Last night we visited our favorite sushi restaurant in Shizuoka City, Sushi Ko, and have once again challenged Chef Kenta Birukawa/尾留川健太さん into something different!
We just asked off the cuff to produce five dufferent “gunkan/軍艦/”Mothership” sushi nigiri but we attached no conditions to ingredients!
Now, what did he offer us?
Can you guess?
Once againn, can you guess?
Alright, here are the answers! LOL
Mekabu Seaweeed/和布蕪, Uzura Tamgo/Quail Egg/鶉卵 and Katsuobushi/Dried Bonito shavings/鰹節!
Male Cod Sperm Sacs/Shirako/白子!
Flesh Grated off the Inside of the Skin of a tuna and Chopped Scallions/Negi Toro/葱トロ！
Now, you can have this fresh only in Shizuoka Prefecture: Cherry Shrimps/Sakura Ebi/桜海老! Served with grated fresh ginger!
Another Sushi Design by Chef Kenta Birukawa at Sushi Ko in Shizuoka City coming very soon!
