Ajiman (味満ん), Tokyo

Ajiman is a fugu (blowfish) specialist restaurant located in Roppongi and it’s only opened for half a year during the fugu season.

I was never a fan for fugu meat (I liked fugu shirako nevertheless). Perhaps after my very mediocre experience in Yamadaya, I never had the crave to try any fugu place. I would say Ajiman changed my impression on fugu.

To me the taste of fugu is very delicate, it often has a slightly stronger taste when its cooked. When it’s raw, its more about the texture. I really liked how Ajiman serves the raw fugu with two sauces (ankimo sauce and ponzu). I really liked the ankimo sauce with fugu.It’s like a flavor bomb because of the sauce.

The fugu shirako was another highlight. It was very creamy, almost like a pudding, wrapped with a thick outer layer.

It’s definitely a shop that I would like to revisit again!
