Tokyo local cuisine
Tsukishima, Chuo-ku, Tokyo is a nostalgic town where private houses from the early Showa period remain when entering the alley. The “Tsukishima Nishinaka-dori Shopping Street” is called “Monjaya Street”, and there are 75 shops offering Monjayaki. When you fry your favorite ingredients such as cabbage, fried ball, squid, cherry shrimp, meat, seafood, and vegetables, build a bank with them and pour thinly melted flour around. Mix slowly and cook, and season with sauce or curry powder. If you press it against an iron plate just before eating, you can enjoy a crisp and fragrant flavor.
The word sushi appeared for the first time in a historical material called “Young Age” in 718. However, sushi at that time was called “unfamiliar” and was a preserved food made by immersing seafood in rice and salt for a long period of time. The taste and shape were completely different from the current nigiri sushi. By the way, “Yuzushishi”, which is popular in Shiga Prefecture, is said to be the oldest unfamiliar in Japan.
It was around 1820 that raw fish began to be used. It is said that a chef named Hanayayoe was born in Tokyo at the time called Edo. At that time, it was sold at stalls, and it was a cheap and fast common food. Many Japanese sushi restaurants don’t have a kitchen, and the chefs face the customers over the counter. Nigiri sushi, mainly in Tokyo, spread throughout Japan with the development of refrigerators and other modern cultures.
The price of each sushi varies depending on the shop, which is a characteristic of sushi.
Typical examples of Edo-mae sushi include sardines such as kohada and salmon, boiled conger and steamed shrimp, and fried eggs.
３．Bowl of rice and fried fish（天丼）
Tempura, a classic Japanese food, has different seeds and deep-fried oil depending on its location. Tempura made with 100% sesame oil, white kisses, sea bream and prawns caught in Edo Bay is called Edo-mae tempura and has taken root in the area around Tokyo Bay. However, the price of sesame oil is high, and now there are only a few shops that serve this edomae tempura, but in the vicinity of Asakusa, the tempura using this edomae tempura is very popular with locals and tourists. The fragrance of sesame oil and the sweet and spicy sauce are an appetizing dish.
