Anago is the specialty at this first-rate tempura shop, and the combination of quality and price attracts a full house at lunchtime, when the menu starts at just Y1155. (By contrast, dinner averages around Y6000.) Some highlights of a recent deluxe teishoku included nicely crisp green beans, very fresh-tasting kinoko mushrooms, and a huge helping of crunchy kakiage filled with plump shrimp.
The small dining room fills up quickly, so try to get here close to the 11:30 opening time if you're coming for lunch.
