Upon entering the restaurant, I knew we made the right choice! Almost everyone dining there are locals! There was an English menu but we know the authentic items are in the Japanese menu. Thus, we asked our waiter to recommend the popular menu items to us from their Japanese menu. Some friendly neighbors even started chatting with us and even gave us some recommendation on what to order!
I have no idea what most of the dishes we ordered in the end are called but everything was delicious! We later saw our neighbors having a grilled fish in sauce and wished we had known about it earlier. Well, there is always next time!
|Beer is a universal language :)|
|We have no idea what this was but wanted to try it so bad when we spotted it at our neighbor's table|
It was delicious!
This one was much tastier than I expected
|Grilled eggplant with white miso|
I love eggplant! The pickled eggplant was good but this was what I was hoping for.
The white miso is sweet and very tasty!
|Again, I was hoping for fried chicken but this is tasty too.|
The best part was seeing my friends trying to tell our waiter they want "grilled chicken wings" by acting a charade!
|Miso marinated grilled fish|
This was super yummy too!
At first, I thought the garnish is a cherry tomato but it turns out it was a kumquat.
It's not until I returned when I found out this restaurant scored pretty high in Tabelog (3.57/5)! It's also one of Kin Kame (金亀) direct sales stores. We should have ordered the sake!
I love discovering places that are not on guide books because these are the kind of places that always give me surprises! Hopefully, I will discover more "best kept secrets" in my future travels.
