takayama SAKANA

Fine dining of selected seasonal ingredients and the highest quality of Hida beef can be enjoyed in a peaceful location.

Sakana Restaurant in Takayama serves seasonal cuisine. Most of dishes are made from local products such as highly acclaimed Hida-Beef, also we go into the mountains by ourselves to get wild ingredients. In this diary, I'd like to make some notes of seasonal food and scenes of Hida area.

Sakana original hot green pepper paste


'Kara-kara namban' is the name of our original hot green pepper paste (registered trade mark). The main ingredient is 'Ajime-kosho (ajime-pepper)' which is special chili pepper of Hida.


Ajime kosho is long thin shape chili and has sharp hotness and somehow sweetness at the same time.


Chop them finely, but not too fine, and mix them with plenty of garlic and our original seasoning.


Stir well in a cauldron until it's cooked.


Hot chili lovers will love it to add special kick on pizza, rice noodles. It's very popular original product of SAKANA which is sold online (only within Japan) or at SAKANA.
