From the Y3000 dinner course.
Appetizer: Cold chawanmushi with seaweed, young Anago with ponzu, Ma-aji(Japanese horse mackerel) rod sushi.
Sashimi: Isaki, scallop, Botan shrimp etc.
The Botan shrimp head left from the sashimi was fried and served.
Cold dish: Early summer vegetable(aubergine, tomato, okra, corn) and somen.
Snack: Maguro and cucumber with shuto.
Hot dish: Daisen chicken tsumire(meat ball) in miso hotpot.
Rice cooked with Kinmedai in a Donabe(Japanese clay pot). It is not included in the dinner course. Y1600 for one big pot and is enough for 2-3 people.
A very tiny washoku place in Asagaya with only about 8 counter seats. Still fairly unknown and not even a decent map available in the internet. I’m so glad my friend brought me here because the food – prepared by a young and pretty lady all by herself – is absolutely delicious and the value for money is unbelievable. You have to order the rice/udon separately from the dinner course, but it’s still very cheap considering the quality and the amount of food you get. I had two storemade fruit wine and it came to about Y5000. Asagaya is a bit out of the way but the value is totally worth the trip.
