Squid Cartilage at ICHIZA

[imagebrowser id=711]

If you’ve ever had a hankerin’ for a little deep fried squid cartilage — and let’s face it who hasn’t? — then point to the poster on the wall at Ichiza (that doubles as a menu for the place) and get yourself a plateful of the little nippers.

They’re surprisingly good — sorta like popcorn shrimp, only a bit more toothsome — and go quite nicely with a glass of junmai daiginjo sake.

And while you’re at it, grab some oysters in ponzu sauce, some jalopy fried rice, slimy raw wasabi octopus, and a little albacore sashimi, for one of the better Japanese snack meals around town.

  1. Isn’t it “Junmai Daiginjo”? Or have I been looking like an ass at Japanese restaurants all these years by pronouncing it wrong?

  2. If you are interested in ordering this, its actually called squid soft bone fritter. $4.50 an order for the cost conscious. I asked for the squid cartilage and the waitress looked at me like I was crazy and then tried to offer me the calamari. But I recommend getting the baby octopus instead. Very tasty!
