Shizuoka Chirashi Zuzhi!
Service: Very friendly, attentive and informative
Facilities: Overall clean if a bit old-fashioned
Strong points: Mainly local fish and seafood. Local sake. Always ready to improvise!
Chirashi Zushi/散らし寿司 means “Decoration Sushi” in Japanese.
It can be considered as one of the oldest ways to make sushi in Japan!
The great advantage is the total freedom of design and inspiration!
Last Monday after having tasted many sake at the Shizuoka Sake: 2012 Shizuoka Prefecture New Sake Tasting Annual Meet, I and my good friend Marcus Grandon decided we had to eat something to help digest all that sake before we resumed work!
I had been wanting to eat Ekimae Matsunosushi Restaurant’s Shizuoka Chirashizushi lunch for a long time and this was the right occasion!
It is a full lunch indeed with small cockles miso soup.
Also featured are ginger and daikon pickles and a small dessert under the form of home-made kumquat compote!
The Shizuoka Shirashi zushi plate!
Let’s have a closer look and see what we can recognize!
Tuna, tamagoyaki/Jpaanese omelette, Soboro/sweet crumbled omelet, dried sakura ebi/Cherry shrimps, nori/dried seweed.
Tuna, shirasu/boiled sardine whiting, tamagoyaki/omelet/ anago/conger eel, shimesaba/pickled mackerel, dried sakura ebi.
Tuna, freshly grated wasabi, shirasu, tamagoyaki, anago, shimesaba, soboro and nori!
And it is a different offering every day!
