Komagata Dojou, Asakusa (駒形どぜう 浅草 東京), Tokyo, Japan

Loach, the snake like shape, was very familiar to Edo-kko (people living in Edo).

The loach was known as the fast food in Edo era. This restaurant keeps the Edo fast food style for three hundred years. The loach may have been the familiar ingredient for the people in Tokyo.

 
For the European or American people, this fish were never eaten in this area. On contrast, the Mainland Chinese or Taiwanese people have eaten loach. The cooking style may be different in the region.

 

The interior was traditional fast food restaurant in Japan. The hall was Tatami flooring and the wood bar was placed on the floor. These bars were like as the table for the customer. The staff will introduce customers the seat places on the floor to control the number of the customer in this small hall.

The loach was the fish living in the paddy field, pond or marsh. Japanese generally prefer the fish from sea but the loach is one of the popular fishes in Asakusa area.

 

The Dojou Nabe (loach pot) was served on the thin casting iron pan with braizer. The Negi were nicely coloured on the brown sauce and brown fishes. Loach was nice with soy sauce with Dashi soup stock. This pot was very simple but, makes you sent to Edo Era. This thin casting pan is easy to get warm the fishes on the pan.

 

The Dojou Kabayaki was lovely. Normally the Kabayaki was known as the Unagi (eel). The meat of the fish was nice texture and taste with sweet soy sauce base Tare. The texture was mild and the taste was less in oily and juicy.

 

The Dojou Nabe (loach pot) is one of the most traditional fast food in Tokyo since Edo Era. The taste or texture and the hobbit eating loach were very rare for also Japanese.
