Lonely Planet review

It's quiet on this backstreet, but energetic in Yokobachi's leafy courtyard and rangey suite of rooms around an open kitchen. There's no English menu, but standout small plates include spicy tebasaki (chicken wings), an inventive Caesar salad with sweet potato and lotus root chips, delicately fried mābō-nasu (eggplant in spicy meat sauce) and, if you dare, basashi (¥1200). There are about a dozen shōchū liquors to choose from.
