If you’re craving for a stronger and oily mouthfeel dark meat, bonito from kochi prefecture is good for you. The fishy taste is way too strong for us.

Botan shrimp is thick and firm to bite with a sweet tasting. Botan shrimp is the tastiest when it is served shortly after preparation. It’s so fresh that can you see the ebi tail is “dancing”.
