Comments
from the
Chef
Spiny lobster is the special recommendation of the
month. We highly recommend it. In August, the price
of a spiny lobster lowers with the season. We prepare
the special course menu using a spiny lobster.

August is the last chance to enjoy a delicious abalone.
Abalone from Sajima fishi port is normally purple
abalone. Honestly, tell you that this season has less
number of abalone. However, the fishing area will
expand beginning from this month so we can expect to
get more. Up until last month, the fishing area was
limited but this month will increase and the prices will
drop.

All vegetables listed above are summer products. You
can protect yourself from the summer heat by eating
them, especially, sticky vegetables such as Okura and
Moroheiya.

Our abalone is caught at Sajima fish port in Miura
Peninsula. It is tender and very tasty. Generally
speaking, the black face is softer and more delicious
and the price is a little expensive. However, those are
not separated at Sajima fishing port because every
abalone is same with delicious taste.

Peach
Comments

Chef
The last season for peaches is just around the
corner. Honestly the taste of peaches of this season
is not as good as I expected. However, right after the
place of production was moved to Gunma prefecture,
the taste of peaches has gotten much sweeter and
taster due to the better weather.
