Tosaichiba Zushi

Bonito Grilled with Straws By Yourself

You can eat Kochi's specialty wara-yaki (grilled with straws) bonito grilled by yourself in front of the restaurant. It's popular to eat it with ponzu (vinegar and say sauce) but it's an expert way to eat bonito with salt in Kochi. Grate a Himalayas rock salt and try it out.


Enjoy Highest Grade Wagyu! Sukiyaki Of 'Tosa Aka-ushi'

Tosa Aka-ushi is called rare wagyu because of the small amount of shipment. You can enjoy it in the Japanese style inn. Tosa wagyu that grows in the great nature in Kochi, has a good chewiness and the more you chew the meat, more juicy flavor comes out. It's the superb sukiyaki.

Manger Sasa Takasone-Store

Light-Roasted Bonito Is Special! Quality Tosa Cuisine You Must Eat In Kochi

You can have traditional Tosa's cuisine such as lightly roasted bonito (Katsuo-no Tataki) and whale dishes (sukiyaki in this pic). Lightly roasted bonito is offered anywhere, but here is special! I really like their fatty and roasted savorily bonito served with relishes and their secret sauce.
