It's a simple Japanese restaurant that serves authentic Japanese food. The place is quite spacious, it has a zen feel, lighting is a bit dim, but not too dim. Ideal for business, intimate dates, but of course can still be for family lunches and dinners.
Hall upon entering
Then an open kitchen at the far end
We were able to experience Fugu in 4 ways. I had no idea puffer fish could be served in more ways than one!
First we were served this beautifully presented, almost see-through slices of Fugu.
A huge plate filled with Fugu, and then some sticks of spring onions, slices of lemon, and also slices of the other parts of the Fugu such as its tendons, skin, and belly (which by the way are all supposedly good for the skin and making you glow. Hence, we ate a lot of it! Haha!)
Just get a slice of fugu, put all the other elements inside, then roll. I love the taste of Fugu. It doesn't have that strong fishy taste. And the texture is somewhat gummy but in a good way.
Then mix these chilli radish and green onions together with the ponzu sauce and dip your fugu roll. Heaven!
The second dish is a hot pot treat. The remains of the other parts of the fish are then brought out along with some fresh veggies and mushrooms, and glass noodles.
The hot pot is prepared table-side...
Next up, a karaage dish! Some of the parts of the fugu breaded and deep-fried into a golden piece of beauty. I love how this dish doesn't seem to be too oily. And again it's not very fishy. This is also good with the ponzu sauce. So far, everything is! I love that ponzu sauce!
And lastly, congee fugu style! Using the remaining broth from the fugu hot pot, they combined some rice and eggs into one pot and stir it all together. A perfect way to end the meal!
*Corrected* This Blowfish / Fugu Set is P3,800++ Per Person, with a group minimum of 3 to 4 people, inclusive of sashimi and hotpot. Since the Fugu is ordered from Japan, a minimum of 4 days reservation is required.
But of course, fugu is not the only thing they serve. Here are just some of the other dishes at Kitsho!:
Take Nigiri Sushi (P850++)
Maguro Sashimi (Tuna) P320++
Kanikama Tempura ( P250++)
Ebi Tempura (P380++)
If you're in the area or you happen to check in at Trader's Hotel, Kitsho Japanese Restaurant and Sake Bar is really a must-try. It's not everyday you get to try eating a blowfish!
I've held a pufferfish before (against everyone's warnings :D) but I never thought it could be eaten. Interesting dining experience! Will give this a try one of these days when the boyfriend and I are feeling brave :DReplyDelete
It's really good! No need to worry it's really prepared well! :-)Delete
Oh god, i'm officially an idiot. Haven't eaten all day and then I drop by your blog? what was I thinking? Now I'm starving. And I want that unagi!!! Thanks, Richie. :pReplyDelete
But to be fair, kudos on trying the pufferfish! Did you get anything like tingling or numbness in your mouth like they say you get when you eat fugu?
Hi Barbie! :-) This is Rina, I was the one who wrote and tried the Fugu actually :-) No there wasn't any tingling / numbness feeling. It's really good and doesn't taste too fishy :-) I guess it's testament to how properly prepared the Fugu was? :-)Delete
Hahaha I know how you feel about visiting this site when you're hungry! :-)
Hi! I'd like to confirm if the dish is 3800++ per person or is it good for 3-4 people already? I called them and they said the 3800++ is per person and that I would have to order for a minimum of 3 people, so that's almost 14k an order. The person who answered doesn't seem to be very reliable though.ReplyDelete
Hi Hanna! I double checked and I stand corrected.. it really is P3,800 per person! thanks for the heads up :)ReplyDelete
