先日墓参ついでに来店しました。最近ご無沙汰していたので、多分1年半ぶり。我が家のオススメはフグの皮&唐揚げ。唐揚げはもちろんカナトフグですが、揚げ物にするならカナトフグで十分。我が家の評価は今回も「安心安全な食事処」。お代はいつもの様にお一人様2000円以下。ランチタイムとしてはセーフ。 その他の情報です。回転寿司としては門司港が本店になっているようですが、本業の魚屋は下関生まれ・・・のはず。数年前銀座5丁目にも進出。やるね!

ランチ・タイムを過ぎて一時ころだったが、一人でランチできるかどうか、入店してみる。OKとのことで、「平家御膳」を注文。1620円。ひととおり食べるものはある。ランチには十分だろう。ここは、他所からの観光がてらの人がふぐコースを食べるところのようだ。部屋からの眺めはいいし、そういう人たちには向いているだろう。私は実は初めて入店したのだ。フグや海の幸なら、私の場合、ここまで来る理由がなかったのだ。個室が中心のようだが、椅子の席の部屋とバー・カウンターのある一角もある。ちょうど、一時過ぎで、バー・カウンターのところでピアノとサックスのジャズ演奏が始まった。他のサイトを見ていると、安倍総理が下関に在宅している時は、ここを利用するらしい。個室があるからだろう。海外の友人を案内するときには、私も候補の一つにしたい。その場合、関門海峡の景色を楽しむなら昼間がいいと思う。

Fugu Cuisine Shinoda

Reviewed By mahboiii

Be warned that if like me you never tried fugu before, you might be extremely severely disappointed. The taste was so subtle I almost didn't taste it, and for 25 dollars the plate of fugu, that sure did not go well. I also had some fried whale that tasted great, and the restaurant is in typical Japanese fashion, with waitresses in geta and kimono and everything, but this is a very costly place for a fish with almost no taste.

I ate here based on a Lonely Planet review. I was excited to eat sushi/sashimi from a restaurant above a Japanese fish market. When I arrived for lunch at 12:45 it was packed. There was a 15-20 minute wait. Once seated, I took my place at a long counter where the sushi/sashimi would come around on a revolving conveyor belt which was pretty cool. The prices of the fish are determined by the color of the plate they come on. However, there were mostly the higher priced plates that seemed to be going around. After spending about 45 minutes here I managed to sample 5 different fish that ranged in price from 190-480 yen per plate of two pieces. The fatty tuna was by far the best. I tried whale tongue which was chewy with a smoked flavor. The sushi was average. I felt that the selection they were putting out was somewhat limited, yet the menu itself was quite extensive. I would have stayed longer, but after waiting for more fish to appear, I just kept seeing the same pieces going around. I am still glad I went, even just for the experience.

A lot of tourists gather here every weekend and holiday during the lunch time to enjoy all kinds of inexpensive Sushi sold piece by piece in the Karato Fishmarket. They take them out to sit on the deck along the Kanmon Straits. Roof top of the Karato Fishmarket is my favorite place to eat those sushi and to have a rest looking down the Straits busy with ships running both ways.

下関駅前にある大衆酒場です。11月末家人の希望で初来店しました。ネット検索で見つけたらしく、吉田類が放浪した店だから我が家もぜひとのことでした。御意! 念のため平日夕方6時カウンター席お2人様で電話予約。一皿4500円のフク刺だけ注文しあとは当日というスタイル。時間通り入店すると、店内はすでに常連客で盛り上がっていました。さすが吉田類。せごしやタコ刺しをつまみながら根気よく待つこと約40分、いよいよ真打ち登場。私は主に皮と湯引き、家人は主に刺身を担当。普通に美味でした。家人が歓声をあげたのは会計。なんと8900円。つまり、フク刺4500円+それ以外お酒も含めて4400円ということですが、これには私も脱帽。一期一会の観光客にとって大将やスタッフの無愛想ぶりは玉にキズですが、我が家はあと何回かは通ってみるでしょう。

I had a seafood Donburi(sashimi & Rice) which was very fresh and contains many kinds of fishes. US$9 is very cost effective and much much better than that I had in Amakusa,Kumamoto(US$11) They run fishery and restaurant so the elderly waitresses are very busy and that is the reason why they are not so smiling nor kind. Anyway no one would complain as the taste is good and the price inexpensive!

This canteen was located on the second floor of the fish market "Karato market" in Shimonoseki city.We arrived the market at 11:40 am but there was long queue in front of the canteen. We waited for 40 minutes. We placed an order before entering the shop.I ordered the sea urchin set meal which contained a sea urchin box.The quality of sea urchin was so so, but I felt that it was quite affordable.
