Tsugi jiru (soup)

Also called "kara (chilly) jiru", it is a rare soup dish cooked only in the Meiho area of Gujo city. Large amounts of red pepper are carefully boiled with seaweed to extract a broth, to which locally made hard tofu cut into pieces is added, and it is then seasoned with soy sauce, sugar, etc. The dish captivates eaters with its deep broth flavor and sweet taste, which is followed by a spicy chili hotness.

"Unforgettable taste" created by Gujo pepper and local hard tofu
We prepare it by roasting local pepper called "Gujo Namban" to add flavor and cutting local, handmade hard tofu in pieces as small as possible. Carefully prepared broth from seaweed, dried mushroom, dried sardine, etc. and adding a little sugar to the dish makes it a "hot but irresistible taste".

A set meal of "sushi and tugi-jiru soup" of unique taste
This meal set has "Tsugi jiru," local specialty soup, to go with other dishes. We use the traditional "Meiho tofu". The first sip gives a sweet taste, which is followed by spiciness. It goes extremely well with sushi as well. Tsugi jiru is served upon reservation as it takes longer to prepare it.
