This long-established izakaya mini-chain serves excellent Kyushu cuisine and a good assortment of sake and shochu from the southern island. Especially recommended are the Kagoshima-style tonkotsu (pork and daikon stewed in shochu) and a well-balanced Nagasaki-style sara-udon with vegetables and meat served over crisp fried noodles.
Other local favorites are the mini-gyoza (twenty pork dumplings served in an iron pan), karashi renkon (lotus root stuffed with spicy mustard), satsuma-age (deep-fried fishcakes) and charcoal-grilled chicken. There are ample seasonal fish and vegetable dishes, and delicacies like horsemeat sashimi.
Budget around Y4,000-5,000 for dinner with drinks.
