  1. Watakuchi ga genki desu. The sashimi looks delicious but the fish head is definitely hard to get used to!

  2. Hi Amy, glad to hear you are well!
    Actually this place specialises in the infamous ‘living sashimi’, the unfortunate creature – in this case a gurnard – was still gasping and shaking its head about as we ate its sweet, sweet flesh.
    We also had living sashimi prawns (euphemistically called ‘Dancing’ prawns) and some quite excellent oysters. Also, we indulged in some freshly taken bamboo shoot that was simmered very gently in a delicate dashi, with some wakame seaweed.
    Afterwards the bones and head of the fish were taken away and made into miso soup, which finished our meal.

  3. Wow! Omoshiroi!! I had watched the Korean movie Old Boy when the main character ate a whole octopus that was alive and that was probably the most shocking part. Please describe what it feels like to eat a living fish and prawns. I, of course, enjoy oysters, but they don’t move when you eat them. Bamboo shoots in dashi sounds delicious.
    Genki desu ka? Will you find out soon about your RFP?

  4. I’m fine thanks, haven’t heard anything yet, so am assuming the worst.
    The fish is filleted and the prawns are shelled (but obviously with head still on) so you just eat the flesh whilst the rest of the creature moves about. Good live oysters (and other shellfish) should wriggle a bit when you put lemon on them.
    Fishing last year I ate octopus that was still alive. Only the legs though. It moves about a lot and the sucker cups stick to your tongue and mouth so I followed it with a good slug of beer to stun it.

  5. Maybe I would also need beer to stun me… The oysters we get here are not local they are flown in, some I am sure though “fresh” they are more morose than lively. Especially after reading the Sushi Economy, I have no hope of eating fresh fish around here. I really hope the RFP is goes through. Gambate! I can’t live vicariously through you otherwise!!
