Both 大黑壽司 and 北川 are family-run sushi and tempura place nearby Aomori port. 大黑壽司 serves good quality Ubagai, Abalone and scallop sushi etc…… while the chef of 北川 prepares seafood tempura. I couldn’t say it was a very amazing dinner with really special items are served, however, it’s a bloody steal!! A cost of full sushi/tempura set dinner menu is in between 1,600 – 2,100 yen. Seems they don’t mind razor-thin profit making and no need to face the difficulties of high operation cost. That’s why their food quality is always keep in a high standard.
Last but not least, there is a stylish Japanese Italian restaurant named LINCE, quite unique gastronomic dining experience to have Italian cuisine infused with the freshness of Aomori seafood.
