Last night, the Missus and I went out to celebrate Christmas our own way by having dinner at Sushi Ko, our favourite sushi restaurant in Shizuoka City!
Our first order, a “sashimi no moriawase/sashimi plate”.
All seafood came from Shizuoka Prefecture!

Incidentally, the “Oyakata/Main Chef”, Mr. Oda knowing that all pictures will be published later on my blogs always make a special effort as for presentation, an extra luxury in a great sushi restaurant!

From left to right:
“Mebachi Maguro/Big-eyed Tuna” on a “shiso/perilla” leaf and finely cut daikon, fresh “Sakura Ebi/Cherry Blossom Shrimp” from Yui with grated ginger and cucumber, “Aburi Kinmeidai/slightly grilled Golden Eyes Snapper/Seabream”, lemon, “Shiso no Hana/Perilla Flowers, “Ishidai/Parrot bass, Stone Flounder, Striped Knifejaw” and freshly grated wasabi!

“Maguro zuke/marinated tuna” sushi came in “akami/lean part” and “chutoro/semi-fat part”.

“Anago/Conger Eel” is usually served as nigiri, but one ought try it as tenpura!

“Botan ebi/Large sweet prawns” are just in season with their eggs on top! A delicacy that is going to make Rowena and other Foodie friends moan again!

Their freshness will be cause to celebrate when you savour their heads deep-fried!

“Tachiuo/Scabbard Fish” is best served slightly grilled (“aburi”) on one side (up) with a few sprigs of “Me-negi/leek sprouts”, “Momijioroshi/freshly grated daikon with chili pepper” and a touch of ponzu instead of soy sauce!

“Hirame/sole” needs only a little salt and lemon juice. No soy sauce!

“Sakura/Raw Horse meat” for the carnivores with “tare/sauce”, grated ginger and chpped thin leeks!

An exquisite “Hotate maki/Scallops roll”!

Perfectly balanced, I’m it will tempt Allison and Rick

This “shirashizushi/mixed sushi on top of rice” was for our neighbours, but I couldn’t resist taking a picture with Mr. Oda’s complicity!

This pair of “Sakura Gunkan/Salmon Roe Motherships” had disappeared under the succulent eggs!

The hot “Chyawanmushi/Japanese salted pudding” is the perfect dish to keep you warm before going out in the cold!

We did have a couple more and quite a few glasses!
