Teppanyaki and Okonomiyaki "Matsunami" in Ningyocho

When I stopped by at the second restaurant, I was lucky enough to find one table vacant, so I entered.
It's a beautifully renovated space.

From this month's recommended sake

silk snow660yen
Junmai Ginjo Taisetsu Nozo
fancy glasses
660 yen per cup
This is a fairly cost-effective sake, isn't it?

Daishichi pure rice
Namamoto 770 yen

Matsunami grilled 1133 yen
A simple thing called hand-peeled clams and green onions.

It will be a style that you will bake yourself.

When I pulled the oil, the rich scent of sesame drifted gently.
Unusual, isn't it?

The green onions and clams also had a good fragrance, and I enjoyed not only the taste but also the fragrance.

The amount of Matsunami-yaki itself is rather small, so it seems that even one person can eat it.
Next time, I would like to order various kinds and see the difference in taste and aroma.

Today is the second time for light food and drink, but since there are many teppanyaki menus, I would like to try teppanyaki as well.
Although it is a long-established store, it has a bright atmosphere and the customer service was polite.
It's a wonderful store.


Matsunami is a famous restaurant representing Tokyo that also participates in the Teppan Conference. I was selfish and had the third generation cook it for me. Yakisoba with shucked clams, asparagus, and minced beef. I am grateful for the opportunity to experience the Okonomiyaki culture that is unique to the Ningyocho area.


Established in 1951, Matsunami is a famous teppanyaki and okonomiyaki restaurant. The okonomiyaki is full of originality.

Okonomiyaki is
★Matsunami-yaki (clams, green onions)
★Order Naniwayaki (mitsuba, small pillar, kamaboko, egg)

A type of okonomiyaki where you can enjoy the fresh ingredients themselves, such as clams and small pieces of shellfish. It has a unique flavor that goes better with soy sauce than with sauce.

★I also received the Teppanyaki set.
It contains several items, including large, fresh, plump scallops and high-quality domestically-produced thinly sliced ​​beef. As expected, this menu is also baked with carefully selected ingredients.

★I also ordered ``yakisoba''. The taste does not disappoint as expected. With squid and mitsuba on top, this yakisoba also has a strong Japanese atmosphere.

Everything on the menu is beyond imagination and delicious.
This is a teppanyaki restaurant that caters to adults.
