First, we toasted with a bottle of beer and ordered the omakase course.

・Simmered blowfish
The appetizer is boiled blowfish. It has a refreshing taste with a strong ginger flavor and no fishy smell.

・Blowfish sashimi
Here, in addition to the ponzu dipping sauce, salt is also provided. Salt on blowfish! ? That's what I thought, but when I eat it I'm convinced (lol)
The puffer fish is sliced ​​a little thicker, and the liver is served in an assortment of three types: simple, topped with green onions and grated maple leaves, and parboiled. When I wondered what liver was, I was told it was red bean liver.
As for the taste, the meat is chewy and has an indescribable rich flavor that gives it a slightly matured feel.
For a shockingly delicious way to eat it, wrap the red bean liver with green onions and serve with salt! This way of eating is amazing! ! (lol)

・Grilled Shirako
It's indescribably creamy. There is no fishy smell at all, and the sweetness and richness spread throughout your mouth. Happiness world is fully open! !

・Grilled blowfish
The slightly spicy fugu is grilled over charcoal right in front of you, and you can devour it freshly grilled. Also, the deliciousness of the skin is shocking! ! (Laughs) It has a unique softness that you want to keep in your mouth forever, and a mysterious texture that makes you bite into it after a few bites.

·Temari Sushi
Bite-sized fugu temari sushi. It's refreshing, and the salt brings out the sweetness of the blowfish.

・Fried blowfish
Enjoy two types: deep-fried style and simple. Although it is light, it has a unique flavor that gradually spreads.

・Tecchiri
Now, it's time for the main blowfish course. In the case of blowfish, the first part is like a double protagonist. (lol)
Add green onions, garland chrysanthemums, tofu, etc. to the pot and serve with ponzu or salt. Salt is also very useful here! !

・rice porridge
The final touch is, of course, rice porridge. I requested a dashi with plenty of fugu flavor and a little bit of soup. There are no words needed, this is the moment of bliss.

It was the moment when I tasted the best blowfish of my life.

A high-quality puffer fish restaurant. I'm fine with turning down customers, but since I was entertaining a bunch of idiot office workers with loud voices, I reduced the number by one star. I want people like that to be removed. If you want to make a fuss, go to an izakaya.

That's delicious ❤
I love the thick sashimi of fugu pork, which has a slight citrus aroma and is eaten with powdered salt!
Not to mention the large grilled milt, grilled blowfish, and fried chicken 🎵
