Izakaya in Ebisu, Meguro & Around

This mellow little izakaya (Japanese pub-eatery) specialises in simple pleasures: fish and sake (there’s an English sign out front that says just that). The friendly chefs speak some English and can help you decide what to have grilled, steamed, simmered or fried; if you can't decide, the ¥2500 set menu is great value. The entrance is up the wooden stairs.
