Autumn has come to the market !
I had breakfast at Yonehana one month absence. I refrained from going out for breakfast and lunch on workdays in August because of extremely hot weather.
It is still hot as same as in August, but Autumn is steadily coming.
I knew some eateries in Tsukiji Market started serving saury. Speaking of saury, it is representative fish in Autumn.
Yonehana’s chef’s choice that day was grilled salted saury !
I’m really glad that I could eat first saury of this season at Yonehana 🙂
So, I went straight to Yonehana without hesitation !
As soon as I was seated these foods were served.
Rice, miso soup, pickled cucumber and oden.
You think oden is a food for cold season. But Yonehana serve oden all year around.
They serve oden in hot soup in winter and in cool soup in warm season 🙂
Deep fried tofu and two thick slices of daikon radish.
And after a while, my longing saury was served !
Charcoal-grilled salted saury. Charcoal-grilling won’t be permitted at new Toyosu market. So, it’s precious ! Charcoal-grilled foods is far better than another means of grilling.
This saury was so fatty and I ate it with chopsticks, then its fat gathered on the dish. I felt like drinking the fat. (I never did :p)
This fish could be eaten everything except its head and backbone. Its innards were great !
That was my breakfast. And, I went back to Tsukiji that day at lunchtime 🙂
My delight lunch spot, Kashigashira. I needed to get a reservation for dinner, so I went to there at lunchtime.
I ordered fresh baby sardines bowl (生しらす丼, 1080 yen)🙂
The chef put tuna from Oma in special.
So much fresh tiny sardines ! I remember that I couldn’t eat it because there are so many eyes when I was a child. But now I entirely love it.
Its bitterness and sticky texture is great.
By the way, you might already know, the relocation of the market is postponed at least until February.
