Susannah heard about a kind of restaurant where you can catch your own fish, decide how it’s cooked and then eat it right away.
So Susannah’s friend Chihiro took us to one. Most of the pictures and videos in this post are actually hers.
The restaurant had these huge pools of fish:
I think Susannah was having a good time:
After getting your table and ordering drinks, at any point you could go over to one of the pools to try and catch your fish. Hooks, rods, bait, and nets were provided. We caught a flounder and a sea breem.
After getting your fish (which is easier said than done) you choose how you want it cooked (deep fried, grilled, sushi, sashimi, soup, and more) and they bring it to the kitchen.
They give it a nice presentation, and bring it to the table.
Flounder. Half deep fried, and half sashimi (raw).
Grilled Japanese style (with a sweet soy sauce glaze).
The head was used to make a broth, and it was served with rice and tea (chazuke).
Everything was was surprisingly good, and it was fun to get our own fish.
