Tanba Chestnuts

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.

Hamo (Conger Eel)
and Matsutake Mushrooms

We call it an “encounter” when fruits of the sea and the mountains pair well together. And among them, hamo (conger eel) and matsutake mushrooms are an exceptionally divine match. The few matsutake mushrooms that make their appearance at the close of the rainy season pack a refreshing aroma and clear taste. Combined with hamo soup stock, their flavor is enhanced and a delightful dish is born.

Cockles

Cockles (torigai) from Tango’s Miyazu Bay are very delicate. Cultivating large ones requires not only meticulous care but also good luck with the weather. Roasting these slowly grown cockles brings out their richly sweet flavor. Don’t miss out on this short early summer season.

Kamo Eggplant

The season for Takagamine Kamo eggplant is upon us. Freshly picked each morning, Kyoto’s heirloom eggplants are known for their delicate texture and their squat and round shape. Early season Kamo eggplants, seedless and deliciously sweet and mild, are especially prized. We serve them grilled over charcoal with a light brushing of soy sauce and an accompaniment of ginger.

Bamboo shoots

“Morning dug” bamboo shoots, grown in Oharano at the foot of Kyoto’s western mountains, have a sharply refreshing taste free of bitterness. We give them a simple charcoal grill to bring out their sweet aroma and give them a delightfully crisp texture.

Moroko

Moroko, a variety of grouper, can only be found in Lake Biwa. As its numbers decrease with each year, the fish becomes an increasingly valuable catch. Moroko season runs from December until early spring, when the females are packed full of roe. This fish may not be much to look at, but it sure is delicious. We offer it grilled with salt and scented with ginger.
