I got a last-minute invitation to a year-end party and hurried over to Iwashigumi. It was packed. I was looking forward to joining my friends inside, but I felt a little sorry to jump past all the others waiting outside.

The minced sardines are super delicious. Sardines – just a common, everyday fish – but I have to say, I didn’t know the true taste of sardines at all until I had this menu item at Iwashigumi.
