We Love Alfonsino Fish!
I posted about this tasty fish, alfonsino about two months ago. But as you can probably tell, this is an expensive donburi (rice bowl) dish. Kinme is the same thing as Kinmedai -- red fish with golden eyes. There was a food-tasting event this afternoon, and I managed to sneak in and take some photos.
Well, I did more than just taking photos. I actually tasted one of these mini-bowls. The fillet was grilled with teriyaki sauce, which was just a little too sweet for me.
eight restaurants in the city serves this Kinme donburi. What's in the photo above is the version served at a traditional Japanese restaurant named Kagetsu.
And you know what? The best part is, after eating about half of this donburi dish, pouring dashi broth into the bowl and eating it like chazuke. :)
* Please note that the availability of alfonsino dish depends on the catch.
