Izakaya in Uwajima

This izakaya has been serving up local food for over 70 years. If you request kyōdo ryōri (郷土料理) – meaning 'local cuisine' – the friendly owner should unlock his secrets. There's usually an English-speaker on hand to interpret the menu, but we highly recommend the tai-meishi course (¥2100), as this allows you to sample several interesting local dishes.
