Young Sweetfish

The young sweetfish (ayu) from Lake Biwa herald the beginning of summer. Their petite size—about the length of an index finger—belies a surprisingly full-bodied flavor. We add refreshing white miso paste and punchy sweet onions and wild garlic to bring out the savory and bitter palate of the small fish.Read more >

Clams

Good news! Clams have arrived from Miyazu, Tango. Weighing in at over 200 grams each, these giants are full of plump and tender meat. We like to pair them with fresh seasonal vegetables and wild edible plants. The delicate flavor and aroma of the dish is pleasing to the nose and palate, and to the whole body.

Nariai-yaki
(Matsutake Mushrooms and Pike Conger Eel)

When the hot summer ends and the temperatures drop, the mountain’s bounties start rolling in. After spawning their eggs, pike conger eel (hamo) store up nutrients for the winter. The hamo this season are extra plump and full of deep flavor that pairs especially well with matsutake mushrooms. By slow-roasting the fatty hamo over charcoal, the fragrant matsutake mushrooms absorb the savoriness of the fish and the flavors synergize to create a complete dish. Served with sauce and a pickled plum cooked in dashi.

Tanba Chestnuts

Mountain harvests have begun to arrive. Tanba chestnuts, moist and delicately sweet. Gingko nuts that glisten when put to a flame. The aromas of each fruit combine to make a tantalizing dish.
