Masamiya Gourmet

Fresh seafood, delivered to your doorstep by Miya who brings in produce from Japan twice a week. Over the last few months, we have had the opportunity to taste various tuna (from Bluefin to Bigeye). Here are the pics of Buri (wild) as compared to Hamachi and my attempt at buri sashimi and tuna poke.

Did you know that

a. Snow crabs from Ishikawa pref. are called Kanou and the crabs are caught during Nov-March. Female crabs are called Koubako and the season for the females end on 29th December.

b. Yellowtail fished in winter in Ishikawa pref. are called Kan-Buri and this is the time when they are at their fattest.

c. The snow crab in the Fukui pref. are known as Echizen (male) and Seiko (female).

d. Echizen Shimp denotes a rare shrimp from Fukui pref. that are even sweeter than the famous Akaebi sweet shrimp.

 

Here are some pics of the seminar held at Kanda Wadatsumi restaurant in Tras Street. No doubt we enjoyed the sake as well!
