Visited at 12:30 on weekdays. The parking lot could only accommodate 3 cars, so I had failed many times, but I finally managed to get in. I ordered fried chicken with grated ponzu sauce instead of lees soup for an additional 140 yen. It was delicious as expected.
It wasn't very filling, but it was delicious and satisfying.
Will visit again.


Maybe it was bad timing today, but the two staff members were busy so it took a while.
Order daily specials and recommendations.
The daily specials of oyakodon and fried chicken looked a bit sparse, but I was quite satisfied.
The recommended yuzu pepper fried chicken was very delicious. I am satisfied with the fried chicken seasoning that goes well with the yuzu pepper.
