Oyodo, Kita “shave ice cafe”
I had dinner at the “shave ice cafe“, a hot-pot restaurant in south Oyodo.
With over ten different soups and numerous kinds of dips, you can surely have a blast with your friends at this place that offers a huge variety of flavors to enjoy!
Aside from their hot pots is an a la carte menu with lots too choose from with the Matsuzaka pork dumplings being the most popular item!
“Original Gyoza” (¥380)
A crispy and fragrant outside with a juicy and sweet Mastusaka pork filling. Delicious!
As you can see, they have many different dips available!
For these dips, just take whatever you like from the pot, add some dip to it and enjoy. What fun it is to be able to try so many different flavors (^^
They also have “Dip Gyoza”, dumplings that use these dips as a filling!
“Dip Gyoza Tofu Cheese” (¥430)
Although the dip is already inside, they also spread it on the outside so you can tell what flavor it is!
It’s so good!
The added tender flavor of cheese makes it twice as delicious!
“Dip Gyoza Garlic Ginger” (¥430)
“Dip Gyoza Black Mizo” (¥430)
I can’t believe my taste buds!
The sweet and savory black miso produces a rich and delicious flavor!
“Double Motsu Nabe” (¥1,280/Person, 3 people portion pictured)
With your choice between a dark-brown miso soup and a light-brown miso soup, you can enjoy this nabe with a healthy portion of A5 grade Japanese beef tripe!
The staff pour both varieties of soup in!
Motsu Nabe with light-brown miso…
My goodness, it’s amazing! Amazing!
The flavor is mild but you can definitely taste the savory richness of the white miso in the soup. It marinates into the jiggly tripe, making it incredibly delicious!
Motsu Nabe with dark-brown miso…
Astounding! So delicious!
Behind the sweetness of the miso is a nice spicy accent. A splendid complement to the meat and vegetables!
We added “Japanese beef tendon” (¥980) as a topping. Now it simmers…
The tendons have a wonderful texture and are marinated nicely by the rich soup. Absolutely delicious!
This is apparently a newly developed soup for the hot pot. They let me have a little taste!
If you order this hot pot, this soup comes out along with dipping sauce and spices. Then, you can choose what you like from a number of ingredients to be cooked in the soup.
They only charge for the ingredients, which means that the soup, sauce, and spices come free!
What an insane bargain for this hot pot!
Sesame sauce and spices!
I ordered just these from the various available options(^^
The soup is simmering…
The soup is savory but very gentle, bringing out the flavors of the other ingredients. You can really taste the pleasant savory flavor of this shrimp!
When I tried the pork rips with sesame sauce…
So incredibly delicious!
It has such a gentle flavor, I feel like I could eat it for an eternity!
I found something on the menu that really caught my eye!
I just had to eat it, so I ordered the “Ebi Tamago Curry” (¥980)!
It has a wonderful, spicy aroma!
I portioned it with rice and…
It has a truly rich and savory spice to it. Coupled with the mildness of the egg and the savory flavor of the shrimp, I practically couldn’t stop!
Ah, I’m full. Completely, 100%, satisfied!!
Everything, from the hot pot to the a la carte menu, were amazing.
With a spacious interior and a cleanly, cafe style atmosphere, a female customer on her own would feel comfortable coming in. They’ve even written “welcoming groups of one”, making it easy to come on in (^^
Be it one person, or with a big group of people, this is a wonderful place where I believe everyone will be satisfied by the delicious food!
And I think I might just have to stop by again!
