The gourmet fish of your dreams

When on thinks of Wakayama Prefecture, the high grade fish known as longtooth grouper (or "Kue" in Japanese) is sure to come to mind. While people may think that it is pricey and out of their budget, the restaurant Marukiyo allows for guests to dine on all natural longtooth grouper for lunch at a reasonable price. The hotel staff recommends the "Kue-zukuri Teishoku" set lunch (¥2,100). Even the appearance of the fish cannot do justice to its delicious flavor. For those looking to try the longtooth grouper, definitely try this!(10 minutes by walk from the hotel)
