Had me some yummy fish and chips yesterday after the swim. Yes, fish and chips in Japan. And they were pretty good. After yesterday’s ows race, I thought I’d walk all the way back to Zushi station (about 5-6km). Enroute, I would stop at the Gazebo. It’s a small fish and chip eatery that I’ve seen on the bus on the way to Hayama. I keep telling myself to stop there. I walked about 3km to get there so was well due for lunch having already just swum 4.5km as well. It’s along the main road between Zushi and Hayama so you can’t miss it.
I haven’t had fish and chips in ages. It’s an Aussie thing. A shame they don’t do potato scallops here. Hmmm, have a real hankering for potato scallops right now. Ordered me some fish and chips and a beer. They have quite the decent alcoholic beverage selection ranging from beers, wine, and sparkling wine. They even had VB!
The fish and chips were yummy. Good clean fish and the chips were perfect. Even served with tomato sauce and vinegar for the chips! The homemade tartare sauce was really delicious too. Just like being back in Oz.
Was a bit of a glutton and also ordered a side of popcorn shrimp. Popcorn shrimp is my kryptonite.
This place is cool and casual. The owners are a Japanese couple. The guy had lived in Australia (Gold Coast) for a bit, so was happy to learn that I was from Australia. His wife waits on the tables, and he operates the fryer. There’s an older guy as well who helps in the kitchen. It’s all cooked right behind the counter.
A real shame I was too full to fit in ice cream:
Gazebo at Hayama. About a 2km walk from Zushi station, or take bus No. 12 from Zushi station (heading for Hayama). Alight at Shoujouji (Shoujou temple) bus stop and then walk about 50m ahead. It’s on your left hand side along that road.
