Don’t let the grungy eccentric vibes mislead you- the fresh seafood and simple vegetable dishes are top quality. The nostalgic energy is an added plus to a fuss-free dinner.

This izakaya has become a trendy destination to an international crowd, but I’ve been a regular for over a decade now. It's comforting to know some things don't change.
