Indulge yourself with a big tray of fresh uni or ikura to accompany your favorite sake at this cozy little izakaya. If you're not in the mood for a whole box of uni (Y2980) there are delicate small dishes like uni with fresh yuba, and ikura with sour cream and olive oil. Chewy charcoal-grilled ray fins and crunchy, toasted eel bones also make excellent sake snacks.
The sake selection includes eleven limited-edition seasonal labels from small breweries as well as a dozen or so well-known craft sake available year-round. The comfortable interior features a wide counter as well as table seating, with dried fish skeletons adorning the walls and sixties jazz playing in the background. Budget around Y3000-4500 for food and drink at dinnertime.
