Oden Hanakujira Kita branch
There are always lines to get a seat at one of the three Hanakujira branches in Fukushima.
Since this time I went at an early hour, I was able to snag a seat with smooth and timely assistance.
Because you sit in the packed counter seats, you naturally develop a sense of camaraderie with the other customers.
You always get excellent cost performance from old school vendor-style oden ~ ♪
You can enjoy a variety of classic items like potatoes, radish, and konjac, as well as try their unique innovative oden, so you will never run out of choices ~ (^ _-) – ☆
Hanakujira, the whale dish which the restaurant is named after, is also featured on the menu.
Contains plenty of green onion inside of a large fried tofu pouch.
Full of oden soup, it oozes with deliciousness ♪
The crunchiness of green onion is also what makes it so good ~ ♪
■ Beef tendon
Two skewers per serving. The slowly braised beef tendon is so tender, creamy, and yummy ☆ 彡
An enormous piece of radish that has been infused with flavor.
You will regret if you do not eat this very popular dish (^ _ ^;)
I love oden eggs.
I enjoy the eye-watering effect of eating it with plenty of mustard squeezed on top.
■Saezuri (whale tongue)
We stew whale tongue for hours until it becomes exquisitely tender.
The rich and deep flavors of saezuri go great with sake ♪
“Obake” is whale skin tossed in sumiso (vinegar & miso).
There’s no fishy smell at all, and the unique texture of it melting in your mouth is yummy ☆ 彡
