Japanese Appetizers at Tomii, Shizuoka City

A Japanese restaurant worth its salt will always an array of appetizers ready for its customers in a hurry or not having enough time to enjoy a full meal. Moreover, they will be exclusively seasonal. They are certainly the mark of the restaurant for all to remember.

I harbour no worry whatsoever when I visit Tomii in Shizuoka City in a rush. I actually look forward to savour their tidbits of the day!
Alright, here is what I had the other night:

I was certainly in a hurry and I’m afraid the pics slightly suffered from it!
From left to right:
“Shiromi sakana to jagaimo agemono”/White fish and potato deep-fried dumpling.
“Yuri”/lily bulb. The petals are first lightly boiled then marinated in sweet umeboshi vinegar and finally cut to shape.
“Endo mame tamagoyaki”/ Japanese omelette made with eggs and green peas.
“Komochi Konbu”/Herring roe pressed with konbu seaweed.

“Aka Konnyaku”?red Devil’s Tongue tuber jelly.
“Warabi”/western bracken fern, boiled.
“Komochi Konbu”/Herring roe pressed with konbu seaweed.
“Petit Vert/kimizu dare”/Petit Vert lettuce with sauce mde with egg yolk and sweet vinegar.

“Shirauo Karaage”/Ice goby deep-fried in a very light batter and seasoned with lemon juice. Simple and eminently tasty!

For a closer view: can you see their eyes?

Shizuoka Prefecture produces 50% of “Himono/Sun-dried fish” in all Japan! These three were caught in Suruga Bay, just off our city!

Top centre: “Tachiuo”/Scabbard fish grilled with sesame seeds.
Left: “Seguro Iwashi”/Black back sardines, also grilled with sesame seeds.
Right: “Choosia Fugu”/ A small variety of globefish, grilled and seasoned with grate lime zest.

Looking forward to my next visit!
