And so once I again I find myself with 2 heavy drinkers... both presidents of their own home reform/construction companies. The only way to control the budget is to go for a all you can drink dinner course and of course... Groupon to the rescue.
My favorite was the Kimchee
I can only say the food served here was very basic... nothing fancy or expensive.
Our Korean student waitress is in Japan for 6 months to study... Japanese was very good and friendly.
Closed with this Korean stew with ramen noodles and tofu inside.
Food was average, the interior was really nice and the service spot on great! If you can score a deal I'd venture into this place but otherwise the flavor of what we ordered other than the yummy kimchee was just ok.
There is a mini Golden-Gai / Shinjuku Yokocho on the same block so if you like tiny cozy Japanese restaurants its worth exploring.
