Impressive Grilled Fish Lunch


A Japanese restaurant, Takishita, is a hot spot for lunch in Azabu-juban, which serves voluminous fillets cooked over a charcoal fire.

The restaurant usually has five kinds of seasonal fish dishes including, for example, salmon, Japanese horse mackerel, mackerel, brevoort, marbled sole, red sea bream, true sardine, scombrops gilberti, and so on. All dishes are the same in price (1,260 yen), and each of them is served with rice, miso soup, and a couple of dishes such as cooked vegetables, grated Japanese radish, and some pickles (it’s traditional Japanese home cooking).

I chose large Japanese horse mackerel this day - I couldn’t resist the attractions of the appetizing large fish, though the photo doesn’t convey the size well. The other fillets were also 2 - 3 times as large as ones served at regular restaurants. Watching voluminous fishes on a charcoal-burning grill make me heart jump. It’s a moment I realizes I'm Japanese.

Not only the rice has free refills, which is common, but the grated Japanese radish also has free refills! I was very happy since I love it. The radish is a popular garnish that complements a grilled fish in Japan. It provides a refreshing aftertaste and stimulates digestion.

It’s always crowded, but if you feel I should like a grilled fish for lunch in Azabu-juban, go there. This is the right place to have it.
