Another Oden place at Kagurazaka
Not only their signature Oden dishes, I enjoy other menu as well though they need to brash up drink menu …

Still I would love to come back in winter


I had oden and sake. Oden has a very gentle taste. The drink is Dassai. It was delicious. The master is a little scary, but when you talk to him, he seems calm. My wife is a quiet but wonderful person. The prices are a little high, but I think it's worth it.


Even when I have no appetite due to summer fatigue
easily accepted
Summer oden.

In addition to the standard seeds
Seasonal recommendations
I had conger eel and shungiku.

While drinking alcohol
Black Shichimi or Ichimi Arikino
I feel like the soup stock is too gentle.
It has a very delicate taste
It's decent and delicious.

Lately, I've been liking kneaded things.

There are only two employees, so the number of items is small.

I ate it this time, but I didn't take any photos.
If you come 2 or 3 times, you might be able to complete all types ♡
