If you’ve been to Japan, you have probably seen the sign for this restaurant. They are located all over Japan and we definitely had to give this place a try while we were there! Kani Doraku is definitely not a cheap restaurant but I believe it’s worth every cent. And worth every cent from Linda. We came here for her birthday and she treated! Thank you so much, it was such a memorable and delicious meal.
You can’t miss this business sign!
Check out their chopstick holder, it’s the details that count!
Their own chopsticks? It’s on now. And it includes a tool to help take the crab meat out! Genius.
Gotta try some hot sake…I’m not an alcohol girl. Hahaha. There are so many great pictures coming, so get ready (over 20)!
Steamed crab and raw crab
Upclose of the cooked crab…
Raw crab. Look at that beautiful translucent meat. Wait that is raw right? Correct me if I’m wrong.
MY FAVORITE. Crab miso…it’s basically a paste of the crab brains. That’s my absolute favorite part of a crab! I think they were selling bottles of this too. I wish I had bought it! This gives me a good reason to go back to Japan. Yes, for crab brains.
Ahh…creamy crab doria. So good!
Crab nabe! Isn’t that an awesome nabe “pot”? They have that here at Ichiriki, you just have to get the more expensive hot pot package.
Ingredients for the nabe. Do you see what I see??
Yes! A carrot carved into a crab! Details!
I tried to arrange it nicely in the pot…lol
I just have to show you everything we got, including the tsukemono…haha!
Sushi. I was a bit surprised by this crab in mayo roll – I guess I always thought rolls like these were more of an American invention.
Crab miso soup
As you can see, this meal was abundant and delicious. Even though this restaurant was very commercial – I liked that they had a call button so we could call for service as we needed. If you ever go out to Japan – I highly recommend trying Kani Doraku!
