Ark shell (Akagai)

If you order Ark shell (akagai), you will hear the pleasing sound of the shellfish striking the cutting board, which tightens the flesh. The shellfish is sliced to slowly open, as if a magnificent flower was blooming. Many ark shells used to be caught at Edomae, the bay of Tokyo before; the one from Kemigawa Chiba prefecture was highly valued. Sleek and vivid color of shell meat shows its freshness. Enjoy rich flavor of ocean and firm texture.
