After a holiday in France gorging ourselves with sublime but heavy food, it was a pleasure and a relief to visit our favorite sushi restaurant in Shizuoka City, namely Sushi Ko, although we ended eating more than planned! LOL

Today’s o-toshi was whelk shellfish in wasabi dressing!

The sake of the month was a Junmai ginjo by Kokko Brewery in Fukuroi City!


Plenty of local sashimi to choose from!

Kuchimidai/口美鯛 (also called Menada/目奈陀・目魚): haarder, redlip mullet

Tastes like seabream with the bit of sole flesh!

The sushi millefeuille of the day!

Ika soumen/cuttlefish/squid served sliced as thin as noodles!

Akaika/赤烏賊: red squid from Suruga bay!

And its tentacles served in karaage/deep-fried style!

Sanma/秋刀魚、青串魚: mackerel pike is in season!
Best served grilled!

Maguro zuke/marinated nigiri!

Sakura/Horsemeat nigiri!

Botan ebi/large sweet prawn with their eggs! Very difficult to obtain as such!

The heads of the same served deep-fried!

Ikura ko- donburi!

Negitoro maki!

Anakyu maki/cucumber and broiled conger eel!

Shiro ebi/white shrimp gunkan!

An international dish: Scallops and shrimps gratin!


And miso shiru to finish!
