Closed – [Tsukiji Market] Butterfish saikyoyaki at Kato (和食かとう)


Summer holiday season is close to an end. So, Tsukiji didn’t have so much people around 7 a.m. this morning. I went to the 8th bldg. of Tsukiji Market that have Yonehana, Torito, Sushibun and so on and found almost all eateries didn’t have people waiting except Oedo and Nakaya that is sashimi bowl shop. Also our target, Kato (かとう), too.

I ordered a grilled butterfish marinated in Saikyo miso (マナガツオ西京焼) from this board.

This is butterfish. Butterfish is called Managatsuo (マナガツオ) in Japanese. I know this is out of season now (The best season is from Spring to early summer), but anyway, I wanted to eat it because it looked tasty at my friend’s blog !

As its name in English, it’s so fatty like mass of butter ! Kato sell this Saikyo miso for cooking it at home, so, someday I want to buy it !

Kato will not move to new Toyosu Market and quit their business. So, I don’t have much time to say such a thing. I’ll go there and buy it soon.

This is not set menu. So, I ordered separately set (定食, 450 yen). It have pickles, miso soup, boiled foods were good, too. Maybe, you can’t find the difference between two white things, one is rice and another is grated daikon radish. The grated daikon radish is eaten with the butterfish.

Perfect !

This is the assorted sashimi having five species of seafood. Tuna, squid, vinegared horse mackerel, sea urchin and red sea bream.

Gorgeous assort ! Especially the squid was soft and sweet. Maybe it was squid’s baby called “Shin-ika”. The vinegared horse mackerel was slightly vinegared. I couldn’t find the vinegar tastes.

After that we got out of the market and walked around shops street. And then we had coffee at this Yonemoto Coffee Shinten 🙂
