I arrived at 5 PM and the resto was already full!
Yes! I made it!
A clamato is made from clam juice extract, tomato juice, spices. If you've never tried it, it's awesome.
The three dishes you absolutely must try!
Vinegared rice & nori, ¥380.
You can order a few for the table, or you can also order a set per person.
First: The resto's #1 dish, "unisho"
The portion is quite generous and in the centre is lots of tuna!
And the uni gave the dish an exquisite taste. The best part is that the dish is reasonably priced!
You don't need any seasonings, it's perfect as is.
The mix of textures is really amazing. This dish goes a little too well with alcohol!
Second: The tuna assortment made with 6 different tuna parts
It comes with wasabi, salt and sesame oil.
Third: Tuna served with the bone
There are many other dishes to try too!
The texture is slightly crunchy and soft because of the tuna. It's a really nice dish.
It's a lot like BBQ ribs and is served with pepper and garlic sauce.
The meat is very tender and it goes very well with mustard.
