Childhood friend Scott kept inviting me to check out Aonisai in Asagaya for about a year or so... well, I finally made it!
We sat at the tables near the open entrance... further back there is a private tatami space for about 4-5 people... the A/C was kickin in back there. Nice spot for a little gathering.
Menu was very reasonable... lots of appetizers that went well with beer.
Salad with slightly grilled beef...
Thick pieces of bread with Chili and Tomato topping.
Wine bottles were all 2,500yen.
Nachos with Chili Cheese dip.
Cheese Rice Corokke.
The owner of Aonisai... very friendly person... yeah, those shots were for our table. When you get Scott and Terry together (both Tequila lovers) then my nights end up in a blur... phew.
And so the shots arrived...
Kanpai... But tonights gathering was to welcome back Scott from a few months haitus from Tokyo. If you have some Aloha in ya then check out the Hawaii's Own Coffee Company that he founded.
I occasionally see items like this in the restroom but never to this extent... lots of attention to customer service and detail.
There is a nice bar counter if you wander in alone... 2nd floor has sofa seating with Jazzy music. I'd definitely recommend this spot for a few beers with friends.
