長崎に来たらぜひ:長崎魚市内「水産食堂」 A Place I Want You to Visit in Nagasaki: ‘Suisan Syokudo’ in the grounds of the Nagasaki fish market


 You can enjoy Nagasaki’s seafood in all its freshness there. You can tell from its business hours, from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., that this restaurant’s regular customers are the fish market workers, fishermen, and the people concerned, but it is also open to the public. It is closed on Sunday and the day when the fish market is closed. 




 The day I went there, I greedily had the extra-large portion of Kaisen Don (a bowl of rice topped with many kinds of sashimi). In addition to the great amount of sashimi, it is served with a fried horse mackerel, salad, and miso soup, even so it only costs 1,400 yen. It’s good value for the price. The ingredients are sea bream, young yellowtail, horse mackerel, bonito, silver anchovy, octopus, squid, shrimp, salmon, salmon roe, and Japanese-style omelet. The amount of rice is 1.5 times larger than the normal portion. You dissolve wasabi in soy sauce in a small plate first, then you pour it over the sashimi. You may wonder which sashimi you should choose to start with. How about starting with the horse mackerel? It’s so good. You may want a mouthful of rice soon. You can’t stop eating all the sashimi one after another. Next, you can give the fried horse mackerel a try, too. It is so crispy and the texture of the thick piece of it is so good. With regard to the miso soup, you can tell a good stock has been used. You won’t get enough of it to the last morsel.


 If you are worried that you can’t eat that amount of sashimi, it would be more than enough to have a normal portion of Kaisen Don (980 yen). Even if there is someone who doesn’t like seafood so much in your party, there’s nothing to worry about because they serve several kinds of set meals such as hamburg steak, fried chicken, and so on, plus they also serve udon and even rice with curry sauce.       


 The Nagasaki fish market was originally located close to the center of Nagasaki city a long time ago, but it moved to Kyodomari, a town in the northern area of Nagasaki, in 1989. Suisan Syokudo also moved there with the fish market at the time. It takes more than thirty minutes by car to go there from the Nagasaki station, even so it is the place where you can enjoy Nagasaki’s seafood at a low price. It is worth visiting if you like seafood. I hope tourists give consideration to this restaurant as an option.
