we arrived fukuoka hakataeki by train from beppu about noon time on 28.1.2015. 🙂
after checking into our hotel JR Kyushu Hotel Blossom Fukuoka on the west side of hakataeki, we decided to take the subway to tenjin to walk around & explore the area.
it was a tenjin underground city with huge shopping streets – tenjin chikagai.
we planned to go to the canal city & maybe try out the yatai 屋台 at nakasu in the evening, so decided to go back to hotel for a rest first.
my wife & i had always enjoyed sashimi & sushi from the supermarkets. this time we bought a few from mitsukoshi at tenjin to enjoy our own omakase sashimi treat in the hotel room…haha!^^
the uni, needless to say, was heavenly – so sweet, fragrant, melt in the mouth.
& the toro, it was excellent! maybe it was chutoro but it was quite fatty, & simply lovely!^^
hotate always good, plump, sweet, tasty.
we had not take sayori (flying fish or half-beak) for long time since the good old days at unkai (tanglin road) & mezzanine as we don’t go (super rare) sushi counter nowadays in singapore. this was good though i now don’t miss it much.
& we had a top quality sushi platter, with akagai, torigai, awabi (abalone), hotate & atlantic surf clam etc.
all these came to 4500yen! & absolutely restaurant quality in the best jap restaurants in singapore. the box of uni alone would cost S$60++, likely S$80++.
such a wonderful feasting!^^
