Open 11am-11pm. Closed some Tuesdays.
Sun: Open Sundays

At first glance this looks like your typical chain izakaya, but the quirky menu offers Kyoto-style dishes and a big tofu section as well as Asian dishes and the mysterious "beer fondue nabemono." Drinks include premium sake from Kyoto breweries as well as Spanish and Australian wines. Non-smokers will appreciate the smoke-free section.
