You'll find exceptionally good regional cuisine from Shimane Prefecture and very reasonable prices at this old-fashioned izakaya. The menu showcases fish and seafood flown in from the region as well as local-style dishes prepared from heirloom breeds of pork and chicken. There's also a good selection of Shimane craft sake, with a friendly staff who are happy to advise you on your selection.

The sake list features twelve brands from small craft breweries, most priced in the Y800 per glass range. More adventurous drinkers may wish to try the Shimane-ken wine - red and white are each Y630 per glass. The restaurant is affiliated with the Shimane-ken Prefectural antenna shop next door, which helps explain the abundance of freshly imported ingredients and the very reasonable prices.

Budget around Y3500-4500 per person for ample food and drink; party plans are also available. Mondo also has a newer and much larger branch, about three minutes south of here in Nihonbashi.
