Freshwater trout

Not as much meat on this as I would have liked. But still nice.


My dictionary translates this raw fish as Amberjack. Lovely.

Bonito is similar to tuna. It was served raw here with various toppings, including garlic. Brilliant taste.

Raw cabbage

A bowl of raw cabbage with a bit of sauce drizzled on it. The accompanying dip in the small bowl had quite a kick to it. Raw cabbage goes surprisingly well with beer.


A lovely bowl of shallots. Quite a strong taste.

Udon are thick noodles. One dips them into the meat soup on the left and then they are gobbled up, remembering that it is rude not to slurp. In this particular place, the dish comes with seaweed and some deep fried vegetables. A brilliant lunch time food.

Another one that is difficult to translate. This is fish carcass boiled in a stock with various vegetables added. There is still some fish meat on the carcass. It tasted great.

Pigs' ears - mimiga

Shredded pigs' ears. Lovely!


This is hard to translate. Many kinds of minced raw fish are mixed with salt and then steamed.

Sashimi mountain

This is a mountain of horseradish decorated with many different kinds of raw fish and seafood, including octopus, tuna etc.
