Ginza, Japan – Day 1(d)

Ginza @7pm
730pm on the Ginza Streets.

Kani dukuro
Finally made my way to Kani Doraku (かに道楽). Part of a chain originating in Osaka 20 years ago, this is the main shop in Ginza area with a smattering of locations all around Tokyo. If you have been to a crab restaurant in Hokkaido then you can consider giving this a miss as I personally felt the crab tasted way better in Hokkaido. But if you haven’t been to Hokkaido and don’t plan to go there for awhile, then you are going to have a great crab meal. Prices here ain’t cheap but definitely affordable for two if you share 1 set meal which in my opinion is way too much food for 2.

Crab Miso
1st up would be the Crab Miso (actually crab roe) I was surprised that the roe was gray in color.

chilled crab legs
Next up would be the cold crab legs of 3 types of crabs.

Crab sashimi
Next up would be crab sashimi for 1 type of crab from its different body parts. Apparently there is a more fatty vs a less fatty body parts.

Lemon sherbet
Much as I hope there was some dessert with something crab inside but no, it is just a lemon sherbet.

please clean your hands
In Singapore, you wash your hands in a bowl of tea with lemon. In Japan, they serve you cold towel with a slice of lemon.
