High end Izakaya
Hoping for serendipity when it came to finding a decent restaurant, we had a few false starts. Against my better judgment, we asked for a recommendation from one of the places that was full. He directed us to Kuta – a high end izakaya style restaurant and we came up trumps. This is the kind of place that has a bewildering array of a la carte options but thankfully, some set menus to fall back on. Once we had settled on the Y5000 one, the dishes came thick and fast. A winning starter is a plate of assorted sashimi. Other items were described in vague terms so as to rack up the anticipation. The tempura included some fugu – the famed puffer fish with some highly toxic parts.
