汐風 outside
Fish has become more expensive than beef now a days and its also difficult to find a real good fish restaurants in Tokyo even though the best fish from all over Japan are sold at Tsukiji fish market. Top sushi restaurants are an exception, but its always better to eat the fish where it was caught at. But one of the few exceptions is SHIOKAZE at Nakameguro/Yutenji. The full name of Shiokaze is FUNAYADO KAPPO SHIOKAZE, and Funayado Kappo means fisherman's inn style restaurant. These restaurants are usually near by the sea and serve down to earth dishes. The owner of these restaurants are usually fisherman themselves or have family members who are. Shiokaze's owner/chef is not a professional fisherman, but the main dishes served at his restaurant are usually caught by him.

汐風 kinme shabu1
Because of this, the menu changes weekly and sometimes daily, but best fish of that season will be served. I've always enjoyed fish shabu shabu, and my favorite is Kinmedai No Shabu Shabu. Kinmedai is alfonsino or gold eye sea bream. Its in season between fall to spring.

Pick up a slice and just dip it in boiling broth and when its cooked dip it in their original ponzu sauce.

汐風 zoushi
At the very end like all nabe's, you should order Zosui, which is rice porridge. The waiter will take out whatever is left in the nabe (hot pot), then add rice, a beaten egg, and green onions. Most nabe's will always end will either adding rice or noodles to the broth.

汐風 satsumaage
You should order whatever course menu is available that day. Its usually between 6,000-8,000 yen per person. Besides the nabe, it will come will sashimi, and 2 or 3 others dishes. The above is one of my favorite dishes Satsumaage, which is deep fried fish cake.

汐風 sat lunch
They also serve lunch as well. 3-5 dishes to choose from which comes with rice and miso soup.

All fish lovers agree that Shiokaze is one of the top 5 fish restaurants in Tokyo including the expensive kaiseki or sushi restaurants, but don't expect any fancy interior because at Shiokaze all that matters is the food. Wide variety of sake is also available. Only negative of Shiokaze is that its located in between 2 train stations and you need to either walk 10-15 min from these stations. They also have another location in Kojimachi as well. So, if you are staying near the center of Tokyo, you might want to dine there. But if you want to eat the owner/chef's food, do visit their Kamimeguro location.
