Tasty Rice Topped with Broiled Atka Mackerel Combo -Tatsumi in Suttsu-
October 25th, 2014
Tatsumi (たつ巳) is an izakaya (居酒屋 * Japanese style bara tavern) in Suttu town and was founded in 1984. They runs the izakaya at night and runs a restaurant at lunchtime. I heard that rice topped with broiled atka mackerel combo (ホッケ飯) could be eaten, and I visited here. Suttu is the most caching of Atka mackerel in Japan. A local dish using the atka mackerel is the rice topped with the broiled atka mackerel combo. The broiled atka mackerel is put on the rice baked on an iron plate. Customers pour salty-sweet sauce into there and eat it. 3 side dishes and miso soup are a set. The customers can eat it at 3 restaurants in Suttu town.
I visited here around 11:30 on weekdays and was firstcomer. I sat at a counter seat and ordered the rice topped with the broiled atka mackerel meal. The price was JPY 980. Approximately 15 minutes later, the rice topped with the broiled atka mackerel meal was served. Contents of combo are the rice topped with the broiled atka mackerel, sashimi (sliced raw fish), boiled dishes, miller's thumb sculpin roe pickled in soy sauce and pickle.
I ate the broiled atka mackerel at once. Salty-sweet sauce tasted just right. The atka mackerel skin had a crispy texture. It was the miller's thumb sculpin roe pickled in soy sauce that I was impressed. Those were smaller than salmon roe, and those with snap texture and mild was very tasty. It might be a dish offered by chance this time. However, I was surprised at the taste of miller's thumb sculpin roe pickled in soy sauce. This might be for a rare dish.
By the way, visitors came to the restaurant one after another while I was waiting the dish. Most of the visitors were locals. An owner explained keeping the dish waiting for approximately 30 minutes to the visitors who came later. Still the visitors waited for the dish. It is a popular restaurant after all.
