Hawaiian Bar Restaurant: Lunch at Sea Zoo in Minato Yokocho, Mochimune, Shizuoka Ciy!

Minato Yokocho front!

Service: kind and attentive if a bit shy (at first!)
Equipment & facilities: overall very clean. Shared but very clean and complete washroom.
Prices: reasonable
Strong points: Hawaiian gastronomy, international gastronomy, craft beers.

Picture of the old Minato Yokocho!

Some time ago, CSA Real estate Co., actually based in Mochimune, among other projects took on to renew completely the old derelict Minato/harbor Yokocho/Alley to invite existing and new tenants to provide a much needed food and drinks site to the ever increasing number of tourists. Moreover, since bathers are rarer and rarer on the beach most shacks and bars have disappeared from the sea front it has become a natural spot to patronize as it caters for so many tastes and priorities!
I have already visited and written about a few places and will continue for some time!

This time I visited Sea Zoo!

I classified it as a Hawaiian bar restaurant, but I could have followed their own title of “Healthy Dining and Bar”!
And thanks to the new concept it is open all year round!

When open it has all kinds of board menu outside to peruse before entering!

Not only food for lunch and dinner but drinks of all kinds all day long!

Although it is also open in winter it definitely has a summer flavor about it!

And do not forget this also a bar! LOL

Definitely the place for craft beer lovers although all kinds of drinks are on offer!

Even at lunch I would not pass the opportunity to enjoy a tasty craft beer!

A la carte food changing all the time!

But the lunch sets are not only well above average but also so reasonably priced!

Set lunches are served with a “mini salad” which has not nothing “mini” about it!

Italian organic pasta in Peperocino style with sardine whiting/shirasu from Mochimune!

Healthy (no oil or water used!) coconuts chicken curry!

No risk of getting fat here, that is if you do not abuse the booze! LOL
But definitely a good bet anytime you visit Mochimune1

French Bistro Cuisine: Dinner at Ninosa in Shizuoka City!

Service: Kind and attentive. Very informative, too!
Equipment & facilities: overall very clean. Excellent washroom.
Prices: reasonable~slightly expensive
Strong points: Inventive and seasonal French bistro style cuisine. Great products. Short but excellent wine list.

Ninosa, in spite of their well earned reputation suffered from their somewhat distant location until they moved last year t the newly developed and highly popular part of Hitoyoda Cho near Komagata Street.
Which means it can be crowded at lunch time!

Dinners are a better bet although it might be a good idea to reserve, especially on week-ends!

The other day we finally managed to visit the place for the first time since it moved to its present address!
Dinner menus are basically a la carte although you may have a full course if you agree on it in advance!
Mind you, I do prefer to explore the menu board for a better choice!

Their wine list, although short is very solid with reasonably-priced to expensive offerings as well as wine by the glass!

Scrumptious seasonal quiche coming as a-toshi with the first drink!

If you are two of you I recommend the assorted starters as it will allow to taste no less than five different starters offered independently on the menu!

Very unusual white asparaguses served luciolla squids and wild mountain vegetables!

Splendid beef stewed in black beer! A must!

Top class creme brulee with home-made caramel ice cream!

And coffee served as it should be!

Looking forward to our next visit!

Italian Trattoria Lunch at Terra Costa in Shizuoka City!

Service: kind, smiling attentive
Equipment and facilities: very clean overall. Excellent separate gender wwashroom. Car park
Prices: very reasonable
Strong points:
fine Italian style trattoria. Excellent local products. Large portions.

I must admit it was a surprise to find this uncomplicated, modest and above average Italian trattoria along the sea shore in South Shizuoka away from the crowds and even surprised to find it crowded!
If you go there for lunch make a point to reserve your seats (actually you will be offered a plate of fried potatoes for the effort! good hospitality!)!

They do have a long enough menu but before you check the other menu know that the best deal is to choose a “set menu” as in above picture!
If you are two, three of more you will be able to choose all different dishes to share together!
The three of us opted for the 1,630 yen (tax included) menu with an original ice tea, a starters plate and a choice of pizza, pasta and risotto each! Plus a choice of desserts and coffee!
Very reasonable when you consider the size of the portions!

Incidentally there is also an enormous set lunch for two at 3,700 ye, tax included for two persons!

Let me show the menus for complete perusal!

The pizza menu!

The Pasta menu, part 1!

The pasta part 2 and risotto menu!

The sweets and cakes menu!

Now, what did we share?

The plate of starters/antipasti misto!
This was the main reason we ended up with full stomachs at the end! Well above average and excellent fresh produce!

Quatro formaggio/four cheese pizza!

Crab tomato sauce spaghetti!

Porcini mushrooms cream risotto!

Chocolate cake, tiramisu and creme brulee for dessert!
And coffee to wash it down.
Pity we were driving, otherwise a glass of wine would have been welcome! LOL

Ice Creams and Fruit Parfaits at La Palette in Mochimune, Shizuoka City!

Service: Kind, smiling and attentive
Equipment: Spotless clean. Excellent washroom
Prices: reasonable
Strong points: Fruit parfaits, ice creams and coffee! Terrace upstairs

For the past two years now Mochimune in Shizuoka City has literally been through a rebirth form its ashes of different era when people flocked to the beaches and seaside cafes and bars.
Now, very few people go to the beach but for hobby fishing and an occasional barbecue.
Mochimune had to reinvent itself. With the venue of a hot spring, some fine new bars and restaurants, a microbrewery and a whole complex of single floor hotels the city is completely changing and attracting an ever increasing flock of new tourists.

Count a 15~20 minutes walk from Mochimune JR Station, and although car parking is not difficult, some exercise will be welcome before you find the place along the street running parallel to the seafront!

Ice creams come into all kinds of favors but I particularly like their fruit parfaits!
Above is their classical double flavor ice cream balls topped with strawberries with black coffee!

Tiramisu style coffee ice cream, vanilla ice cream and nuts served with coffee!

By fine weather grab a seat on the second floor terrace to enjoy coffee, ice creams, or even wine and craft beer!

The last time we went there, that is on a sunny day near the end of the winter we enjoyed this beautiful seasonal fresh strawberries (cultivated in winter in Shizuoka) ice cream parfait!

For the sweet tooth away from the crowds!

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Sanwa Brewery Junmai Daiginjo!

Sanwa Brewery in Shimizu Ku, Shzuoka City is already producing standard 180ml bottles, but they have recently come up with a cute blue vase-shaped bottle. The Missus is impatiently waiting to use it as a small flower vase! LOL

For practical and esthetic reasons the “label” is used to seal the top!

You have to read it on both sides!

And on top!

Rice milled down to 50%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in January 2020

Clarity: very clear
Color: very faint golden hue
Aroma: soft, fruity, discreet, pleasant. Faint pineapple and pears.

Tasting: soft attack warming up the palate. Junmai petillant. Dry and fruity. Pears.
Tends to spread all over the palate, almost aggressively with food in a complete transformation although flavors do not vanish!
Comes back to original state once away fro food, but with the appearance of coffee beans and mikan.
Will take an even drier turn with desserts.

Comments: very fine sake, arguably bets appreciated on its own as it tends to greatly vary with food, although thatin itself becomes a very interesting trait!

Recommended pairings: light food and s greens such as asparaguses and fresh oysters. otherwise would change too much!

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: One Cup Series 16: Sanwa Brewery Garyubai junmai ginjo homarefuji, 120th Anniversary of Shimizu Port!

Finally Sanwa Brewery in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City has joined the One Cup Sake Movement! LOL

They had many reasons to do beside the obvious business advantages.
First it became an opportunity to introduce the local mascot and remind people that Mount Fuji stands in Shizuoka Prefecture (and Yamanashi Prefecture! And certainly not in Kanagawa Prefecture or Tokyo!)!

It also commemorates the 120th Anniversary of the founding of modern times Shimizu Port!

This sake was made with locally grown Homare Fuji rice!

Rice: Homare Fuji (Shizuoka Prefecture)
Rice milled down to 50%
Alcohol: 16 degrees
Bottled in December 2019

Clarity: very clear
Color: very light golden hue
Aroma: light, fruity, dry. Pears, pineapple, green apples

Tasting: strong dry attack backed with junmai petillant. Almonds, pineapple, nuts, oranges.
disappears quickly enough finishing on a very dry note.
Takes on a milder turn with food and nuttier with still a dry finish.
Drier almonds and oranges and junmai petillant making a strong comeback once away from food.

Comments: very dry and strong sake for a Garyubai by Sanwa Brewery.
Comparatively uncomplicated, solid, dependable sake.
Despite its high status of junmai ginjo a sake fit for any food, especially heavy or izakaya cuisine.

Recommended pairings: grilled meats, stews, nabemono, cheese.
