nice sushi omakase with great cost performance (10,000 yen pp for lunch)


◆Omakase Nigiri course (main counter) + drink
◆Cost: 22,000 yen
*Some photos have been deleted because they are not reflected.

The store is located in a convenient location, about a 1-minute walk from Akasaka Station. About 7 minutes walk from Akasakamitsuke Station.
The inside of the store feels clean. At the back of the store, there are ``completely private table seats'' and ``private rooms with a counter,'' which reflects the needs of the location. We are using the main counter.

〇 Boiled soft-shelled turtle
It has a distinctive chewy texture. It feels rich yet somehow natural.

〇Aomori flounder (sashimi)
Mild taste. If you eat it as is, you can enjoy the taste of the ingredients, but if you add ginger or ponzu, it will give you a firmer taste.

〇 Bowl of egg tofu and grilled red sea bream
Egg tofu shaped like the moon. The lightly grilled golden sea bream is undoubtedly delicious. It also goes well with the soup stock. It warms your stomach and makes you feel excited, ``Let's eat sushi.''

〇White squid (from Shimane Prefecture)
The squid has a small knife in it, and the sticky sweetness of the tip of the squid will remain in your memory.

〇 Golden sea bream (from Choshi)
Beautiful form, absolutely delicious. The companion is said to be the best item this time.

〇Ark shellfish
A royal taste. When you bite into it, the aroma and texture are unique to shellfish.

〇Grilled soft-shelled turtle with sauce
The soft-shelled turtle, which is often eaten in a hot pot, is grilled and served. It is richer in the gap between it and the red shellfish. You can enjoy the juicy yet moist texture, which is different from red clams. By the way, this dish was invented by Mr. Mekaru, who is from Okinawa. He was a simple and kind-hearted older brother.

〇Shime mackerel (produced in Hyogo prefecture)
Finished mackerel that brings out the flavor of the ingredients themselves

〇Red bluefin tuna (from Kagoshima Prefecture)
A stunningly beautiful form. Moderate acidity. It has a refreshing taste and a lingering aftertaste.

〇 Bluefin tuna medium fatty tuna (from Kagoshima Prefecture)
The taste gently melts in your mouth without chewing. It's also good to be able to experience the differences in the parts.

〇Isobe-yaki flat shellfish
A crunchy texture similar to squid ears. Fresh taste with no odor at all.

〇Ayu with child, abalone, ginkgo
This time's masterpiece. Ayu with a child, this is so good. It's so delicious. I can't really put it into words, but it's delicious.

〇Hokkaido raw sea urchin and homemade salmon roe
A luxurious composition that combines your favorite things. In particular, the homemade salmon roe has a unique texture, one by one. Even though I like the flavor and don't eat salmon roe, this dish is easy to understand and delicious.

〇Kuruma prawns (accompanied person only)
The shrimp will be cooked right in front of you, starting with peeling the shells. Enjoying the cooking process is one of the benefits of cooking at the counter.
I'm sure it must be delicious because I was happy to eat it and thought it was delicious.

〇Engawa (instead of shrimp)
Thickly cut, the more you chew, the more the flavor spreads in your mouth. Immerse yourself in the aftertaste.

〇Conger eel (salt and sauce)
A luxurious taste that seems to be on the opposite end of the spectrum. The fluffy fragrant Japanese pepper flavor is also nice.

〇Egg with shrimp flavor, red soup stock
A sweet egg with a strong shrimp flavor. Finish with a warming red soup stock.

〇Hojicha gelato
Moist gelato. Piyone is casually added.

That's about 20,000 yen. Beyond the deliciousness, the customer service and comfort of our restaurant, led by the proprietress, are amazing. The customer base is stable, and it can be used not only for dates and entertainment, but also for social gatherings with family and friends. If you are having a welcome/farewell party for 4 to 6 people, it would be a stylish idea to reserve a private counter and hold it in a gorgeous manner.

It's also no wonder that there were a few foreign tourists here and there, probably because the hotel concierge had requested some delicious sushi. The store staff are also used to speaking English. This is a very calm restaurant for adults. Recommended.
