Mackerel miso stew

saba_teishoku
A popular menu item is the miso stew with a huge piece of mackerel in it. It's called "saba misoni" in Japanese. An interesting point about this meal is that you have two options: you can have either the tail part of the fish (shimo) or the belly part (kami).

If you choose the belly part (on the left of this picture), you get a slightly bigger piece, but if you choose the tail part (on the right), you get some tofu in your soup along with the fish.

Both stews come as part of a set meal that is a little over ¥1,000. It includes a clam miso soup, rice, and a small seaweed side dish.

The belly part is much softer than the tail part. They're both really delicious because they're simmered in the rich miso stew for a long time. You get the perfect blend of natural dashi from the fish and the vegetable umami of the fermented soy in the miso.

For some cuisine inspired by traditional Japanese home cooking, Uorkiki is definitely worth the go. You might want to consider it as an option next time you're in Shibuya.
