おでん処 こなから@御茶ノ水

Oden dinner! Very popular place, all counter seats and must reserve. You can only stay for 2 hours. Opens at 6pm which is too early for us so we booked for the second round from 8:30pm. 2 hours is quite enough for oden as the food comes quickly, though some of the stuff have run out already when we got there.

Oyster oden.
Hanpen(bottom left), sardine tsumire(bottom right), satsuma taro and chestnut(top right), sato taro and ebi taro(top left). All are tasty! Especially love the oyster and the sweet chestnut one.

Clockwise from 12 o'clock: Daikon(radish), Mochi-kinchaku(Rice cake wrapped in tofu pouch. Standard oden but very nice!), pumpkin(with raisins in it!!!!), shiitake mushroom shinjo(also fish cake but has more fine and smooth texture), Kyo-gamo(Kyoto-style tofu patties with bits of vegetable).
Red bean cake, which is not sweet but savoury!! Very nice~.

ごまだれ ごますり 出世 うどん。
Sesame udon. You ground the sesame yourself, add it into the sweet miso sauce, mix it and pour it over the udon.
Grilled rice ball, slight salty, strong yukari(red shiso) taste.

Except the udon which is 1000yen, everything else is 300yen a piece. Maybe a little upscale for an oden place, but the atmosphere is casual and the madam is friendly and patient in explaining the menu. Half of the stuff are standard oden, but many are original in this shop. Not in pictures but fish roll with burdock root(こぼう天) is very good too.

Menu 1, 2. There is one more non-oden menu which I didn't take picture of.

Probably. After all, oden comes quick, and fills up your stomach quick too. This place is very popular and we booked like weeks in advance. Oden is a winter thing, so it is understandable that they want to get as many customers as they can before the weather gets hot.

I never knew there're so many diff. oden, oyster one sounds good! I don't get that time limit thing, they prevent people will treat it as izakaya and keep on talking and staying all night..or...?
