Tai Meshi, a local food of Ehime Pref.

[日本語]

 

I went to "Kaisen Hokuto", a famous restaurant in Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture, Japan.

It serves "Tai Meshi"(rice with minced red sea bream), a local dish of Ehime Prefecture.

And it is the seashore region and we can eat dish seeing beautiful sea. 

 

"Tai Meshi" can be classified into two categories, one of category of "Tai Meshi" is based on Hojyo region and another category is based on Uwajima region.

This restaurant's "Tai Meshi Hime Zen" has both two types of "Tai Meshi".

 

This is "Hojyo Tai Meshi".

It is rice seasoned with kelp soup stocks and boiled with sea bream.

Boiled sea bream is tender and sweet. Rice seasoned with kelp soup stocks is delicious, too.

 

This is "Uwajima Tai Meshi".

It is raw sea bream on the top of rice with special sauce, mixed with egg.

Raw sea bream is chewy and sweet. Special sauce and egg suit rice and sea bream.

 

I took JR Yosan Line from Matsuyama City to Kaisen Hokuto.

Nearest Station is Koyodai Station, and it is five minutes walk to Kaisen Hokuto from Koyodai Station.

We can see beautiful sea from inside the train.

 

I took Iyotetsu Bus from Kaisen Hokuto to the center of Matsuyama City.

It is 30 minutes to Matsuyamashi Station from Kaisen Hokuto.

We can see beautiful sea from inside the bus.
