The chef tells us about the specificities of the restaurant and about the charm of Mochimune.
Founded 40 years in Hirono.
My father opened this restaurant in Hirono (East area of Mochimune) 40 years ago and we are still running with my parents and myself.
Alongside classic set menus, we also offer the authentic Japanese cuisines that includes my experience in the past as a chef outside. The special menus are on a blackboard, it changes on daily basis according to the seasonal food we get on the day.
Having certain confidence in preparation and ingredients.
I am absolutely confident in our method of food.
We serve only fresh fish not frozen or farmed fish as the fresh one brings out the tasty flavors.
First serve the fresh fish from the sea as Sashimi dish then serve as Sushi dish when the fresh fish becomes slightly matured taste. It's all about the preparation, how the fresh fish has been carefully prepped. Only a few times a year, we get Tuna from Oma in Aomori prefecture, what we have today is not from Oma but really is a bluefin tuna.
Vegetables are also freshly delivered directly from the market, the best in season.
Shirasu is the local specialties, it should be the best quality.
One of the best Shirasu has certain crispy texture, however we don't mention it on the menu as we are unable to guarantee our customers that top quality every time.
Especially when it comes to our regular customers, they know all about Shirasu. So we offer only when we get the real Shirasu in Mochimune.
