Adventure #133: Ezo Seafood (Hirafu)

Updated on 27 January 2014 at Ezo Seafood (Take 2) 

We didn't pick this restaurant initially but the reviews were quite good and G was recommended this restaurant by one of the skiers in our ski class.  Lucky we did as the food quality here is excellent.  The restaurant is somewhat similar to the Malaysian style seafood joints where the fresh seafood is displayed, you pick the seafood you want and then decide how you want it cooked. 

The focal point of the restaurant was the chilled counter full of various seafood from fish to clams to crabs to.....etc

The proprietor is a fluent Jap speaking Aussie chap (and his Japanese wife)
Chilled Hokkaido snow crab legs

The crab legs were out of this world and priced as such.  We planned to savour it between G and I, with a share for the older one as she is normally reasonably adventurous with food.   Little did we realize that it was the little one who was munching down those legs.  Aiyo...even the little one knows a good thing when she taste one.  Poor parents...literally. 

Fish and chips
The fish and chips was ordered for the little one but she preferred the crab legs.  It was an interesting dish as the fish used was salmon.  Never had that one before.

Braised fish

The simple braised fish in soy sauce was excellent.  The kids loved it mixed with Japanese rice.  The little one even preferred this to the fish and chips.

Steamed clams in sake

Clam chowder...Japanese style
We certainly overdid it on the quantity but everything looked and sounded so delicous. We were not disappointed and thoroughly recommend anybody visiting Hirafu to try this place out.
