(Kyoto-96/Takohachi)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food and wine tour

新京極と蛸薬師通りにある「割烹蛸八」へ。もう数え切れないほどお世話になっている小さな名店。

Went to "Kappo Takoyachi" on Shinkyogoku and Takoyakushi Dori.  Been to this small famous restaurant countless times.

壁に貼られた冬メニューは先月と同じものだが、旬の素材などメニューに載っていないものは、冒頭の注文時に口頭で教えてくれる。今回のお目当ては、冬の味覚、くも子(タラの白子)にあん肝、そして絶対に外せないコッペ蟹。

The winter menu on the wall was the same as last month's, but if there were any items not on the menu, such as seasonal ingredients, they tell orally when place the order at the beginning.  This time, wanted to try the winter delicacies, kumoko (cod milt), ankimo (monkfish liver), and the must-have Koppe-kani (crab).

お通しは、菊菜(春菊)の胡麻和え。

The appetizer was chrysanthemum marinated with sesame paste.

大好きな蛸八のあん肝。

My favorite Ankimo (monkfish liver) from Takohachi.

必ず頼む、小芋の唐揚げ。

Always ordered fried small potatoes.

この季節は、必ずくも子を頂く。焼きか落としから選べるが、香ばしい焼きで。ぽん酢に一味唐辛子

In this season, always get kumoko (cod milt).  Can choose to have it grilled or boiled, but prefer the grilled version.  It is served with ponzu vinegar and chili pepper.

牡蠣。焼きかフライから選べるが、いつもフライで。気付けばここまで前回と全く同じ。全く飽きない。美味しい幸せ。

Oysters.  Can choose from grilled or fried, but always went with fried.  So far, it was exactly the same as last time, but never get tired of it.  Delicious and happy.

そして、今冬初のコッペ蟹。コッペ蟹とは卵を抱えたズワイガニのメスの京都の丹後地方での呼び名。他県ではせこ蟹、香箱蟹とも。無我夢中であっという間に完食。

蛸ハは、夏も秋も冬もいつも美味しく毎回行っている。ご馳走さまでした。また来月も予約。

And the first Koppe-kani (crab) of this winter. Koppe-kani is the name given to female snow crabs carrying eggs in the Tango region of Kyoto.  In other prefectures, it is also called Seko-kani or Kanako-kani.  Ate it all up in no time.
Takohachi is always delicious in summer, autumn, and winter, and always visit there.  Thanks for the meal.  Will be back next month.

帰りの寺町通り。蛸ハは満席だったが、夜の街は、まだまだ人がまばら。クリスマスの飾り付け。京都ではクリスマス飾りや音楽は控えめ。雪の結晶が札幌のよう。

Teramachi Dori on the way home.  Takohachi was full, but there were still a few people on the street at night.  Christmas decorations.  In Kyoto, Christmas decorations and music were modest.  The snowflakes were like those in Sapporo.

四条通りでは、いよいよ南座の正面に「まねき看板」が上げられた。そろそろ師走。

On Shijo Dori, the "Maneki" (actors' name sign) was finally raised in front of Minami-za Theater.  It's becoming the end of the year.
