Recognize anyone? This place was a hub for coincidental encounters on a recent evening.
On paper, the most alluring choice here is the buta kakuni ramen (ramen with stewed pork). A hearty bowl of Maggi Mee-like noodles in warm, subtly salty white broth. The pork was reasonably tender, but it was marred by a somewhat stinky flavor.
Nankotsu karaage (deep-fried chicken soft bones). KFC Original Recipe-ish.
Ajitsuke tamago (seasoned half-boiled eggs). I love eggs, but this was forgettable.
Butayaki okonomiyaki (pancake with grilled pork). A guilty pleasure, thanks to the rather addictive yam-like base. Close your eyes and it's almost like munching on those fried dim sum yam balls stuffed with minced pork.
Butaniku enoki (skewered grilled pork). No complaints; the meat was juicy and went well with the golden mushrooms.
Unagi yaki (grilled eel balls). Wasn't as greasy as versions at some other outlets, but there was only a miniscule, barely discernible amount of unagi in this.
