After finding out that the Tsukiji fish market was closed and that it closed some Wednesdays, a friend and I decided to visit Tsurutontan restaurant. I thought I’d be daring and try out an unusual appetizer. It wasn’t too bad but I didn’t love it. The item on the right are frog legs I believe.. and they’re quite raw!
Tried out Osaka’s famous type of cooking; Kushikatsu. Lightly fried foods on skewer sticks. I ordered a 10 skewer meal and they cooked it one piece at a time 🙂 The sauces were tasteful. I thought the mechanic used to squeeze out the lemon juice was pretty cool
Finally tried some sushi! First time trying sea urchin and it wasn’t too bad. The yellow item is herring roe and it wasn’t a favourite =S interesting texture though. My favourite was the tuna! Omg, delicious. It was fatty tuna and I’ve never tried it before. It just melts in your mouth. I also tried Abalone for the first time and it was quite crunchy. Overall, I enjoyed the platter because I tried some new things and it offered different textures.
