Sushi Restaurant: Sushi Ko (revisited)

012

As advertised on Foodbuzz, I finally managed to drag the Missus to a belated visit of our favourite Sushi Restaurant in Shizuoka City: Sushi Ko!
I also succeeded in persuading the Missus in helping me with the pics. I hope this will become useful with friends who need information!

As we are just in season we started with katsuo/bonito. Maybe I told you that the best bonito is caught by fishermen from Shizuoka Prefecture who bring it to the Harbours of Numazu and Yaizu!
Notice the shiso/perilla flower sprig!

010

Every time, and I say every time, we visit Sushi Ko, the Missus must have deep-fried tuna served with momijioroshi (grated daikon with cayenne pepper)! Alright, it’s a great morsel, indeed!

008

Kawahagi/Filefish is in season, too.
We asked Mr. Oda to serve it as to serve it as tsukuri:

011

You roll a few pieces around a couple of hosonegi/thin leek and dip it in a sauce made with the fresh raw liver of the fish and some soy sauce and sake (see pic at the top)!

013

The “jowls” came later deep-fried!

015

I then challenged Mr. Oda to serve us one of his vegetarian sushi set:
Menegi/dwarf leek, Soba Me/Buckwheat Sprouts, Mitsuba/Trefoil, Kawaire Daikon!

017

Maguro Zuke/Marinated raw tuna. Another specialty of the house!

020

Kujira/Whale meat. Shizuoka Prefecture is one of the rare places where you can find it in Japan!

022

Sakura Ebi/Cherry Shrimps, fresh from Yui as gunkan. Can be found in that state only in Shizuoka Prefecture!

024

Pirikara Hotate Maki/Hot Scallops Roll. Another specialty of the house. American Friends, I can hear you salivating (drooling)!

026

Tamagoyaki! Cute, ain’t it?

027

Ikura no Mini Donburi/Mini bowl of salmon roe!

We did drink a lot, and only ate that. Mind you, we came back home full and content!

  1. I love sushi, but my conscience would hurt too much to eat whale meat. Whale is a gentle mammal of the ocean. I don’t want them killed. I also do away with eating bluefins. There are all kinds of other sushi I can eat. I just want to give some species a rest.
    Sorry for a bit heavy on you Robert.
