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 English and can help you decide what to have grilled, steamed, simmered or fried; if you can't decide, the ¥2500 (plus tax) set menu is great value. The entrance is up the wooden stairs.
