As mentioned, this restaurant is connected with the market next door, serving only the freshest of seafood “straight from the sea!”. The decor is pretty simple and while we were there at 3-4PM, there were surprisingly quite a few groups of people coming in to enjoy the seafood, and most of them are local! Somehow, that tells me we found the right spot.
Simple, but definitely a solid selection of cooked / raw food. Whatever you see in the market next door that you don’t see here on the menu, just tell me what you want and the staff will get it and prepare it for you 🙂
Uni taken straight from the spiky black echinoderms creature … thingy. A little watery though, I actually prefer the dry ones you find at most sushi restaurants. This is as fresh as it usually gets. But I’ve seen videos where people just pluck these things out from the sea, cracks it open and drinks it. Dayum.
I ❤ Uni with a friggin’ passion, you slimy little thing …
This toro was fresh, but definitely not the best I’ve had. If you look closely at the toro, notice there’s a spot in the middle that’s a little gray? Yeh … I thought that was a little weird, but it didn’t taste like its gone bad or anything … very awkward. BUT … still good.
Both crunchy and sweet in the Chinese sense (爽甜) … I actually prefer the conch a little more.
The bill came out to be around ¥20,000 … so I guess this isn’t as cheap as we had imagine. Then again, we did have some pretty expensive seafood … perhaps, we should’ve just stuck with cooked / grilled food.
