Grilled Black Cod Teriyaki Set (Gindara Teriyaki Set) ($18.80)
Quite like the sauce that came with the fish. Their cod fish is definitely soft, and worth a try. Although not a cheap set, but it's quite expected since cod fish tends to be really expensive.

$17.90

Not as flavourful as the mero saikyo, but still good!

UPDATE OMG THEYRE NOT KIDDING, IT'S REALLY PATAGONIAN TOOTHFISH. At first I tot their translation is wrong due to the price. Patagonian toothfish at 17bucks is an absolute steal!!!! It sells for 60+ a plate at upscale restaurants. Given the texture though I'm not surprised, ridiculously fatty. MUST TRY!!!!!!!! This translation is definitely accurate, I checked w my Japanese teacher

GOOGLE SAYS GROUPER, but
the stall translate as toothfish, which is probably wrong?? It's definitely not silver cod tho, that is gindara

The first mouthful was absolutely life changing. If there's a fish equivalent of A5 wagyu, this is it. It melts in your mouth, quite literally. So incredibly fatty and cloud-like, but the oil does get jelat after a while. The sweetness of the saikyoyaki pairs q well with the fish, though after a few bites there's a bit of bitter aftertaste, which combined with the fattiness of the fish, makes it jelak. Get this to share, and you'll be very, very happy. I didn't queue for this but I imagine it would be worth the 20-30mins queue. Must try!

Ooooooo the fish was so fatty and flaky. There's a slight crisp on the skin too. The only imperfection is the seasoning, it's only on the surface and on a single side, so when it's faced down, the oil washes away the salt and makes it bland. Protip: drizzle some of the well seasoned oil onto the fish in your bowl for an explosive mouthful

The other items in the set were all above average. Now I understand the insanely long queue(starts forming at 5pm for dinner!!!)

I would say it's a must try, I didn't have a lot of grilled fish but this one is unique(it's v different from the keisuke one which is abit more what you expect). Idk what they do to the fish here but it's so soft and lacks any fishiness

I went at 4pm to avoid the crowd

One of fuss free dining option in town, be sure to pop by Nakajima during off peak hours to avoid the queue! The cod fish was meaty and buttery, though I would prefer it to be more char grilled with a smoky taste and caramelization of the teriyaki saue. But at $14.50 with rice, salad, miso soup and hot green tea, I'm not complaining!

Leave some rice after finishing the fish - just to mop up that light, aromatic, smoky fish oil left on the plate. It's that good.

Haven’t had my favourite Mero Saikyo Set (Cod Fish) in a long time due to the long queues during lunch and dinner times, so we decided to have dinner at 4pm. πŸ˜…
Still love the buttery cod that falls apart in your mouth. Comes with a side of salad, rice, cold tofu and miso soup.
Was a little greedy today so we had Salmon Sashimi as well. Super delicious. πŸ˜‹

One of my favourite place for a decent set meal! Choice of fish that comes with tofu, miso soup, rice and salad. Buri Shioyaki (Yellowtail) ($14.50) was a little heavier on the tastebuds and meaty; Kinme Dai Saikyo Yaki (Alfonsino) $14.50, was also really good! A little like the cod fish but flesh was even sweeter (perhaps also because of the saikyo miso) and slightly more bite to it. Wished the portion was bigger though. Skin was so crispy but a little charred. If I had to choose only one, I might prefer this to my all-time favourite fish, gindara teriyaki (Cod fish) $14.50. Fish here are really fresh and well-marinated without overpowering.
