Usuki Fugu Yamadaya Nishiazabu / Marunouchi
臼杵ふぐ山田屋 西麻布店 / 丸の内店

Tokyo Nabe Cuisine

Long-established Restaurant Listed in the Michelin Guide as 2 Stars specializing in serving fugu (pufferfish)

“Usuki” is the name of an area in Oita Prefecture in Japan where the sea currents are extremely strong, so this place is known for its treasure trove of fresh fatty and firm fish. Usuki’s pufferfish is a name that stands out even among the most famous brands, which is characterized by its freshness and thickness. As it is exceptionally fresh it requires precision to cut, as it very difficult to slice thinly. Usuki Fugu Yamadaya has the prestigious recognition of being listed in the Michelin Guide as 2 Stars; extremely rare for a restaurant serving pufferfish. Though the first location started in Oita prefecture, guests can enjoy the same luxurious texture, taste and volume of Usuki’s pufferfish at the Nishiazabu location.
Though natural Torafugu contains a poison and some people may be afraid of this fact, in Japan there are now very strict standards that require a special license to prepare pufferfish so guests can have peace of mind knowing it is perfectly safe to eat, with no worry of poison. From December to March grilled milt from the puffer fish is also served, and is peak season for pufferfish. Many customers come every year during this season, making reservations are quite difficult, however many people may not be aware that actually pufferfish in the summer is also quite delicious.
At Usuki Fugu Yamadaya, natural pufferfish can actually be eaten throughout the year. In May and June, flouder is also served. The top-quality pufferfish and flounder at Usuki Fugu Yamadaya, is a definite must-try for those that either love pufferfish, or those that would like to try this delicacy.
