was also too sweet. Perhaps, I might feel so because of the sweetness of clam before it.
