Kazuo Kawasumi/川澄一雄さん is a very enterprising businessman. After opening his first two restaurants in Kofu City and Hiratsuka City, he just started his third restaurant in busy Koya-machi in Shizuoka City and is already planning to open his fourth and last one all for himself in Shimada City after having made sure his family members are taking proper care of his establishments!
The entrance is unusual for a Kushiyaki-Yakitori Restaurant! You might be excused if you mistook it for a Chinese restaurant!
it opens at 4 in the afternoon and you will be offered a complimentary glass of beer if you enter the place before 6 o’clock!
The inside decoration is in complete contrast with the outside, showing the owner’s love for the sea!
Actually, Kazuo San does manage English so don’t worry if you can’t read the menu!
Ordering sets of 5, 10 or 20 sticks can become a good bargain!
The MOH at work, always with a smile!
Great sake available as this Garyubai by Sanwa Brewery in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!
Let me introduce what we sampled on that day!
Kawa negi/Chicken skin and chopped leeks.
Plenty of side dishes are on offer such as kimchi!
Sasami mentaiko (for the Missus!)/chicken fillets seasoned with spicy cod eggs.
Ninniku bekon/Garlic stems wrapped in bacon.
The specialty of the house: Tsukune! Minced chicken sticks!
Chicken liver in tare sauce (for me!).
Vegetables and deep-fried wantan salad.
Ebi Harumaki age/Deep-fried shrimps spring rolls!
Sasami wasabi/Chicken fillets seasoned with grated wasabi sauce!
Yakitroi/plain but beautiful chicken!
To be followed… So many more morsels to sample!
