Blaze A Foodie Trail

Indulge in a wonderful spread of Japanese food in Shimada City, the gateway of Oi River.

Yoshizen


Dengaku is a popular Japanese dish that involves foods, such as daikon and eggplant, coated with miso and grilled over an open fire. What makes this dish at Yoshizen special is their use of tofu and red miso – the red miso, whose rich flavours are further enhanced after grilling, is the perfect complement to the clean, delicate tofu. And what makes this dish even rarer is the combination of dengaku and nameshi – rice mixed with daikon leaves that have been pan-fried without oil and crushed into powder. The result is a scrumptious, healthful meal that fills your stomach, minus the guilt.

Noguchiya


When you enter this restaurant, it almost feels like you’re stepping into someone’s home – and you’re not wrong. Noguchiya is first and foremost a ryokan with a history of over 100 years, while the restaurant was introduced around 40 years ago. Specialising in fusion cuisine that’s a mix of Japanese, Chinese, and Western influences, the chef-owner prepares each dish using his own vegetable produce from his garden, from Manganji green chilli to spinach to tomatoes.
