A friend’s birthday. She loves pork so I picked this place which is specialised in kagoshima pork.
Free appetizer, pork ear(!) and cabbage salad.
ゆで豚とろマスタード風味。Poached fatty pork, with mustard. Drenched in too much oil, but the pork is soft and tender.
ロースカツ。Deep-fried pork shoulder meat. Wow it is sooooooo nice!!! Probably the best I have ever eaten!! It is surprisingly NOT oily and the meat is soft with the right amount of fat. I am not a big fan of fried pork but oooh this is heaven!
角煮。This is usually my favourite dish but this one turned out quite hard and not fatty enough….hmm….
バラシソ焼。 Grilled pork belly with siso. A bit rough and tasteless…..
コラーゲン揚げ。It is called “fried collagen” but it is just fried pork skin, taste is so-so.
軟骨煮。Stewed gristle? This is very very very good!! Well balanced amount of meat and fat and soft bones.
サツマイモアイス。Potato ice-cream, not bad. Two of us both had a drink and a coffee, and the total came up to about 7000yen.
