    Fukui Pref. Fukuishi Junka 1-7-4
    A famous restaurant visited by fans from far and wide and said to be the originator of sauce katsu-don, a local Fukui Prefecture specialty consisting of breaded pork cutlet soaked in Worcester sauce and served on a bowl of rice. It’s said sauce katsu-don was invented when the owner returned from a trip to Germany and, seeking to popularize the Worcester sauce he encountered there in Japan, created the dish to serve at a food fair in 1913. The shop’s pork cutlets, breaded with small panko bread crumbs, deep fried, and drenched in Worcester sauce, are so juicy and tender they can be cut with chopsticks. Served with several cutlets piled high on a bowl of rice, the shop’s sauce katsu-don is also visually impressive. The nearest station is Fukui Station.

    Came here for my kids as they are fan of fried stuff. In the end, we all enjoyed it. Ordered the set that comes with huge piece of prawn, minced pork and port cutlet. They are lightly coated, crispy...

    坂井市にある「田島」に訪問しました。 三連休の最終日の14時前に訪問しましたが、数グループが待っている状態でした。 食事は、ボリュームのある海鮮丼です。少し値段はしますが、この値段で、おのボリューム、味であれば、文句のつけようがありません。

    This restaurant keeps high-quality eels in underground water from Mt. Kirara, located behind the restaurant, and takes pride in cooking them Kansai-style (on charcoal without steaming). Original hone sembei (crackers made from eel bones) and eel rice bowls are popular as take-home gifts. Reservations are required for dinner (17:00-19:30).

    美味しいうなぎをいただきました。とってもふっくらしています。骨煎餅も進みます。お店も小綺麗で好感が持てます。空いていたのはそもそもこの辺に人がいないからかもしれません。三方五湖に訪れた際はおすすめです。

    Fukui Pref. Nyugunechizenchou Kokonogi 3-81
    This restaurant in a fishing port in Port in Kokonogi, Echizen-cho has a panoramic view of the port and you can enjoy fresh Echizen seafood throughout the year as well as Echizen crab dishes in the winter. During the Echizen crab season, you can eat crab selected by the owner from his own catch. Fishing restrictions are lifted from 6th November to 20th March and visitors can enjoy crab up to the end of April. The menu also includes rare seafood that is not sold commercially.

    空腹ではなかったので、ランチ時ではあったがご飯はやめて、車海老フライと刺身盛り合わせをチョイス。 エビフライは美味だったが、刺身は普通。というか、期待値以下。大阪でも食えるレベル。 見ると6万円の蟹とか謡ってる割に、この時代でカード利用不可とか、観光客を舐めているとしか思えない。 一見で入ったが、この店は目立つだけで、探したらもっと良い店はあると思う。知らんけど。

    Fukui Fukui-shi Kitayotsui 1-1-8
    A tonkatsu breaded pork cutlet restaurant situated along National Route 8 in Kitayotsui, Fukui City, Fukui Prefecture.

    A gift shop and restaurant where you can enjoy creative tofu dishes, Sachiya is situated on a small hill, offering you a wide view of nature and the mountains surrounding Eiheiji Temple while you enjoy your meal. They offer healthy meals, with morning-squeezed soy milk, freshly-made tofu, sesame tofu, and in-season vegetables. The restaurant’s tofu, sides, and stock are available for purchase at the shop.

    店内は新しく、綺麗です。 豆腐づくしの5000円のコースを頂きました。 豆腐を色々な形で楽しませてくれようとする気持ちは伝わるのですが、あともうちょっとで美味しくなるだろう、残念な結果に終わっているお品も…。 お子様プレートも頼みましたが、こども向けのはずなのにドレッシングがかなり生姜が効いて、見た目も地味な色合いで少し残念。 全体的に値段と内容のバランスが取れていないと感じました。
