Takowasa - Thick Sliced Octopus
seasoned with Wasabi root
Takowasa made from octopus that grows by eating abalone.
Once you try this Takowasa, you never be able to go back other Takowasa.
The octopus are are mainly caught at Minamisanriku Town, Miyagi Prefecture, and cut into huge sizes.
The seasoning is made with an natural elegant taste that makes the best use of each ingredient.
Highest-grade Octopus is used
Minamisanriku is famous for the octopus caught in Shizugawa Bay in Minamisanriku Town, one of the most delicious areas in Japan's fisheries kingdom.
- Why is Minamisanriku's octopus so delicious? -
The reason is the Sanriku Sea - one of the 3 major fishing grounds in the world, where the Oyashio and Kuroshio currents collide offshore.
The ecosystem in the rich nature nurtures sea jewels such as abalone and sea urchin, and the octopus feeds on these jewels.
This is the reason for its deliciousness.
They insist on processing fresh, high-grade octopus that can be enjoyed as sashimi.
Using sashimi grade octopus lets you enjoy the umami flavor to the fullest.
It's just so huge
They are confident in their ingredients, so they cut them into large pieces.
The larger the cut, the more clearly you can tell the quality of the ingredients when you eat it!
The specialness of using "Wasabi Root"
While most of Takowasa is made by mixing with wasabi powder or paste, it uses the "Wasabi root" which you don't really see even in Japan.
The use of wasabi root not only adds texture, but also the natural spiciness of wasabi, which is a perfect match for the large cut octopus.
It's well-received in Japan!
"Each piece is much larger than I expected, and a very satisfying one at that!
The wasabi was tangy and delicious!"
The large octopus is plump. Very soft and crunchy."
"I was surprised at the size of the octopus!
I could really taste the octopus without the insistence of wasabi like you would get at an izakaya. It is really delicious."
"I keep coming back for more!
The flavor is so well matched to the thick octopus that I can no longer eat the takowasa that I used to eat!"
They want you to taste the fresh and delicious seafood of Sanriku!
With this in mind, they minimize the use of seasonings and additives, and focus on seasoning that brings out the natural flavors of the ingredients.
