My image of posh Ginza with their incredibly high property prices gives me visions of 30,000 yen Omakase Sushi sets but they do have some very reasonably priced franchise restaurants. Aka-kara 5 Chome branch is located in the shadows of the mega shopping complex Ginza Six
Tonight we are a party of 8 and ordered 2 Akakara hotpots... you can select between 1 - 10 spicy levels.
There are two 90 minute nomihoudai (all you can drink) options. 1,500 yen or 1,800 yen that has a higher grade of whisky.
Counter seating at the entrance with private booths for 4 nearby.
The automatic otoshi... bean sprouts.
The nabe. It does contain motsu (pork falafel) that was absolutely impossible to bit into. Like chomping on a little rubber ball.
Gyoza had a nice garlic kick.. liked this.
Unfortunately this place didn`t have one long table for 8 so we took up 2 tables that were a bit apart.
Extra spicy soup.
Now time for the closing dish. Can either select ramen or flat udon type noodles to mix into the remaining nabe soup.
Overall it ran about 3,500 yen each but that`s not too bad for Ginza. The Akakara franchise can be found all around Tokyo and its cigarette free family friendly.
