And this is my favorite menu I order every time i visit there, Mozuku-su. Kinda sea weeds are in vinegar, so yummy.

And, you should try Awamori that is very traditional alcoholic of Okinawa. It's about 25 degrees, kinda Shochu, some smooth, some rich, just try!

In addition, Okinawa has very uniquer culture, history and their own language that I can't understand at all, hope you can feel Okinawa there:)

Name: Chanpuru~(ちゃんぷる〜)
Price : 5,000 JPY each depends on how much you drink:)



Thanks!

Yakitori - Nishidaya(西田屋)

I'm a bit tired coz I got drunk 2- 3 nights in a low, but I went to a good one. Real good one.

Once you come to Japan, you'll see too many Yakitori (Grilled chicken skewers) restaurants. But, it's really hard to find a good one.

This is the one I recently found in Shimokitazawa. They have not only good Yakitori, but also other dishes. I guess they are basically good on making soup stock that is really really important in Japanese food.

They also have good sake, please try it as well:)

After all, do not forget to have Tamago kake gohan(Rise and low egg) and Chicken soup that are the best in this place:)

Tonkatsu (Fried pork cutlet) - Tonsui(とん水)

It's been long time since I posted last time, I'm still drinking and eating around Shimokitazawa of course:)

Today, I went to a very old tiny restaurant that gives you very traditional style home meal of Japan.

The wife of the chef told me that they are running this 43 years, said everything is changed since they started. But their dishes don't seem changed, you can have real Japanese home meals there.

They don't speak English at all and no English menu there, just order things below if you don't speak Japanese:)

1. Tonkatsu set (とんかつ定食) About 700 JPY
Deep fried pork cutlet, rice, Miso soup and pickles.

1. Aji-fry set (アジフライ定食)660JPY
Deep fried Horse mackerel cutlet, rice, Miso soup and pickles.

It's not gorgeous or luxury, but it's been loved by real local people for long time. Hope you like it!!

P.S. The beer bottle is big one(633ml), try that together:)
