After walking for a while, we wanted to have a late lunch. I mean we haven’t had sushi yet. in Japan and we’re dying to try out some Hokkaido sushi. Here is the Otaru Canal. Quite famous apparently. Alot of boutique shops along the canal.
Here is the glass wear shop. We didn’t have time to go in!
Ro Man Kan – Translated as Romantic shop (something like that). Little ornaments and little souvenirs, jewellery etc.
Here it is. Theres a few sushi restuarants along this canal. This is meant to be the most famous one. Otaru Mazasushi.
We sat at the bar because i wanted an interaction with the chef. I told him a spoke some Japanese and he was delighted. I had a sushi set with an appetiser, and IK had another set. Some tofu to start.
My set had some squid and uni with some dipping sauce.
Weird looking devil.
Heres the counter. Typical Japanese sushi restaurant.
Pretty quiet during lunch time. You have to have sushi over the counter, so they can put it on your plate.
Heres IK’s set. Typical flare of sushi. It was delicious.
Mine was a bit smaller because i had the appetiser. Wasn’t bad.
Miso soup to finish.
Rating : 14/20
Thoughts : Well, it was nice sushi, nice environment, but i was expecting a bit more with the sushi. Wasn’t bad, but maybe different types of sushi. Next time maybe we should go for the omakase. Or if a local took us, might have been different.
Dish of the day : no doubt you want sushi…
