The restaurant located on the approach to Miyajima, the most famous sightseeing spot in Hiroshima Prefecture, Tachibana offers oysters, one of the specialties in Miyajima. The most popular way to cook oysters here in Miyajima is to grill, but Tachibana’s recommendation is Butter-yaki (Grilled in butter) (1,300 yen). You can eat as many as 10 fresh oysters for much cheaper price than Yaki-gaki (Grilled oysters). They also offer Kakihurai-Teishoku (Deep-fried oysters set) with fresh fried crispy deep-fried oysters as well as some dishes using conger-eels which is another specialty of Miyajima.

Try Miyajima Specialties More Casually

Butter-yaki, Fresh Oysters Grilled on an Iron Plate
To eat oysters to your heart’s content, Butter-yaki is the one you should order. It has as many as about 10 oysters. The oysters grilled in butter on an iron plate have a really fresh texture and tasty flavor without any odor or bitter taste. The rich smell of butter is appetizing too.
Kakihurai Teishoku, Set Menu of Crispy and Juicy Deep-Fried Oysters
Another recommended way to cook oysters is to deep-fry. If you want to fully enjoy deep-fried oysters with crispy breading using fine breadcrumbs, order Kakihurai Teishoku. Once you bite it, juicy oyster comes out of the crispy breading. This is the great dish that even beats Butter-yaki.
