They are well known by local people and always crowded, in other words, hidden gems that are not known by tourists.

Kuro-chan

It's located only 3-min. away from Koraku Hotel.

My recommendation is " Oden", Japanese stewed ingredients such as potato, egg, chikuwa surimi, daikon radish etc...some are simmered at very low heat for more than a day.  

Well, Oden of Kuro-chan is famous for its confidential soup they cook with the ingredients.

 

Must try !!

Next recommendation is ”Sawara no Tataki" (lightly roasted sawara)

Sawara is a kind of fish Okayaman people like, it's a popular local cuisine enjoyed in Sashimi style or simply grilled or boiled in stock with soy sauce.

”Potato Salad”

I love Potato salad of Kuro-chan.

Sometimes, just a little difference makes a big difference somehow.

”Tempura”

A plate of deep fried fish is a perfect tapa for my beer.

Tama-shouten

5-min. walk from Koraku Hotel.

It's close to the cinema Merpa & Toyoko Inn near the Bic Camera in front of the station.

This is a Popular but a hideout restaurant-bar I often go. 

 

To start with, we make a toast "Kanpai" with ”Takezake”. (Bamboo sake)

”Beef cheek meat” (Gyu Hoho Niku)

Then I order a very tasty and tender stewed-beef with a portion of mashed potato.

Specialty ”Daikon Tale”

I love this tale soup with big Daikon radish. 

That's superb, you must try !

"Fried mini tomatoes”

It might sound weired. But this is one of the most popular menus in this restaurant-bar.

Deep fried tomatoes, they are pretty nice !

As this place is very popular among local people, you should make a reservation before going.  

※Please ask us at reception to book a table.
