Fabulous Sushi Party with Live Music


We had no idea that Tsukiji Fish Market is off on Sunday!! Normally on weekdays, those narrow alleys are packed with people seeking fresh sea ingredients, however as you can see the picture not at all for this Sunday. But fortunately only one fish store was opened and it offered what we wanted to hold a Sushi party. Tuna, salmon roe, sardine, firefly squid, clam and more and more. And the outcome of those great ingredients is shown below. Actually, what made the Sushi tastier than last time was rice. This time we used different type of rice grain, Sasanisiki, which is not so sticky compared with Koshihikari, this image cannot explain though… With the successful delicious Sushi,
Another friend played the fabulous guitar with harmonica. Suddenly he changed the dining space to Karaoke room. I want thank for a talent of my friends, as Sushi chef and guitar solo musician.



まったく。。予期せぬことに日曜の築地は静かだった。。いつもは新鮮な魚を求める人でごった返す細い路地も今日に限っては、閑古鳥。しかーし、幸運にも一件だけお店が開いていたから、寿司パーティーの開催にはかろうじて影響なしでした。まぐろ、いくら、いわし、ホタルイカ、ハマグリ、等々。幼なじみの友人はそれらの新鮮な素材を見事にさばき、一つ一つの皿の上に並べていきます。写真では分からないかもしれないけど、今回の寿司の一番の決め手は米。やっぱり寿司には粘りの強すぎるコシヒカリじゃなくて、ササニシキだね。そんな美味しい寿司に加えて、また別の友人がギター+ハーモニカで弾き語ってくれました。突如ダイニング・ルームがカラオケ・ルームにちぇーんじ!とにかくオイシイ芸をもつ友達に感謝感謝の一日でした。
