Local Seafood Bowls at Jiroumaru in Mochimune Harbour, Shizuoka City!

Service: rough but friendly
Equipment & Facilities: Overall very clean. Excellent shared washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Local seafood!

Mochimune and its harbour in Shizuoka City is going through ea real revolution since CSA Estate Agents have taken on the task to renovate he whole harbour area, hotels, restaurants and even hotsprings!
One particular spot is the new Minato Yokocho/Harbour Alley sheltering all kinds of restaurants. Incidentally it will mean more articles!
At the very entrance of the alley is a restaurant specialising in local seafood bowls: Jiroumaru!

Tidbits served with some of the bowls!

Mochimune is the most famous shrasu/sardine whiting fishing harbor in Japan, so the shirasu will appear in many guises, but there are great produce of the sea!

During our last visit one chose the ‘susume donburi/Coice of the day donburi! It is served with miso soup and tidbits!

Featuring raw and cooked shirasu/sardine whiting, raw and boiled sakuraebi/Cherry shrimps, raw maguro/tuna, and tamagoyaki/ Japanese omelet!With chopped scallions, grated ginger and pickled ginger!

As for me I had an even more extravagant (but reasonably-priced!) Kakiage donburi/deep-fried seafood bowl with tidbits including pickles and boiled shirasu!

Perfect with a beer!

Enormous kakiage mainly including local sakuraebi and chopped vegetables!

Plenty more left to explore at day and at night!
