Take-out/”Demae” Series (1)

The Japan Blog List

Please check Shizuoka Gourmet Blog for all the gastronomy in Shizuoka Prefecture!



In Japanese take-out or take-away translates as “demae”/出前.
It is a practical way to take home sushi from your favourite sushi bar if you do not have the time to eat there or if you want to appease your better (worse?) half for eating out without her/his permission!
Mind you, not all sushi restaurants will accept to ake them, especially the ones upscale. Unless they already know you and that you will eat their sushi early enough.

The above picture shows a take-out I ordered at Sushi Ko in Shizuoka City:
-ika-mentaiko-shiso maki: roll containg raw cuttle-fish, cod roe preserved in chili pepper (for my wife, as I do not like it personally) and perilla leaf
-botan ebi nigiri: botan ebi is a large type of prawn very sweet raw topped with its blue roe (only in season!)
-natto-ume-shiso maki: roll containing fermented beans, pickled Japanese plum and perilla leaf (I’m sure Allison will like that particular roll!)

More to come!
