Izakaya Hopping in Takadanobaba!



This time, I had a solo hashigo-zake in Takadanobaba 🥰.
It was my first time drinking alone, and I went to three different restaurants!
My impression of Takadanobaba is that it is a town where men and women of all ages gather and everyone seems to be having a good time!
All three restaurants are close to the station and I highly recommend them 💞.

Travel Itinerary

Taishu Izakaya Dai chan(大衆居酒屋 大ちゃん)

The first restaurant is located near the entrance to the shopping arcade, a one-minute walk from Takadanobaba Station.
It has a lot of seating and an open, retro atmosphere that will get you excited just being there 🥰🥰.
Looks like they are open for lunch from 11am 😋.

Alcoholic beverages are just so cheap!

Great for daytime drinking 💁‍♀️🍻

Dai chan salad 380 yen Nankotsu fried 380 yen

The MVP for me was the fried cartilage!
The crunchy, crispy texture was not only fun to eat, but it was so delicious I couldn’t stop 💞💞.
The Dai chan salad was more filling than I expected and the veggies were crispy 🥬.

Dai chan yaki 550 yen Yakitori 5-piece set 500 yen

The Dai chan-yaki recommended by this restaurant is so big that it is not the size of one person! But it was so delicious that I could eat it all by myself 🥰 It is a miracle of deliciousness!
The yakitori had just the right amount of flavor!

Medium draft beer 198 yen

Umeshu (plum wine) 198 yen
