Monkfish hotpot May 20, 2014
Isegen, a 180-year old restaurant specializing in anko nabe (monkfish hot pot).
The restaurant is a 2-story traditional Japanese house. When we entered, the staff in a traditional yukata(?) led us to the second-floor tatami seating area.
We ordered the anko nabe (monkfish hot pot) with thrthe 5-course menu. On the table, the anko nabe was cooking.
We were served with different appetizers, all from the monkfish - from a foie gras type dish to a baby squid, to jelly-type dish, anko-age (delish!), and another small dish I don't know was made of.
When the hotpot was ready, it was soooo good. Using the leftover broth from the hotpot, the staff mixed rice with scrambled egg and scallions together. It was our last dish of our course meal. The dinner cost us ¥8,500 per person. Well worth it!
The restaurant kept the feel of old Japan. The staff gracious and considerate, and the food delicious!
