American Gastronomy: Double Over Rice Lunch at Tequila’s Diner in Shizuoka City!

Service: Shy but very attentive
Equipment and Facilities: Overall very clean. Superb toilets. “Veranda seats” by fine weather in warm season
Prices: Reasonable considering the size of the portions!
Strong points: Hamburgers and other American favorites

Slow food prepared on order!

Tequila’s Diner, although they have acquired fame far beyond our Prefecture, is not all about hamburgers, be it lunch or dinner!
They have super lass rice dishes including double over, triple over, dirty rice and garlic rice! Perfect for people who fancy a change from bread/buns and an easier way to eat basically the same food!

And don’t forget to check all the drinks available, especially the small fridge near the entrance full of canned craft beers!

My order of the day: Double Over Rice Avocado & Cheese!
Now, talking of cheese thus is definetly far better than some vauted places who served their fare with suparmrket sliced cheese! And the avocado is big and soft, the chips plentiful!
The patty is cut by knife everyday for a superb bite and grilled over charcoal! Extravagant!

Another (hamburger) article coming soon!

American Gastronomy: American Hamburger at California Diner JACKAL in Shizuoka City!

Service: Shy but very attentive
Equipment and Facilities: Overall very clean. Excellent washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: American hamburgers, Tex Mex cuisine, American craft beer and good variety of drinks.

This was my first visit because it had been recommended by an American friend of mine (from Mid West, not California! LOL). For me it was on he other side of town but I bravely rode my bicycle and reached the place 20 minutes later. It is a bit away from the hubbub of Shizuoka City but it has a car park and it is busy for both lunch and dinner!

The lay out is simple with a counter bar and tables and seats but comfortable enough.

I went there for lunch but night owls will be happy to learn that there a good enough variety of drinks from American craft beers to very powerful spirits !

The lunch menu! Only in Japanese but the language is the same! I am pretty sure they manage enough English for explanations!

As it was my first visit I kept my order simple: Cheese and bacon hamburger!

With one of my favorite American carft beers: Anchor Brewing!

Served with salad!

Plenty of French fries (chips in England!)!

The hamburger! Reall appetizing!

When it comes to eating a hamburger I do not follow “tradition”! I do not insert in a paper wrapping and eat it whole. I just like to to open it and it element by element!

Tasty meat with a good bite as it should be!

Now, there were many other tempting things on the menu! I surely don’t mind cycling again to sample the other tidbits!

“AKITA” Sushi Millefeuille by Kenta Birukawa at Sushi Shokunin Birukawa in Shizuoka City!

Service: shy but extremely attentive and kind
Equipment & Facilities: overall very clean. Excellent washroom. Non-smoking private room possible
Prices: reasonable (that is for true sushi!)
Strong points: Sushi mainly created with local seafood. 3-year old wasabi root exclusively used. Grilled and deep-fried fish, tempura. Excellent list of sake and shochu.

The other day as usual knowing that the place would be full before 6pm I called beforehand at 5 and barely managed to grab two seats at the counter of Sushi Shokujin Birukawa Sushi Restaurant in Shizuoka City!
In spite of its location away from Shizuoka JR Station it is a busy place filled with faithful regulars. Nobody is privileged to their own seats so it is better to reserve or try your luck at opening time! That is unless the plaace is already fully booked!

Anyway, we once again challenged our good friend, chef Kenta Birukawa who moved some 16 years ago to Shizuoka from his native Akita Prefecture to another Sushi Millefeuille! It is not listed on the menu, but if you are recommended in person by your servant he will be happy enough to concoct you an original one according to your taste and priorities!

The “seafood side”!

Kenta’s Akita Prefecture is famous for its wild mountain vegetables and as he had just received some he included them in this millefeuille to call it “AKITA” Sushi Millefeuille!

All kinds of seafood on the top including tuna, seabream, sole and squid!

Plenty of fresh vegetables on one half of the sides!
One could easily make such a sushi millefuille a vegetarian one!

And so much more inside!
Did I mention that there were some more special “decoration side servings”? lol

Can’t wait for the next one!

Craft Beers and Tex Mex Gastronomy at Golden Nectar in Shizuoka City!

Service: Shy but very friendly and attentive
Equipment and facilities: Overall very clean. Excellent washroom.
Prices: Reasonable to slightly expensive
Strong points: Craft beers! Tex Mex gastronomy. Craft beer tasting sets/

Golden Nectar has deservedly established its name in Shizuoka City for a couple of years now, and it is increasingly becoming busy especially on week ends be it sunny or rainy!
It consists of a high stool bar counter where you can see all the craft beers served on the tap. Bear in mind they change regularly! I would advise to try a full sample drinking set of them!

Check the list of the day!

Tables are available for small groups and customers wanting more comfort or less exposure!

Now, it is not all craft beers on the tap but there are plenty of other American craft beers in bottles and cans inside the refrigerated display near the entrance! Choose your bottle or can and it will be served in glasses by the staff!. Pictures are welcome!

North Coast Brewing Acme IPA!

Aurora Koppyalis from San Diego!

Hazy Little Thing IPA by Sierra Nevada Brewing!

Amarilla Gorilla IPA by Smog City Brewery!

Deftones Phantm Bride IPA by Belching Beaver Brewery!

Another IPA by Smog City Brewing!

now, look at the menus! Plenty of salads for the health conscious!

My personal favorite, Texas caviar carefully made with local fresh vegetables and buritos!

As for food, I do have a suggestion: first go to loaded fries and choose the cheesy fries!

Scrumptious fries by themselves,…

But order them together with fish fritters!

And you have a Tex Mex fish and chips!

Excellent fried fish on its own, actually!
But check the rest of the menu!
Always something to discover!

Sushi Dinner at Miyako Sushi in Shizuoka City!

Service: Very friendly and informative.
Equipment & facilities: old but very clean. Traditional but clean Japanese washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: great products, local and from all over japan. Great sake list.

in Shizuoka City, you do not need to be near the sea to find great sushi and fish products. The latter probably follow you along your trips!
The other day I was invited by a local regular fr dinner at Miyako Sushi on the other side of the Abe River and as far as Abeguchi Shinden, in the middle of the country, not far from the tea fields.
Miyako Sushi is what you call a true traditional country sushi restaurant.
No pretense here. The marine products a top-class and the selection of sake a discovery!
And most customers are local so you know you are coming to a great place, maybe old fashioned but so laid back!
Not only sushi,and sashimi but also cooked food await you there!

Superlative “Nanbu Bijin” sake from faraway Iwate Prefecture!
Check with the staff as the sake list tends to change quickly!

O-toshi/snack served with first drink, featuring otaru ika/lucciolla squid!

Traditional kappa maki/cucumber roll for the kid among us!

first superb sashimi selection!

Deep fried kuro hanpene/sardine paste cake and kisu/sillago!

A rare sake, Sawa no I for Tokyo of all places!

The second superb sashimi selection!

Grilled shishamo/literally leaf fish! A typical Japanese specialty!

Sushi nigiri galore!

And instead of dessert we had Chyawanmushi/Japanese salted hot pudding!

Go and explore the country along the Abe River! Surprises await for you there!

Address: Shizuoka City, Aoi Ku, Abeguchi Shinden, 517-5

HIGHOCTANE/HAIOKU by Nick Itoh in Shizuoka City

American Gastronomy and Craft Beers at “12” in Shizuoka City!

Service: Shy but very kind and attentive
Equipment: Spotless clean. Excellent washroom. Non smoking
Prices: Slighly expensive
Strong Points: American craft beers. Excellent bar food. Beers regularly changed. Large live sports screens.

“12” is an unusual name for a bar or restaurant. The owner, a fan of all sports in Seattle, USA, be they the Seattle Supersonics basketball tea, the Seattle Seahawks American football team or the Seattle Mariners baseball team, has taken a liking for their number “12” jerseys, hence the name of the stablishment. Incidentally all the games of these teams can be viewed live or later on no less than three big screens.
The whole design was conceived by American Shizuoka City resident, Derrek Buston, who has actually just opened his own bar/brewery, West Coast Brewery, in Mochimune, and some of his brews will be served on the tap at “12” from June!

It is located just next to the side entrance torii/sacred gate of Ogushi Shrine. You can surmise that all drinkers are automatically blessed! LOL

The food there, notwithstanding their common household names, is definitely of a better variety for all tastes!
My favorite is the fish and chips (Brirish food for you, but better than in Great Britain!)!

Made with fresh cod and fried on order!

Served with spicy French fries (they are Belgian!) fried on order and homemade coleslaw!

And authentic red wine vinegar!

For the moment all craft beers on the tap or in cans afrom mainly Seattle and its surroundings but sometimes from other places such as Wyoming!
There ar nine craft beers served on the tap and regularly changed. And fully described on the menu!
I actually have a liking for their canned beers and ciders as there are so many to explore!

Incidentally, vegetarians and vegans shouldn’t need  worry as they have a beautiful organic salad on the menu for you!

To be continued, of course!

Dinner at Numazu Uogashi Nagare Sushi, Shizuoka Parche Restaurant

Service: Shy but kind and attentive
Equipment: Overall very clean. Excellent washroom. Entirely non-smoking
Prices: reasonable
Strong points: Very fresh fish, mainly local. Excellent cooked fish and seafood. many local sake!

Numazu Uogashi restaurants are so called because they originate from a company based in Nymazu City in the eastern part of Shizuoka Prefecture which is connected with the fishing harbour and its trade.
This very placelocated on the first floor of Parche Department Store (Inside Shizuoka JR Station) just in front of Associa Hotel used to be a conveyor-style sushi restaurant but it was recencently converted into a “nagare Sushi restaurant”, a system invented by this very company!

Each table or seat has its own computer panel to choose and order food from. You can browse the whole at ease, choose or modify your order until you confirm it. Then it will reach you through a special rolling floor to be diverted at the last second to your seat only!

That is what we ordered on that particular day!
Katsuo/bonito sashimi!

Steamed oysters! Enormous!

They also serve izakaya style dishes: tukune/minced chicken brochettes!

One of the evry good local sake after the initial beer! They also have wine on the menu!

Enormous multiple seafood gunkan sushi!

Closer view!

Deep-fried globe fish on the bone! To eat with your fingers!

Stir-fried tuna!

Local seafood sushi nigiri set!

And asari/cockles miso soup to washi all down!
Perfect for limited purses!
