If you're a cheese fan it's well worth dropping by this casual wine bar just to try their excellent four-cheese platter. The shop offers around a hundred wines by the bottle and twenty by the glass, including an ever-changing "kimagure" wine selection priced at just Y300 as well as much more deluxe options.

The tables and seats here are rather compact, so this is more of a spot to grab a quick drink and a snack rather than an evening meal. There's a broad-ranging food menu if you're hungry though, ranging from inexpensive snacks to more ambitious dishes like duck confit and grilled lamb chops.

Setagaya-ku, Kitazawa 2-9-3.
