I had dinner at Hachijuro Shoten after one year interval or so.
It is very popular shop and it is hard to reserve.
But there may be some vacant seats if you go there except from 7 to 8 p.m. (But you’d better confirm before you go to the shop all the same)
That day we were two, the waitress led us to the counter table against wall.
My 1st drink was cider (シードル, 490 yen)
The paper says, “This cider taste like beer” I agreed !
Marinated olive as appetizer.
Raw oysters from Tasmania (タスマニア産生牡蠣, 790 yen)
Those oysters itself were good. But this sour sauce (similar to ratatouille) wasn’t good.
It tasted strong and I couldn’t taste those oysters well.
Then I ordered white wine that is imported by this shop directly from Spain.
Verdejo Branco (ラガルディーホ・ブランコ, 490 yen)
Horse meat with tartar sauce and yolk (馬肉のタルタル卵黄添え, 790 yen)
It’s like yukhoe. Mixing the meat and raw yolk altogether and ate it. This meat wasn’t fatty and tasted light. I like it.
Well, eating horse meat as raw is not still restricted by law, and won’t for the time being.
Today’s quiche (本日のキッシュ, 490 yen)
It was like cake without sweetness. Plenty of the cheese sauce on it was tasty, too ;)
Beef tongue stew with demi-glace sauce (牛タンの煮込み デミソース仕立て, 890 yen)
Though small pieces of beef tongue, it tasted good and was soft :)
The sauce wasn’t thicker than expected. It was good for me.
Creamy risotto with soft roe and sea urchin (白子と雲丹のクリームリゾット, 1090 yen)
This risotto was splendid !
The rice is purple rice.
Creamy sauce, and soft roe and sea urchin on it.
Speaking of Hachijuro Shoten, I had known that Tsukiji have the branch.
Ayase branch and Okachimachi branch was open before I know.
