A great place to hang out with friends to grab a bite or meal and some drinks while catching up. Most dishes average at about $9--though it can add up to quite a bit if you don't pick & choose carefully.
The carbs section with the ika-meshi is a little too rich and heavy. Too much cheese & creaminess in the rice "stuffed" in the squid to actually make it work well. The crab croquettes, though described on the menu as "creamy" was more pasty and sticky as if it was undercooked than it was yummy creamy--it as quite difficult to eat, perhaps, it was undercooked, or, perhaps, it was meant to be served that way (the batter is nice, crispy & light), but I make a point to avoid ordering that again. The kobe-anything dishes are quite tasty whether they be raw or cooked.
The 3 or so desserts aren't memorable, but they aren't bad either, just rather generic. The "Mystery Ice Cream" sounds more intriguing than it tastes though I've never asked what it actually was, it didn't taste "strange" or "wow" so it didn't matter enough to pique my curiousity.
Since they've started posting their menu outside and with the signs of "Hungry? Thirsty?" out front, it at least lets ppl know it's actually a restaurant inside, though I'd have thought the "Hungry? Thirsty?" part would be a beacon to the street bumbs to come a beggaring, I do like the mysteriousness of it before now when there was no indication at all outside that this is indeed an eatery. But, hey, you can't keep the secret to yourself forever, right? That wouldn't be good for their business, though it would be good for me in that I would easily be able to find seating at any time of the day, any day of the week.
Definitely a restaurant and menu with great potential.
