@Wanderlusting that’s what I did last week. Told him I would like to order a few otsumami okonomi and then nigiri set. A good way to go but that’s when I noticed Shirako being served and not on the board. Didn’t inquire if I can have it though
I am keen to try Ichimatsu but Omakase only allows a booking of minimum 2 ppl for the dates I will be in Osaka (eating solo because wife doesnt eat offals)
I will try to check again closer to my visit as sometimes odd numbers bookings will result in single seat available
in the mean time, has anyone been to Yakitori Matsuri and if it's any good ? I read it's a sister shop of Ichimatsu (solo booking is possible)
Now Haru only offers dinner course (about 10,000jpy) for non Japanese customers
If you visit, please give this new beef dish a try
Add this after Instagram in your URL.
I just found out the pork is called six white due to the six white markings on their four limbs, snout and tail.
On Friday, Keita is selling minced pork cutlet only, no Tonkatsu. Some people saw lots of available slots on Fri and booked without checking. So please re-check the booking form before you book in case Keita changes their schedule.
Thank you for reading my article. Hope it's helpful.
Hello, may I ask - I tried to get a reservation through a high-end hotel concierge about 3 months in advance, but they were unsuccessful when calling on the first of the month for the following month.
Is it ok to try to come in person to schedule myself with a cash deposit and over 10 days advance notice? To be clear, I don't have a reservation yet, but I will be in Tokyo for almost a month, so I can give a cash deposit for a reservation in advance if they'll let me.
If so, is there an advisable time to go? After lunch service, perhaps 14:15 or so? Thank you
Yes, Tomoei is one of my favorite eel restaurant. It’s soft and melt in your mouth, in contrary to Kaisei style. If u like Kanto style, this is the place to visit. U should try their grilled eel liver as well.
Oh and by the way, the son of the gentleman that you wrote about was in charge - there is probably a generational transition. I cannot compare between them but as I wrote above, I am coming back. Hopefully several times.
