Fresh Sea Urchin Rice Bowl Is Too Tasty -Misaki in Shakotan-
June 15th, 2015
Misaki (みさき) is a restaurant in Shakotan and was founded in 1973. An owner is a fisherman and is famous for eating a seafood dish. It opens only during summer season (from late April to October). Because a fresh sea urchin can be eaten from mid June when the sea urchin fishing is released, visitors seem to increase. Because it started a bussiness at 09:00, 6 groups of visitors have already lined up when I arrived around 08:40. It is really popular.
I entered it and sat at a table. There were many tables and family customers seem to enjoy. Short-spined Sea Urchin Rice Bowl (赤ばふんウニ丼) was best recommended when I read a menu. Limited to 20 dishes a day, and the price was JPY 3950. I hesitated to spend so much money on the short-spined sea urchin rice bowl, and I ordered Purple Sea Urchin Rice Bowl (ムラサキウニのウニ丼). The price was JPY 2450. Approximately 10 minutes later, the purple sea urchin rice bowl was served. This was off the hook when I ate at once. The fresh sea urchin was an exquisite food. It was really tasty!
While I ate the purple sea urchin rice bowl, the visitors entered the restraunt one after another and ordered the short-spined sea urchin rice bowl. It was popular after all. I became close to the visitor who came from Omiya city, Saitama prefecture, and he seemed to line up at 06:30 when I chatted with him. He seemed to eat the purple sea urchin together to compare a taste of the short-spined sea urchin with the purple sea urchin. Then the taste of the short-spined sea urchin seemed to stand out. He did not seem to have eaten so tasty sea urchin. I regret that I should have eaten the short-spined sea urchin rice bowl a little.
