Abe-Tottorido was the first to sell crab sushi in Japan in 1952. Nowadays, many similar lunchboxes are sold in the famous crab areas all over the country, and you're wondering which one is which. It has been 60 years in the making, and has made a name for itself as a leader in the San'in region.

This time, however, I tried the more expensive Sanin Tottorido Kani-Meshi from Abe-Tottorido. This is the only one that was sold at an event sale at a nearby shop.

When I opened the lid of the crab-shaped vessel, I found that the rice with snow crab minced pork and two crab claws were scattered on the inside. The rice underneath has a little color as if it were takikomi rice. Ooh~, the smell is so raw that it smells like a crab~. I warmed it up in the microwave and topped it with the attached Fukujin pickles. Then, I realized that the flavor of the crab was very strong. Fukujinzuke has a sweet taste.

The crab soboro is fine-grained, and I wonder if it's using a smaller crab (maybe female). And the biggest feature of this ekiben is, as you can see, the two crab claws. The crab's claws have a slit in them, which is surprisingly easy to eat.

Well, to put it better, the natural flavor of the crab. On the downside, I wish there was more acidity and seasoning. Well, I guess that's why they have Fukujinzuke. Also, because the crab is natural, the quality of the crab at the time may be different.
