Gastronomic Destinations: Kanazawa City 5: Lunch at Hirai Honten Sushi


Service: Kind and attentive. Easy-going and smiling!
Equipment & Facilities: very clean overall. Excellent washroom
Prices: Reasonable to slightly expensive
Strong points: Sushi and tuna. Great lunch sets. Entirely non-smoking!


for our last meal in kanazawa City, we decided to have d\fish again and more precisely sushi!


Hirai Honten is conveniently located on the second floor about the great Ohmicho Market whose fish only has to travel upstairs to be served on your plate!


Visitors who do not like raw fish should be discouraged (overawed? LOL) as they also serve some great cooked seafood sets!


We chose two fairly similar sets!


My donburi set, quite extravagant!
Can you spot the salmon roe with real gold flakes, the sea urchin, the oyster, the conger eel, the yellowtail and crab?


Can you spot the tuna, negitoro and sweet shrimps?


Another view of the crab!


The Dragon’s donburi set!
Can you spot the oyster, negitoro, salmon roe with gold flakes, and cuttle fish?


Can you spot the octopus, salmon, yellow tail and sweet shrimp?


Can you spot the marinated mackerel, tamagoyaki, tuna among the rest?

This was our first visit to Kanazawa City, but expect at least two more!
There were just too many good things for a single trip!
