Ibuki!!! Breathing New Life Into Japanese Cuisine!!! 寿司屋~~~☆☆☆

11 Dec

Ibuki” is a very modern, unique and new Japanese sushi restaurant which opened in Maida Vale (London) and this is also a restaurant that one will definitely return to after having experienced the Ibuki experience. Ibuki is run by Mr. and Mrs. Hoshino who are a very lovely married couple and who are also very friendly and inviting.

「いぶき」はとっても現代的でユニークな日本の寿司屋だよ。メーダベール(ロンドン)ではオープンされたばかりです。いぶきの経験してからこのレストランにまた戻るに違いないです。いぶきは星野君夫婦に経営されてる。星野君夫婦はとっても素敵な夫婦で親切で温かい夫婦です。

Ibuki is originally a sushi restaurant; However, apart from the sushi – such as the “Maida Roll” and the “Vale Roll” sushi – there are other dishes that are available such as salads, tempura, teriyaki, miso soup and much more. Now that the winter season has descended upon us all, just for this bitter chilly winter period, guests can order a spicy nabe! Ibuki’s nabe is amazing! The nabe contains a wonderful flavoursome stock which is slightly spicy but not too spicy. It cooks together with various vegetables, fish and meat such as salmon, oysters, and chicken and sesame balls which are a combination that compliments each other. The taste of the broth eaten together with the vegetables, meat and fish are like the perfect marriage. Plus, the nabe is big enough to feed five or maybe even six people, therefore it is the perfect place for families, even couples and groups of friends to go to. Anyone and everyone can go there!

いぶきは元々寿司屋ですが、寿司以外には(例えば、メーダベールとベールロールという寿司)ほかのものも売っています。サラダとか天ぷらとか味噌汁とか。。。いっぱい売ってるわ。今は冬の盛りですから、寒さの厳しい冬ですから、限定版のスパイシーな鍋が食べられまーす。いぶきの鍋は素晴らしいです。鍋の中には鮭、オイスタ、鶏肉とコマのボールが入っています。入った全てのものは完璧なコンビネーションだったみたいです。煮汁を野菜、肉、魚と一緒に食べて完璧な結婚みたいだったな~と思いました。(笑)さらに、鍋はでかいから、5人~6人ぐらいの人が同じ鍋から食べられます。だから、いぶきが家族、カップル、友達とかにぴったりです。誰でも行けます!

When it comes to dessert, you are surely going to love Ibuki’s take on this Italian classic. This dessert is made in house by Mrs. Hoshino; and before it is even consumed, one will be entrapped by its stunning beauty. The dessert is a tiramisu but with a Japanese twist. Why? It’s Japanese-y because it contains Maccha (Green tea powder). Maccha is mixed into the cream mixture so that it adopts a very green complexion which looks lovely in contrast to the dark alcohol soaked cake like element in the dessert. There is a generous amount given in relation to both components and one will not be left thinking that there wasn’t enough given. Then we move onto taste. The taste is extraordinary and is just as lovely as the presentation. There is just enough alcohol present and it is not at all overpowering. It balances rather than invades the dessert. I was impressed by Mrs. Hoshino’s skills!

デザートと来たら、いぶきのティラミスが好きになってくるに違いないです。このデザートは星野さんの手作りのデザートで食べる前にデザートの見た目に耽ます。このデザートは日本っぽいティラミスです。何で日本っぽい?抹茶が入っていますから。抹茶をクリームに入れてクリームの色が緑っぽくなるまで混ぜます。緑っぽいクリームと黒っぽいスポンジケーキが綺麗な対照だと思います。クリームとケーキに関してはたっぷりした盛り付けですよ~~。それに、「充分に食べてないな~」などという考えが頭の中に宿りません。次は、味です。味は物凄く素晴らしいですよ。味は見た目と同じです。酒も入ってるんだが、入れすぎじゃない。十分です十分。酒はデザートに侵入しないし、酒も圧倒的ではないし。星野さんのスキルは私に感銘を与えました!

“Ibuki” is a fabulous Japanese restaurant and one which those who go there will want to return to.  There are a variety of dishes on offer as well as a variety of different drinks and desserts. Finally, there is a special spicy nabe that is only available for this winter season so why not go to “Ibuki!”. Just remember that if you want to eat this spicy nabe then you will need to order it before going to Ibuki! Reservation is necessary! Please remember! lol.

いぶきは素晴らしい日本のレストランです。そんなに素晴らしいですから、また戻ると思います。こっちではいろんなものを経験することが出来ますわ。鍋とか寿司とか、そしていろんな飲み物とデザートも!最後に、スペシャルでスパイシーな鍋も食べられますわ。でも、冬の限定版の鍋ですから、冬が終わる前にいぶくに行ってみたら??でも、もしこのスパイシーな鍋を食べたいなら、いぶくに行く前にスパイシーな鍋を予約して下さいね!予約が必要です。覚えといてね!(笑)

これがきつね蕎麦だぁぁぁ!!!美味しそうでしょう?これ美味しいよ!これ!友達は一度も日本料理を食べたことはないから、このレストランに友達を紹介してあげた!この所について記事をもう書いたけど、みさとの批評 – パート1 又行ったので、別の記事を書こうかなぁ。。。と思ってた!じゃぁ、これは私のレポートだよ!今回はきつね蕎麦を食べた!ずっと笑顔を見せて食べた!(笑)汁もよかったし、軽かったし、そしてね、塩辛くなかったと思ったわ!次は、蕎麦だ!蕎麦はさ、蕎麦の量が十分だったと思ったさ!大き過ぎも小さ過ぎもしなかった!感触も丁度よかった!トッピングは油揚げだった!基本的に、油揚げは豆腐だよ!これも美味しかったよ!頭の中で「甘~甘~!」って言ってばかりいたよ!「甘い」じゃなくて、「甘~!」だねぇ!(笑)美味し過ぎたのだ!きつね蕎麦の海洋で泳いでたみたいだ!(大笑)。因みに、きつねは英語でFoxだよ。神話によると、きつは油揚げが好きだから、我々はこの食べ物を「きつね蕎麦」と呼ぶよ!英語でFox Sobaだ!!!

This is Kitsune Soba!!! It looks delicious right?! Well, this is delicious! lol! My friend has never eaten Japanese cuisine before and so because of this,  I introduced my friend to this restaurant! I already wrote an article about this place, Misato Review (Part 1) but because I went again, I was thinking “I wonder if I should write another article???” So, here is my report! This time, I ate Kitsune Soba! I ate it while all the time, showing a smiling face! lol The broth was good, it was light and I thought it wasn’t salty! Next, the soba! You know, I thought the quantity of the soba was enough! It wasn’t too big, neither was it too small! The texture was just right! The topping was Aburaage! Basically, Aburaage is deep-fried tofu! This was also delicious! Inside of my head all I was saying was “This is tasty!!!” It was too delicious! It was like I was swimming in a Kitsune ramen ocean!!! LOL! By the way, Kitsune in English means “Fox”. According to the legend, because foxes like deep-fried tofu, we call this “Kitsune Soba” In English this is “Fox Soba“.

Location (位置) – Misato, 11 Wardour Street, London

私は日本を愛してるのだから、こんなに深い恋は私に日本料理を作らせてくれた!(笑)日本料理でもし正直に言ったら、日本料理で一番美味しいと思う ものは選べない!全て大好きだよ!しかし、寿司食べてばかりいるので、「寿司作ろうとしようかなぁ。。。」って思ってた!ですから、寿司作ろうとした!巻 き寿司作ろうとした!(笑)この写真は私が作った巻き寿司だ!日本人じゃない友達に「寿司作るのは超ムズいだろう?」って聴かれたけどさ、「これを作るの はそんなにムズくない」と私が思ってた!しかしね、ちょっと難しかったのは寿司転がしてたと思うわぁ!でも、それ以外、本当にそんなに難しくなかった!全然OK だった!次は、友達に「中には何が入ってたの?」って聴かれた。中にはね、豆腐とか、人参とか、胡瓜とか、ヘルシーなもの入ってたよ。そしてね、あの白く 丸いボウルには生姜が入ってた。全体として、巻き寿司作るのは成功だった!一回しか作ったことはないので、最終製品が気に入った!一人悦に入った!!(大 笑) 然も、あっと言う間に家族が全て食べてくれたのだ!(笑)次はどうかなぁ。。。

Due to the fact that I love Japan, this kind of deep love has made me cook Japanese cuisine! lol Amongst Japanese cuisine, if I speak honestly, I cannot choose a thing which I think is the most delicious! I LOVE EVERYTHING!!! lol However, because I’m always eating sushi, I thought “I wonder if I should attempt to make sushi???” Therefore I attempted to make sushi! I attempted to make Makizushi!!! This photo is the Makizushi which I made! You know, I have been asked by my non-Japanese friend “Making sushi is super difficult right?” but I thought “Making this isn’t that difficult!” However, I think it was rolling the sushi that was a little bit difficult! Apart from that, it was completely OK! lol Next, I had been asked by my friend “What did you put inside your sushi?” Well, I put tofu, carrots, cucumber and healthy things! 🙂 I also put ginger in that white, round bowl! Overall, It was a success making Makizushi!!! I have only made sushi once and so because of that I was pleased with the finished product! I was pleased with myself! LOL!!! Plus, my family ate everything in the blink of an eye!!! Haha!!! I wonder what’s next…
