Friday night dinner in Nishi Azabu...
Arrived exactly at 6pm but they finally opened up around 6:15pm...
Peek inside the 1F with counter seating and one table.
I always order the Motsu-Nikomi... very flavorful soup.
This restaurant specializes in Oden...
... and Yakitori. Yakitori will take some time to come out but definitely worth the wait. The waitress will ask you if you prefer Ta-leh (sauce) or Shio (salt) seasoning on the yakitori.
Normally 600 yen but for 6-8pm Happy Hour the drinks are 350yen.
Liver and Tsukune.
Oden... hmm... oden... very simple if taste. Can't go wrong.
The Tebasaki was gooooood.
I saw someone ordering this massive Kurokiri-Shima shochu and I just had to have one... it was VERY strong... oh my! If on a budget go with this as the waitress puts ALOT of shochu in the glass.
I didnt think we ordered that much but hmm....must have been the beers.
1F counter seating was rather quiet... might be nice as there were many smokers on 2F.
This is a great place to hang out with a small group of friends... the older lady waitress was very responsive and the drinks came out quickly.
