Original Pera-yaki Nishimura

Soul food of Tosashimizu "pera-yaki "

Founded in 1957, "Ganso Pera-yaki Nishi-mura "is, as the name "Ganso Pera-yaki" suggests, the birthplace of "Pera-yaki ", which is also the soul food of Tosashimizu City. This floury dish, which is slightly different from Osaka's okonomiyaki, is a new menu item that was created because the third generation of the restaurant's owner could not eat meat.

The "perayaki ", a longtime favorite at this restaurant, looks like a thinner version of okonomiyaki, and the ingredients are very simple. It is filled with a variety of ingredients such as leeks, baby sardines, jakoten (fish cake), and tempura of ground fish, and then tossed in a sauce along with bonito flakes and aonori (green soybean sprouts). The fresh and plump jakoten and shirasu (baby sardines) that can only be found in Tosa are also a big attraction of this dish.

"At the original Pelayaki Nishi-mura ", they are particular about the fire on the teppan when grilling, and a charcoal bowl is placed under the teppan. This cooking method has been passed down since the establishment of the restaurant.

Depending on the size, you can enjoy Kochi's B-class gourmet food at a price that will make your wallet happy, ranging from 350 yen to 800 yen. You can also choose the spiciness of the sauce that is generously placed on the entire dish, and there are four types to choose from: two kinds of Worcester sauce, sweet tonkatsu sauce, and savory soy sauce. Since you can choose the size and sauce, and it is easy to eat, it is popular among students and children, and many families gather at the restaurant to enjoy pera-yaki together.

Vacuum-packed mail order also available.

In addition, there is a mail-order package of pera-yaki grilled over charcoal that comes vacuum-packed. It also comes with three kinds of sauces, so you can easily enjoy the original flavor at home.

brothel fronting as a tea house, inn, restaurant, etc.

At "Usamonoya ", located near the coast in Usa Town, Tosa City, you can enjoy Uruume Iwashi (Urume Iwashi) caught by hand in a variety of ways and cooked to your heart's content. Usa Town was originally called "Ururame no machi "and is famous for "maruboshi ", which is dried whole fish. In order for many people to enjoy Urume Iwashi, the whole town serves it as a local delicacy.

"What is Usamon Ippon Fishing Uruume Iwashi "

In the fishing port of Usa Town, fish are caught by fishing instead of using nets. This is because fishing with nets causes the fish to rub against each other in the net, which heats them up and puts a lot of stress on them. Since Urume Iwashi is a delicate fish, the best way to catch Urume Iwashi is to catch it by itself in ice water without using a net. Usa Town has developed its own hooks and created a system that allows the fish to be placed in ice water without touching it by hand. The time from when the fish is caught to when it is immersed in ice water is strictly limited to less than 50 seconds, and thanks to this speedy system, delicious aurume sardines can be served.

"In addition to the Urume Iwashi "Bukkake Zuke Don "and Urume Iwashi Kabayaki Don ", which is a bowl of hot rice topped with a broiled Urume Iwashi, you can also enjoy a bowl of rice topped with freshly pickled sea bream or fresh mackerel, depending on the catch of the day. In addition, there are many a la carte dishes, so you can enjoy fried seafood, sashimi, and other fresh fish in a variety of cooking methods.
