RECOMMENDED DISHES

Seto Inland Sea Kurodai Set2,068Yen (incl. tax)

A meal set where you can enjoy the blessings of the Seto Inland Sea.
Stretching between Miyajima (one of the “Three Views of Japan”) and the town of Ono is the Onoseto Strait; this area is a cornucopia of rich seafood, including Hiroshima’s famous oysters. It is also home to the largest population of “kurodai” fish (Japanese black seabream).
It is said that the kurodai dwelling in the sea of the Onoseto Strait, which has a rich growing environment with abundant food, is of particularly excellent quality.
For this set, loose roasted kurodai removed from the bone is topped on a bowl of rice, along with grated yamaimo (Japanese mountain yam) and soy sauce, then a special soup stock is poured to serve as ochazuke.
The set also includes oyster and conger eel tempura and sashimi.
