We went to the Japanese cafe “ Taiyaki& # 39; in St. Petersburg. I am telling you what they fed us there

While passing through St. Petersburg, we decided to try real Japanese cuisine. I don’t know, of course, how real it was, but the Taiyaki cafe , which came our way, somehow inspired confidence. And, to be honest, I really wanted to eat it.

Cafe “article-renderblock_block-points “> On the threshold we were met by a young man, as it turned out later, he himself was from Nizhny Novgorod. He said something to us in Japanese, apparently greeted us, and then helpfully offered to go into the hall, bowing in our direction.

Observing the rules of Japanese etiquette, we bowed in his direction in response and went into the cafe. From the outside, it probably looked terribly funny.

Since the clock was at the beginning of eleven, the hall was empty, and only a group of young people located in the very corner of the room, discussed something in an undertone, most likely a menu.

The menu, I tell you, was full of some unknown and exotic names. Not being gourmets in Japanese, and indeed in Asian cuisine, at first we even felt a little uneasy.

There was only one question in my head:

– How can you eat this at all?

From what we were somehow familiar with, it turned out to be peach tea, which we immediately ordered.

And melon-flavored lemonade.

Having got used to it a bit, ordered:

Syake Teriyaki: Delicate salmon fried in a thin layer of tempura under the signature teriyaki sauce on a pad of rice.

Onigiri in stock. Onigiri is a Japanese dish made from unleavened rice, molded into a triangle or ball. Typically, onigiri is filled with filling and wrapped in a sheet of dried nori seaweed.

While waiting for the order, we learned a few words in Japanese.

Not to look at all silly, instead of chopsticks they asked for traditional forks. So, you know, it is more convenient.
