I haven’t had dinner at Kiriko in a while, so I popped in unannounced this past Wednesday for a (relatively) quick dinner, and to catch up with Ken-san and Shinji-san. Always a good time chatting and sharing some stories, and it was fun to try some new dishes, as well as revisit some Kiriko classics (and downright just great sushi). I can’t believe I forgot to take a photo of a rice bowl Ken-san gave me, one with sake lees-marinated (for 3 years) fugu roe (picture a “drunken” tobiko) and sea cucumber intestines (konowata), both of which he brought back from his visit back to Japan last month.
