Mountain of deep fried foods.
I visited Tonkatsu Yachiyo one and a half years absence.
I rarely eat such a gorgeous breakfast that cost around 2000 yen :p
I ordered a C set (C定食, 1500 yen) and one portion of deep fried sweetfish (あゆ唐揚げ１尾, 500 yen).
C set have deep fried kuruma prawn (kuruma-ebi), scallop and horse mackerel.
The shop says C set is valuable set because it have three popular deep fried foods at inexpensive price.
Everything is my delight !!!
Kuruma prawn. If you don’t mind, you can eat everything. But you should eat it from its tail because its sharp head hurt your throat if you eat it from its head.
The section of the scallop. Medium rare. Awesome 🙂
Now is the best season of sweetfish. This season will be end soon.
It can be eaten everything. Of course, its head and tail, too.
I ate it from its tail, too. But it is because its bitter head is my delight.
I like to save the best for last.
Four years have passed since I ate this deep fried sweetfish at Yachiyo last.
They don’t serve it every season and they serve it temporarily.
So, I was really glad that I could eat it after four years intervals !
