Tsukiji Market : Sea eel at Yachiyo

At last, I ate deep fried sea eel

It is the post about 23th August.
I expected that Yachiyo serves sea eel yet, and I went to Tsukiji Market early in the morning.
But I thought, “Well, I wonder Segawa is already open.” and went toward outside market.

Segawa wasn’t opened yet all the same. Segawa may be open around 7:30 a.m. 🙁 It’s too late for me…
I can’t eat at Segawa on weekdays.

And then, I went to Tsukiji Market and I checked Kato’s menu. But nothing attracted me on the menus.
And, I also checked Tenfusa,,, There were young ayu !
It was valuable opportunity to eat young ayu such a out of season.
I felt like eating young ayu, but I went into Tonkatsu Yachiyo. Sea eel called me.

I got up so early because I intended to eat sea eel.

As my schedule 🙂
I carried out my original intention after all 😀
I went to Yachiyo.
Yachiyo served roasted pork fillet and eggs set the day.
(Yachiyo serves roasted pork fillet and eggs set on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.)
So, there were many guests in. And many of them ordered roasted pork fillet and eggs set.

Sea eel, kuruma prawn and scallop set (鱧・車海老・帆立定食, 1600 yen)

Well, kuruma prawn make a good picture 😀

It’s sea eel ! It tasted very light, so I ate it with a lot of tartar sauce.

The scallop was bigger than A set and B set. Of course it has good reason that these are different in prices.

Still, are you fussy about eating kuruma prawn ?
It is natural that you cut within your mouth with kuruma prawn. Such a sharp looking.
So, I don’t want to order only kuruma prawn set.
I never want to feel that tension as many as three times.

Also rice and miso soup.

Rice etc, Yachiyo (Tsukiji Market)
