Izakaya

The complimentary starter, here boiled horse radish, and an egg from a small bird.
In Japan there is a type of restaurant or bar called "izakaya". They serve (usually) cheap Japanese food and very cheap alcohol. My colleages like cheap things, so last time we went out to eat and drink, we went to an izakaya. You get 90 minutes of unlimited drinks for 800 yen (8 Euro), which is cheap. But then again, you get only cheap beer or cheap alcohol.


This place is known for good "grilled pork on a stick", which we had.

We also had bacon wrapped mochi (sticky rice thingies).

The list on the wall said that this shops most ordered dish was fried shrimp with some form of mayo sauce.
The food was nice, and fairly cheap. We had lots of different food, but here are some of the highlights.
