Takahashi opens earlier these days.

I had a breakfast at Tsukiji Market the other day. At first I intended to go to Yachiyo to eat deep fried ayuBut somehow Takahashi opened. Takahashi usually open from 7:30 am. If I start to have breakfast from 7:30 am, I can’t go work on time. So I usually can’t eat at Takahashi on workdays.

I got close to Takahashi, and I found the word “ayu” on the menus. I had wanted to eat grilled ayu at Takahashi for a long time.

I didn’t want to miss the chance, so I decided to enter Takahashi.

Of course, I ordered a grilled salted ayu set (鮎の塩焼き定食) 1000 yen.

Water pepper vinegar. The green color is nice. Dipping ayu meat into this and eating.

But I didn’t need it because the ayu was salted moderately and so fresh.
I ate the ayu as it was.
Burnt smell and taste of ayu was excellent.
