SN3O4548

Sushi Lunch Bentos fro sale at 500 yen at Shizuoka JR Station Parche Supermarket!

Due to the incredible wealth of fresh fish all year round, there is an enormous consumption of sushi at every level in Shizuoka City, from very cheap takeouts to expensive ( but certainly not as expensive as in Tokyo, qulity fro quality!) sushi restaurants.
Next time you come to Shizuoka City for a few days and are looking forward to budget sushi do visit the local department stores where you will have the surprise to discover tasty, from reasonably fresh to very fresh, and reasonably priced sushi sets, bentos and takeouts you can take beck to the hotel or into a park for instant pleasure.
Naturally I would advise the foreign (and Japanese) residents to do some homework!
As for prices count 100 yen for 1 US $ or 130 yen for 1 Euro!

Let’s start with the big supermarket on the first (ground) floor Of Parche Department Store located above and around Shizuoka JR Station!
First go to the fish and seafood area at the very end of the supermarket near the fish stand where they conduct interesting sushi lunch set sales!
500 yen a box is cheap away from Japan!

Sushi Restaurant: New Concept at Sushi Ko-Miue in Shizuoka City!

SN3O3768

Service: Very kind and easy-going[
Facilities: Impeachable cleanliness. Superb washroom
Prices: Reasonable to slightly expensive
Strong points: Unusual and happy combination of Sushi and French gastronomies. Shizuoka sake and even shochu!
Entirely non-smoking (extremely rare for a sushi restaurant!)!

Only a few weeks ago Chef Yukitoshi Oda/小田幸寿さん, formerly of Sushi Ko Sushi Restaurant opened this new sushi restaurant in an entirely new concept for Shizuoka: A traditional sushi restaurant combined with a French restaurant!
The establishment is divided into two distinct adjoining parts: a 8-seat sushi bar-counter where customers who are interested in sushi should sit and a room with holes built in the floor to sit easily under low tables where one should sit if he/she wishes to enjoy a combination of both cuisines or only French gastronomy. The kitchens, althoug tiny, are clearly separated and they don’t interfere with each other.
The food, naturally is top-class with a strong accent on local fish and vegetables in particular and of superb freshness. As for drinks, sake, beer, wine and even local shochu are available!

And the icing on the cake, it is totally non-smoking!

To cut a long story short let me show you what we had for dinner the other day, a combination set of both cuisines!

SN3O3758

The o-tooshi/snack coming with the first drink: naga-imo/long taro root and hotaru ika/tiny フィレflysくいd。

Strong points: Great variety of seafood from Shizuoka Prefecture and the rest of Japan. Great list of sake and shochu

SN3O3465

Chef Kenta Birukawa/尾留川健太さん at work!

The beauty of true great sushi is that it follows the seasons and the sea catches.
It is not that evident in the large metropolises where sushi is more or less “disguised”, but here in Shizuoka with a constant and abundant supply to complement seafood coming from other shores we are never short of new discoveries and truly extravagant sushi gastronomy and this at comparatively reasonable prices!

To cut a long story short let me have the pleasure to show you what Chef Kenta Birukawa/尾留川健太さん served us during a “short visit” the other day!

SN3O3466

Sazae/Turbo Shell salad as a snack with the first drink!

Extravagant ikura/salmon roe topping!

SN3O3478

Exploring the insides of the “cake” with avocado, cucumber and so forth!

SN3O3479

For a closer look!

SN3O3485

HIGHOCTANE/HAIOKU by Nick Itoh in Shizuoka City

Christmas Sushi: Red King Crab/Tabaragani/タラバガニ Chirashi Zushi!

SN3O3130

Red King Crab is one of the most expensive crabs in the world and you won’t see it often served in a home whatever the owner’s status!

SN3O3128

But the Missus received today as an End of The Year present from someone she helped out of a big bother!
The package for this single crab was enormous and it is a bit difficult to realize how big it is on the above photograph!
It came already as it is done most of the time for better conservation and also because people usually do not have a big enough pan to boil it.
The Missus, being her usual crass checked the price: 150 Euros/almost 200 US $!

SN3O3129

It took her a good hour to take all the meat out of this male (the best!) Red King Crab and had enough to fill a medium size tupperware box. a good kg of superlative crab meat!

SN3O3130

She had enough and a lot to spare (for lunch or as an extravagant appetizer for our wine and sake!) to prepare an enormous “Christmas Chirashi zushi/チラシ寿司” for a four-people dinner!

SN3O3131

The Missus prepared sushi rice and mixed it with thin slices of a small rice vinegar pickled cucumber, golden sesame seeds, small pieces of cheese and small cubes of avocado.
She the topped the lot with loads of red king crab, avocado cubes, and salmon roe/ikura/幾ら!

SN3O3132

The salmon roe added another extravagant touch!

SN3O3133

And fresh kaiware daikon/カイワレ大根/daikon sprouts for perfect balance in presentation, taste and nutrients!

When healthy food becomes extravagant!

SN3O2944

How about that for design!

SN3O2945

I asked for the fish bones and head to be deep-fried!
Not usually done, but the Chef is a friend!
Crispy and yummy!

SN3O2943

The cherry shrimps served with freshly grated ginger!
Note that in the gunkan they had been “straightened”. here they are in their natural appearance!

Sushi Design by Chef Kenta Birukawa at Sushi Ko in Shizuoka City: Sushi Charlotte!

SN3O2965

Service: Pro and very friendly
Facilities: Very clean. Excellent toilets
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Great variety of seafood from Shizuoka Prefecture and the rest of Japan. Great list of sake and shochu

As promised in the report on the gunkan feast here is another example of Chef Kenta Birukawa/尾留川健太さん’s ingenuity which demonstrates why he received an award as best sushi designs from his peers this year!

Actually I had asked him to come up with a new version of his acclaimed sushi Millefeuille and instead created a Charlotte-like sushi cake!

SN3O2961

The whole was conceived inside a metal ccircle by lining the inside first with raw salmon and tuna and then filled progressively with sushi rice and other ingredients!
The tail is grilled salmon skin! A crunchy and tasty tidbit of its own!

SN3O2963

Once filled Chef Birukawa partly closed the top by fording the fish inside before topping it with other ingredients!

SN3O2962

The topping consisted of ikura/salmon roe, thinly sliced cucumber and grilled salmon skin!

SN3O2966

It was such a sinful pleasure to open it and find out what was hidden inside!

SN3O2967

Perfect balance in taste with avocado and cucumber pieces inside and so healthy!
A cake for the health conscious gastronomes!

“Tidbits” coming soon!
