This izakaya is opened by four chefs who all own their own restaurants in the same area. Though not them but someone else is cooking in this place. The front door looks like someone’s apartment! It was a dinner party and we had the 4000yen dinner course, plus endless additional orders from the a la carte menu cos we were all pigs. Buri and radish is complimentary appetizer.
Sashimi(Yari-ika, hirame, mejimaguro). Salt-pickled raw liver.
Female version dashi-maki tamago(Japanese rolled omelette), which tasted the same as the male version, only sweeter.
Celery pickled in honey and miso. (Pic shows only the messy leftover ^^;;)
Smoked chicken and mushroom salad.
Honmasu salmon Ishikari-nabe(miso based). Very fatty salmon very good!
Somen-coated fried Tachiuo(Scabbard fish).
Charcoal-grilled chicken: thigh with yuzu-kosho, Tsukune with sauce(comes with raw egg too), sasami-yaki(chicken breast) with wasabi and umejiso(sour plum and shiso).
白ばい貝の海女さん煮（a la carte）。
穴子と里芋の柚子あんかけ（a la carte）。
Anago and satoimo(taro) in Yuzu ankake(starchy) sauce.
洋風まるごとトマト煮おでん(a la carte)。
カキの天ぷら海苔あんかけ（a la carte）。
Western style whole tomato oden.
Oyster tempura in seaweed ankake sauce.
Pickles and rice. Comes with miso soup.
酒盗チャーハン(a la carte)。 本日のデザート：柚子大福、ガトーショコラ。
Fried rice with “shutou”(salted bonito guts). Dessert from the course: gateau chocolat and Yuzu Daifuku.
The food is generally good in a standard izakaya sort of way. A bit salty to keep you drinking. Maybe not a reliable reference since I went with a huge group but (a lot of) food+drink is about 8000yen.
