Shintomicho : Last party at Sushi Hashimoto (鮨はしもと)

We went to Sushi Hashimoto last month, too. This would be the last time for us to occupy full seats 🙁 We could reserve only four seats next time.

Grown halfbeak (カンヌキ) as sashimi. With grated ginger and  soy sauce. Though I didn’t like halfbeak so much, it was delicious ! It was sliced thickly and the texture of meat was good.
My friend ordered it as sushi later and I also wanted to have it, too !

サヨリってあんまりありがたいと思って食べたことはないんだけど、これは肉厚ですごくおいしい!

Steamed ezo abalone (蒸しエゾアワビ). It was soft. Also the innards sauce was also good ! I wanted to licki the dish up !
But the chef said to us as last time, “Please leave some sauce for next”.

あわび、やわらかーい。肝もおいしい。が、やっぱり今回も「残しといてくださいネ(^^)」

So, after we ate the abalone up, the chef put vinegared rice and golden cuttlefish 🙂
The chef said to us, “Mixed altogether and eat”. We did so. It was great though its looking was not good :p

Saquid again ! It had its egg in it. It had springy and crunchy texture ! I was really happy.

Chawanmushi (茶わん蒸し)
So much crab’s meat ! The chef put a small amount of blue cheese in something to give it a subtle flavor.

Sushi included in the course has finished with conger eel. And we asked the chef about another seafood as usual. I ordered more two sushi.

Botan shrimp (車エビ). My delight.
I hadn’t eaten botan shrimp both Miyakozushi and SUshi Hashimoto, so I was really glad !

ボタンエビ!都寿司でも鮨はしもとでもボタンエビは食べたことがないのでうれしい!

And Hagashi of tuna (鮪のはがし)
You think what is “hagashi” ?
It’s o-toro part of tuna. It is not only ordinary o-toro. Ordinary o-toro is cut with knife along its tendon. But its hagashi is … the chef pull the tendon off the meat with very carefully. Between tendon and meat have plenty of fat. Because its quality was great and also it took much time to be served. So,its price was seemed to be very high. 1500 yen or so ?
But it’s worth eating.
