It's coming up to Mom's birthday, and this year we decided to celebrate it with a few small groups of close friends and relatives. For the first meal, I decided to take them to something a little different - for them, that is. Lunch at Gyodoike (魚道生) seemed like a pretty good idea…
Olive flounder (平目)
Barracuda (魳) - lightly torched.
North Pacific giant octopus (水蛸) - I love how they have this here… Very nice.
Yellowtail (鰤) - nicely torched and very yummy.
I noticed last time, though, the palate actually became a lot drier and spicier when chilled a little too much.
