One of the highlights at JU95 that you should not miss is the Grilled Baby Squid Donabe, served in a Japanese claypot. As we started tossing, I could already smell the seafood flavours coming through from the grilled baby squid and umami ikura. The umami taste was further accentuated by the shimeji mushroom, and of course when the ikura starts popping in your mouth. The baby squid was nicely grilled with a hint of char. What was unique was the Seaweed Schmaltz , consisting rendered chicken fat, that boosted the overall taste and aroma.
