Pomelo is one of the four ancient non-hybrid citrus fruits. It's sort of like grapefruit, except that it tastes good. Two thumbs up. Specifically, it lacks the lingering bitter aftertaste of grapefruit.

Last night I had himono robatayaki. Fish that's salted and sundried, then grilled over charcoal. The dried seabream on that page appears to be an example of this. We had one of the varieties of mackeral on the menu.

Adding ... and it was good. Much umami.
