so delicious and good place


Second night in Hiroshima.
I couldn't eat oysters yesterday, so today I doubled my expectations and hit a seafood bar. I went through the noren without making a reservation, but luckily I was shown a private room and was very satisfied. As expected, I was immersed in the self-satisfaction that it was my birthday.
First, I ordered the long-awaited raw oysters, a single piece of horsetail fish, and then an assortment of three types of sashimi came out... (3 types of sea bream, sashimi, etc.? The meat is big, but is this all you need?) I thought to myself. When I was there, the bonito was marinated in olive oil and I noticed that it was green onions. It appears with a side of chaleots. The volume is enough to fill you up at this point. My wife and daughter ordered three servings, but one or two is enough. I forgot about the third item.
As I was doing this, a fresh piece of Japanese blackfish appeared. The liver is in the middle, giving it a rich flavor when eaten with sashimi. If you compare the thickness of the flesh with puffer fish, this one is definitely more delicious. However, when it comes to deep-fried chicken, the puffer fish wins out overwhelmingly.
I felt that this restaurant was of a high standard when I ate the Tsukushi, but I was able to enjoy the seafood from the Seto Inland Sea from beginning to end.
In a sense, I was a maniac in my alcoholic repertoire, including ``Shinkame (Saitama Prefecture)''.


My first filefish course + snacks, 2 bottles of beer (Akaboshi), and 4 glasses of sake cost about 1,1000 yen per person. (visited by 2 people)
I don't know about the parking lot, but it's located closer to Heiwa Boulevard past the bar district, so I don't think anyone will go there by car. (perhaps)
It is best to make a reservation, but if you are able to make a business trip, it is best to call before going, as there is no capacity.
The a la carte dishes are a bit pricey, but I think the price is reasonable.
All the dishes were delicious.
The filefish course alone is quite filling.
But is the eel restaurant the main one? Well, it was delicious, so in conclusion, I recommend it_(┐``ε:)_
