This season has come this year, too !
Now winter season has set in. The best season for Hotpot is here!
Though now I eat hotpot even in summer.
But, there’s precious hotpot that can be eaten only in winter !
I was waiting this season for a year !
That hotpot can be eaten here !
So small and narrow izakaya and it was entirely packed.
The wonderful hotpots are on the menus !
Monkfish liver hotpot, Monkfish and monkfish liver hotpot, Soft roe hotpot, Oysters hotpot….Dainty hotpots !
At first, we ordered our drinks. I ordered my drink a Highball with dried plum (梅干しハイボール, 320 yen)
This dried plum was tasty … 😉
Vinegared mackerel (しめさば, 580 yen)
This izakaya is popular as the hotpots, but this vinegared mackerel is great, too. Basically, I don’t like vinegared mackerel, but I welcome such a tasty vinegared mackerel !
Grilled eel’s innards (うなぎの肝焼き, 440 yen * 2)
Its bitterness was awesome !
Well, our hotpot came.
Two portion of Soft roe hotpot (1900 yen * 2), one portion of monkfish hotpot (1800 yen) and one portion of monkfish liver hotpot (1900 yen) all together in the big pot 🙂
It is attractive picture for us, who love it.
But it is only a grotesque picture for people who hate it ,,,
Which do you feel ? 😉
It took much time to cook the hotpot, and some foods came another the hotpot. So, we waited the hotpot being cooked over eating another foods.
Simmered beef and tofu (牛煮込み, 400 yen)
Simmered beef was tasty and the tofu dressed with its fat and taste 🙂
Ham steak (ハムステーキ, 530 yen)
So thick ham ! It went with the homemade onion dressing !
Deep fried oysters (カキフライ, 480 yen)
Sardines tempura (イワシ天ぷら, 450 yen)
Just a bit more ….
Basically, the staff cook it lest those are uncooked.
We had a second helping. The soft roe got smaller than expected and we weren’t satisfied.
One portion of Oyster hotpot (1400 yen) and soft roe hotpot each.
Last, we put udon into the pot. Two portions of udon.
This udon was expanding in the soup !
That time was like dream. And I wanna go there again soon, within this year !
