Uosho, a fugu cuisine that has been in business for 112 years, acquired HALAL certificate from Japan Halal Foundation managed by Okachimachi mosque, making it the first HALAL-certified fugu restaurant in Japan. All fugu offered here are domestic wild fishes.
Fugu has poison, requiring chefs to have a special certificate allowing them to cook the fish. However, all chefs at Usho have proficient skills due to accumulation of long training and has never caused any incidence of poisoning. Fugu is often not eaten in overseas countries, but is well known in Japan as high-quality fish. Its delicate taste and fine texture fascinates many Japanese customers. Mirin (alcohol) is used for seasoning in many cases, but Uosho made dishes that do not include any mirin in acquiring the HALAL certificate.
There are only two HALAL menus (requires reservation)
■Fugu nabe (hotpot) 5000 yen
■Tempura set 2200 yen
