Ibiza calls itself a
"fisherman's diner,"
and this unpreten-
tious neighborhood
spot offers a great
selection of fresh-
caught fish and
seafood. Simple
home-style recipes
rely on the high
quality of the in-
gredients rather
than showing off any
dazzling cooking
tricks.

On a recent visit we
enjoyed kisu (whit-
ing) fritters fla-
vored with ume and
shiso; big portions
of miso-simmered
ginmutsu (bluefish);
and first-rate
grilled salmon bel-
ly. The hone-sembei
(toasted mackerel
bones) were crunchy
and very tasty, and
the cold chunks of
cucumber in miso-
meat sauce provided
nice contrasts of
flavor, texture and
temperature.

If you're a fan of
craft sake you'll
probably find some-
thing to your liking
on the extensive
list; they also
stock various Chi-
nese liqueurs and
ten kinds of umeshu.
Budget around Y4000
with drinks. Note
that the menus and
service are in Japa-
nese only, and the
restaurant is quite
busy, so bring a
Japanese-speaking
friend if you're not
comfortable nego-
tiating the menu.
