French Gastronomy: Shizuoka Seafood and Vegetables at Chez Satsukawa!

Service: Very friendly and easy-going, more professional in the “room”.
Facilities: very Clean and beautiful washroom!
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: French food in Izakaya style. Great sake and wines!

Chez Satsukawa has the great merit to both provide relaxation at their counter and sophistication in their dining-room for the pleasure of individuals, couples and groups alike!

Even in a comparably relaxed atmosphere it is the attention brought to the little details that make the difference!

Natural source water “Wasan” collected in Numazu City at the foot of Mount Fuji!

They bake their own bread!

The Chef/Owner has always had a preference for seafood as shown above by a carpaccio of “kinnaku/金無 sole” caught off Miho Peninsula in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!

Prime fish served with prime olive oil and condiments!

Beautifully chopped fresh Shizuoka leeks and home-made myoga pickles for a great color contribution to a succulent dish!

Being Japanese, Fujio Satsukawa has a great love for raw seafood but his real love is for Southern France Cuisine when it comes to cooking the catch of the sea such as the above red cuttlefish from the Suruga Bay prepared with a ratatouille!

Splendid red cuttlefish!

Having cleaned the cuttlefish and filled it with Shizuoka vegetables prepared as a rough ratatouille, he flambeed it before cooking it in olive oil until the flesh was tender but not overcooked. Great balance in bite and savors!

More Shizuoka-grown vegetables were lightly deep-fried to add more bite and flavors to the whole dish!
This is the kind of manipulation/marriage you can expect form a top-class chef working from a multinational vantage!
