You can eat the fish you caught on the spot.
In zauo, you can eat the fish you caught at the restaurant. It’s okay even if the fish is cut. A professional cook can make a gorgeous dish in the way you like.
You can choose not only sashimi and grilled fish but also fried chicken and boiled fish.
I also recommend the option menu (extra charge) such as sea bream chazuke or simmered bony parts.
The sashimi that has the most distinct taste of freshly caught fish is very popular.
The freshness of sashimi is very important, but the freshness of Zauo is as good as any restaurant.
I recommend this popular dish because you can enjoy the original taste of fish and crunchy texture. When you catch fish, please eat it as sashimi first.
The freshest fish has plenty of fat on it. Whether grilled with salt or boiled, it makes the best dish. The fish cooked with just the right amount of salt is the best combination with beer.
I recommend boiled fish for people who can’t cook fish slowly and carefully at home.
Fried fish is the most popular menu among children. Please eat the crispy fried fish while it is hot with the lemon which goes well with it. You can eat a whole deep-fried sea bream or flounder.
