Now is the time to have a good look (and buy) seafood and fish at the big supermarket in Parche, Shizuoka JR Station, in Shizuoka City, especially local!
I had a quick look today as I was shopping for tonight’s dinner and I did find some things of great interest as usual!
Large lobsters! Live!
At 698 yen for 100 grams, they are not cheap, but they will not stay long there!
They were caught in the Suruga Bay off Mochimune, one the main fishing harbors in Shizuoka City with those of Shimizu and Yui!
More than in French or Italian Restaurants they will find their way to some expensive/exclusive Japanese restaurant as these are wild lobsters!
Gambas/tenagaebi (not to be confused with river water shrimps of the same name!)! Live!
Same price tag as for live wild lobsters!
The ones found in the Suruga Bay are famous all over the country!
These will definitely find their way in one of the top Italian restaurants in town!
Fish freshly brought from harbors in Shozuoka Prefecture!
They had been brought to harbor less than 12 hours ago!
Soles, sailfish sandfish, sea robins, leather jackets/Thread-sail filefish, umasura, meita and Barred Knifejaws!
All local, wild and fresh!
