Shippoku style menu

円卓

“Try out o-hire!”
Nagasaki style Shippoku cooking starts with this greeting which means, “enjoy the fin of the fish too” by the Okattsama (local dialect for “house madam”).
“O-hire” is a osuimono dish (clear broth with fish) containing slices of sea bream.
The term means that a whole bream (including the fin!) was used for each guest, alluding to the host’s deep commitment to hospitality.

The roots of Shippoku style cooking hark back to the the period in Japanese history during which the country was shut off from the outside (sakoku-jidai: period of national isolation. Around 1633 to 1853) and the style of cooking was brought thru Nagasaki which was the only Japanese port open to foreign vessels at the time. Nagasaki Shippoku style cooking came into fashion as a unique local specialty barrowing elements from Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and Portuguese cooking.

Shippoku style cooking is typically a family dining experience and best enjoyed with all seated as equals around a common table. Other than the “O-hire” greeting at the beginning, there are no other rules about dish sequence or eating styles, and guests should serve themselves as they please from dishes arranged around the table.

We hope you try at least once Nagasaki Shippoku style cooking at Sakamotoya, traditionally cared for since the inception of the Meiji period.
