Checked out one of my friends favorite restaurants near Aoyama University.
A mix of traditional Okinawan dishes and Chinese dishes.
Of course I always get the Okinawan Rafute pork ribs... super tender and well seasoned.
Chinese mabo tofu with a very distinct spice.
Goya Champuru... Goya slices that were tender and not bitter plus spam!
Walls lined with wines and prices written on them.
Asked the owner to suggest a bottle that would match our dinner and out came this huge bottle with a what looked like a beer cap. Very bubbly sweet white wine.
I am so not a wine guy... and normally just grab the bottle anywhere to pour.
Rayu chili oil for the mabo tofu.
It was a full house on a Friday and reservations is a must. If you walk in you might get lucky to get a spot at the standing counter and if a table opens up they will sit you.
