Tsukudani specialty shop born from the technique of a top class Japanese cuisine restaurant
Ume Ichie is run by a popular Kyoto cuisine restaurant, Chiso Kogetsu, which offers tsukudani for take away (tsukudani is a kind of condiment in which little fish or seaweed are simmered with sweetened soy sauce). Many long years of experience preparing traditional Kyoto cuisine restaurant has enabled them to achieve their delicacy. Since the most famous menu item at Chiso Kogetsu is the hamo, or conger eel dishes, Ume Ichie also offers fine tsukudani using conger eels. Conger eels from Tokushima or Yamaguchi prefecture are carefully prepared before being simmered. It takes tremendous patience and a specialized technique to extract all the tiny bones of conger eels. Another recommended item is the Hamo Sudare, the conger eel fish cake. There are two kinds of Hamo Sudare: one white (630 yen) and the other grilled (735 yen), both of which go well with sour plum pickles and spicy soy sauce. The photo is of the spicy tsukudani, Sansho Chirimen Hirihiri (750 yen) containing grains and powdered Japanese pepper.
