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 !

Hirai : Soft roe, monkfish liver gathering in a hotpot (豊田屋)
Special hotpot during cold season only ! My friend invited me to the izakaya that is named Toyotaya near Hirai station, not so far from Kinshicho and Oshiage,  the other day. It is cheap izak...

That hotpot can be eaten here !

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 !

なべなべなべ~(*´д`*) 好きな人にはたまらない画ですが、嫌いな人には、単なるグロ画像という・・・・(ノ∀`)

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)

      I knew the existence of such a delicious hotpot last year ! I often visit there since then.
      So tight izakaya, but it well worth visiting.
