Sour plum wine.
Appetizer: clam and seaweed(?) and wasabi.
Shiromi-sakana(white-meat fish) otsukuri(sliced raw fish).
夏野菜の煮こごり。 かつおたたき。
Summer vegetables gelatin. Bonito tataki.
四万十川ごりの唐揚げ。 鯨カツ。
Fried gori(some kind little river fish). Gei-katsu(fried whale meat). These two are absolutely delicious specialties of this restaurant and are must-order. Whale meat actually has the texture and taste of venison! Make sure you order Gei-katsu early or it might run out.
さんまの友肝焼。 新しょうが旨煮。
Grilled sanma(Pacific saury). Apparently rolled with its liver, but I couldn't tell. Simmered ginger, simple but good.
Raw shirasu(white bait). Tofu and egg hotpot.
Scallop and hasuimo "takiawase"(boiled vegetables). This came in a big bowl but I forgot to take pic. Cold soumen with duck soup.

Bouzushi(literally "rod sushi"). Cold tea porridge. Fig koushuni(simmered with red wine, soy sauce etc.).

A friend took us to this local and casual washoku place for dinner. A bit out of the way for me but it is only a few minutes walk from Gakugeidaigaku station which is near Shibuya. A tiny restaurant with mainly counter seats. We sat at the only table at the back which can accomodate 4-6 people. Everything we ordered were delicious without exceptions. I especially loved the Bonito tataki, fried gori and fried whale meat. Everything on the food and drink menu are reasonably priced. We ate and drank(mainly ninonshu) til we couldn't move, and it was a bit more than 7000yen per person. They have a set dinner course less than 5000yen but my friend never tried it so not sure what would come out.

Menu(J): 1, 2.

The rod sushi is for 5 people though!
The slightly out-of-the-way location makes it reasonably priced I think. If it were located in Ginza I am sure the price will be doubled. Too bad it is very faaaaaaaar from where I live. ^^;;;

The rod sushi is like party platter size, so big~
The Fig koushuni seems very yum! So big portion and many variety (compare to that super $$$ kaiseki one you had before)
