  • Minced Pork and Egg with flat udon was life changing. Everything was delicious and the ambience took us back to our favorite izakaya in Kyoto
  • Spicy pork on flat udon was perfect! Grilled salmon on rice with dashi was delicious, and yellowfin sashimi was great as always. Great place for a late dinner.
  • Small but tasteful portions
