I was able to visit “Anko” who I wanted to visit!

I made a reservation with a friend and visited on Sunday at 6:00pm.
My friend was finally able to make a reservation for the third time! I was happy.

What time can I make a reservation? It seems that it is easier to get a reservation if you make a reservation with a certain amount of time in mind.

The obanzai platter consists of several small bowls with various fillings, and you can enjoy a variety of delicious dishes, making you feel happy just by eating this one dish.
However, when I see what the customers around me are ordering, and when I see the food on the platter in front of me, I want to eat one after another, so I end up ordering more.

All of the dishes use slightly different ingredients or seasonings, but they are delicious!
It's like addition, subtraction, and multiplication in cooking.
It's a store you'll want to go to again soon.


I was looking for a delicious restaurant near my hotel and it had good reviews so I stopped by. This is a restaurant where you will be completely satisfied with everything from the deliciousness of the food to the beauty of the presentation. When I asked for takeout for dinner on the ferry, they kindly obliged, and it has become a wonderful memory of my trip. If you ever go to Nagoya again, this is a store you definitely want to stop by.


This is a small and cute “obanzai” shop with only a counter (^o^)

We recommend having a quick drink or drinking alone on your way home from work, or the delicious ``Obanzai'' made by the energetic female owner.

Delicious-looking obanzai are arranged side by side on the counter, and it's fun to look at them and choose them.Everything looks delicious, so you'll be spoiled for choice♪

Whatever you eat is delicious, and you can order a single item from the boat menu or have an ``assortment'' if you request, so you can enjoy it all.

The female owner has a very cheerful personality, so even if you are a female customer or alone, you can drink with peace of mind.

It's a counter so it's easy to get along with the customers, and the owner speaks well and cares about the customers, making it a ``comfortable'' store.

When I drink alone, I eat and drink quietly when I sit at the counter, and I tend to use my smartphone a lot, but I don't think you need to worry about this at this restaurant lol.

Since the number of seats is small and it is a popular restaurant, I think it is best to call or make a reservation when visiting (^^)/

I would like to visit you again! Thank you for the meal♪
