Finally back to Ikebukuro's most budget alcohol izakaya with my friend visiting from Niigata.
Back in the day the beers were 100 yen from Mon-Thurs but now its a fixed 180 yen.
No more paper menus.. everything is via this tablet and there are no English language options.
Automatic 300 yen appetizer aka table charge... a few pieces of macaroni with mayo.
Extra wasabi is free!
My favorite here... Avocado tuna salad.
Ok... here is the menu screen. The top button that says お飲み物 is the drink menu and the bottom お料理 is the food menu. Everything is pictured so just push the photo and select the # of items you want.
Friend ordered this sushi platter for about 1,300 yen. I am very fearful of fresh sushi here as this place is really not known for quality... just tried a few pieces of Maguro. If in search of sushi just goto a sushi spot like Sushi Zanmai.
Hi-Balls are 130 yen or you can get a double for 180 yen.
Overall the food is rather expensive so use this place to just drink then move onto another spot for nijikai... the building has multiple floors so in reservation recommended Tokyo its an easy in and out.
