Eat your catch!

Are you a fan of fishing? Considering the love of Britons for fish and chips, I thought it would be a good idea to recommend a great spot for anyone visiting Japan. I’m talking about the restaurant called ZAUO which is really popular among tourists, therefore, they have a menu in English. I went to their branch in Shinjuku, Tokyo.


Basically, you can catch your own fish and then the restaurant cooks it for you in the way you  like it: raw, grilled, boiled, fried, deep fried, sushi, in a soup etc.


If you fail to catch the fish you want you can still order it but it will be a bit more expensive. If you’re successful like me then you can enjoy eating your catch at a lower price than the market value. I like raw fish so here is how my catch ( a flounder) looked like ten minutes later.



At ZAUO you can also catch abalone, lobsters and other seafood.

Something that I found bizarre and surprisingly tasty was that you can actually eat the bones of the fish. They simply deep fry the skeleton of the flounder and then it’s ready to eat!


Overall, the fish is fresh and catching it was fun. 🙂 I think if such a restaurant opens in England that would be great!
