I found there’s a unfamiliar fishes on the menu at Odayasu (小田保) thanks to my friend’s tweet, so I went to there for eating it. Fortunately I could meet him at Odayasu.

The fish’s name is Himedai (Sea-perch snapper). It is called “Ogodai (オゴダイ)” in Kanto region and Okinawan people call it “Kurukinmachi (クルキンマチ)”. It is caught around Kozu island and Ogasawara islands. Its skin is soft pink before grilling.

Of course, I ordered it with rice and miso soup. This fatty fish went with rice very well.

And I went to there again a few days later to eat another strange fish. Fuefukidai. Fuefukidai is Lethrinus haematopterus in English. It was more chewy than Ogodai.

Well both fishes have “Dai” (“Tai”) in those names. Tai means sea bream in Japanese. But those are not sea bream. There are so many fishes having “Dai” in those names nevertheless those are not sea bream. Their white meat and looking is similar to seabream. So, those are have words “dai”.

By the way, I have been wanting to eat Scallop mix set (Deep fried scallop and fried scallop with butter set), but I can’t eat because whiteboard menu is always attracting me. Umm.
