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.

Having welcomed the new year, our spirits begin to stir anew. Young shoots are starting to grow, even under the snow. January also happens to be the year’s most abundant period for seasonal fish. At Kyoto Wakuden, we deliver the blessings of a harsh winter and small tidings of spring with our cuisine.

That familiar nip in the air means winter is soon approaching. Sunny days will still fall upon the Pacific Ocean side, but gray snow-laden clouds will bear down on the Sea of Japan with heavy storms and precipitation. And yet, the fruits of the sea will become firmer and even more delicious. At Wakuden, crab and amberjack tuna (buri) from the Sea of Japan will rendezvous with wild game from the mountains, along with seasonal vegetables whose flavor has been enriched by frost-covered mornings. The wintry atmospheric pattern—high pressure in the west and low pressure in the east—brings delicious tidings from the north.
