Summer and autumn on the dish together.

Recently I don’t go to Tsukiji for breakfast much because the number of my going out for dinner is increasing and I can’t get up so early.
But I had wanted to eat vinegared horse mackerel and deep fried foods.

That day, I expected that I could eat ayu karaage at  Tonkatsu Yachiyo and went to there. I also expected that I could eat ayu karaage or vinegared horse mackerel 🙂

Light-hand neighbor is Sushidai and it had lots of people waiting in front of the eatery and street. Yachiyo had lots of guests in the eatery.
That day, Yachiyo serves “roast pork fillet and two eggs (チャーシューエッグ)” (it is served only Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) that is so popular among the people, so half of the guests in the eatery ate it 🙂
Foursome said  “Four roast pork fillet and two eggs set !” as soon as foursome came into the eatery. It is really popular !
I haven’t ordered it because I can’t eat two fried eggs in the early morning. Well, I can’t eat two fried eggs, but I can eat deep fried foods in the morning easily 😛

To my sorrow, ayu was already out of the menus because the Autumn has set in, but there was vinegared horse mackerel as “B set” on the menus !

B set (Bセット) 1100 yen

Hijiki is so good for your health and scalp 😛

This is vinegared horse mackerel, main dish. Well, Yachiyo serves deep fried foods mainly, so this horse mackerel was so-so. I like Choseian’s better. Though also Choseian is soba restaurant, not fish restaurant 😛

It was well seasoned, but it was no longer fresh. Well, it is hard to pickle the fresh fishes as preserving its freshness.
But lots of vinegared horse mackerel was good for my breakfast !

This picture is a set of Matsutake mushroom and conger eel(松茸と鱧のセット, 1300 yen) that my friend ordered.

I hadn’t known there are such ways of eating Matsutake mushroom until I went to Tsukiji. 
I tasted it, the conger eel was lightly taste and Matsutake mushroom was so flavory. I want to eat it next time 😀

Yachiyo will stop serving conger eel when it gets cooler.
Conger eel and oyster alternate in being served in Yachiyo. Conger eel is served during warm season and oyster is served during cold season.
So, conger eel season will be ended soon. At the earliest oyster will serve from October, so if you want to eat conger eel, you should go now 😉
Matsutake mushroom’s best season is Autumn, and conger eel’s is Summer. It is nice that we can feel the change of the season by foods 😀

And I added a scallop fry and order (帆立フライ, 500 yen). Expensive compared with set…

Scallop fry, Yachiyo (Tsukiji Market)


This small scallop was 500 yen. Big horse mackerel was 500 yen…. I regretted that I should have ordered horse mackerel 😛
The moment I bit the scallop fry, I got a severe pain in my teeth (T_T)
But this scallop informed me of my back tooth breaking. So I have to appreciate … 🙁
Oh, this scallop never broke my teeth 😛 My back tooth may already broke. I had already feelng that something was wrong with my teeth.
But the scallop was so juicy and sweet.

After finished eating at Yachiyo to my full, we decided to drink coffee at the kissaten in the market.

This was the second time to enter the kissaten, but my acquaintance like the kissaten and maybe he visits the kissaten almost every time when he eat in Tsukiji Market.
There are rarely tourists, and almost all visitors are workers in the Tsukiji Market and they took a rest over reading a newspaper.

Milk and coffee (ミルクコーヒー 370 yen).The hot one was mine, and cold one was my friend’s.

    That scallop looks so good! I have tried vinegared horse mackerel, but I didn’t like it. Maybe it’s because I haven’t tried a really good one yet:)

  2. Ryoko says:

    This scallop inside was raw and so sweet 🙂 You should eat it as set absolutely. It is more valuable 😛
