1Must Eat !
Moroko is unusual fish which is difficult to catch every day. If the day when you visit has moroko, you are lucky and must order it! Raw morokos are cooked by charcoal grill in front of us. Outside is crispy and inside is soft, but it is perfectly cooked and goes well with lemon or mix seasonings (soy sauce and vinegar and ginger)
2Must Eat !
Boiled radish or pickled radish are famous but, texture of this steamed radish is pretty different from these. It is very soft and mild. Radish is one of the famous vegetables in Kyoto during a winter season.
3Let's Try !
The left photo is yellow tail which is ready to eat in this season (December). Radish, chopped green onions and wasabi are rolled with sliced yellow tail. Yellow tail is fatty and it melt in your mouse after your first bite. Presentation is perfect .
