Overflow of Sashimi

When I was going back to the university one day, I passed by a restaurant near the Kita-urawa train station and saw a poster advertising on some special offer. I saw two fishes and beer bottles on the poster and I started to read in detail. With my limited understanding of Japanese by just recognising the Kanji (Chinese) characters, I understood that is was an offer of sashimi tabehodai (eat-all-you-can) with nomihodai (drink-all-you-can), but limited to two days only.


Being a sashimi lover, I couldn't forget about it and I told my Thai friend Tap. He was so happy to hear the news as it is a rare chance to find eat-all-you-can sashimi in Japan! So there we went.


Although the sashimi was limited to just two types of fish, they are no low quality fishes. We got maguro (black tuna) and hamachi (I don't know the name in English)!


To top it off, every fish slice was huge and thick! Each slice was about 5~10mm! No other thin-sliced sashimi is comparable to a thick and juicy one!


We were so happy eating and drinking and kept on ordering. I am a non-alcohol person but I miss-ordered a Rai-chi Sa-wa (lychee sour) which had no indication of alcohol at all, but it did in its content. Another mistake was the Rok-ku Cha Hai (high tea). It was some green tea and liquor mix which tasted like grass!


We ended up eating four and a half plates of the maguro and hamachi sashimi and we felt like two happy fishes thereafter. Then we asked for the bill.


Our faces turned green when we saw the figure on the bill. It was ¥10,100! The waitress who gave us the bill was also stunt by our surprised look and she took back the bill for a recheck. It was actually a mistake. They had mistakenly put all the other items that the next table had ordered on our bill. What a relief for the two of us! At the end, we paid only ¥3,000 for the both of us.

This has got to be my most satisfying meal in Japan. I don't think I can have sashimi in such quality and quantity back in Malaysia by paying only ¥1,500.

Taking a break from your usual theme CK?

I was thinking the same thing Sandy was. For that kind of money you want to give it back! Sashimi isn't my favorite, but that looks awesome!

Hamachi is a name for a network program that connects different computers, like LAN using an internet connection. =D Never knew they named it after a fish. =.=
