The Tamaya is on the river of Ginoza village. It is a place we should drive by car, so I think that you should check the location in advance with Google Map. After entering the side road from the national highway No.329 line for a while, you will see the shrimp Ginosa farm.
The interior is like this. The river of Ginoza village is flowing in front of restaurant, it is quiet and calm atmosphere.
This is the menu of the Tamaya. Because I came all the way, I would like to eat fresh shrimp dishes. There, “Big Tendon" which used the fresh shrimp lived there, ordered fresh shrimp of salted grilled, sashimi, tempura and fried shrimp. I am looking forward to a fresh shrimp dish.
Brought me the living shrimp used for the dish ordered to the seat and showed it. It jumped in front of me, it was a very fresh and healthy shrimp. I was looking forward to seeing what kind of dishes it will be.
First of all, shrimp sashimi. The shrimp living until a while ago came to me as raw sashimi. I was surprised at its freshness when eating a bite. Very resilient and fresh sashimi. Its sashimi elasticity and ordinary shrimp are completely different. This was amazing.
Then grilled shrimp with salt. I ate baked live shrimp. Since it seems to be the most delicious as it is half baked, I ate it without too much grill. It was still alive so you can eat it from the head to the tail. It seemed to be a little bit cruel as it is baked alive, but still it’s delicious when you eat it! If you eat it with a little salt you will feel the fresh taste of the sea.
And this is fried and tempura of shrimp. Of course it was delicious without complaint.
Next, “Big Tendon" using 3 fresh, large shrimps living until a while ago. It’s a fresh shrimp fly so we can eat from head to tail. Quite a lot of volume. I was happy that I could put my favorite amount by myself of a bowl of rice bowls myself. Of course the prawns and vegetables were fresh, so the taste was delicious without complaint.
And set meals of fried shrimp for my child. It was a set meal with plenty of fried shrimp with 5 prawns. Shrimp was fresh, so It was tight and tasty shrimp fried.
