Sponsored links

Recently new restaurants and cafes opened at Tsukiji one after another. Yoshino Kichiya (つきじ芳野吉弥) is one of the restaurant. They are conger eels specialty restaurant and managed by wholesalers of conger eels. Kichiya stand in front of the entrance of Tsukiji Market. My friend is already a regular customer, and he took us to there. We left everything to him. He ordered a special course.

Appetizer was tuna salad. Of course, here was Tsukiji. The tuna was not canned. Asparagus and daikon radish was dressed with tuna’s fat. So tasty.

Assorted tempura. Conger eel, sea bream, eggplant, flatfish, mantis shrimps, and so on. Awesome. Those were crispy. Especially conger eel and mantis shrimps were excellent !
I liked those tempura in all dishes that I had then.

Yes ! It had much conger eels !

Conger eel and eggplant rolls. By the way, conger eel is named “Anago” in Japanese. And we call this skewer “Anago no guruguru”. Guruguru means roll. I think it’s cute name. It was served with shichimi pepper and sansho pepper. Both went with it well.

Last, we could choice one meal from some meal menus. I wanted to eat conger eel tempura again, so I chose this Aiten bakashi. Baked conger eel and conger eel tempura on the rice.

Do you see a sand-grass and closed box in front of me ? He was waiting for one minute. His conger eel was steamed sufficiency in the closed box. Here, his conger eels looked so soft.

Dessert. We could select one from chocolate ice cream and yuzu sorbet. I chose chocolate ice cream. Their conger eel is awesome all the same. They are open at lunchtime, so I will go there at lunchtime during work 🙂
