Izakaya: Dinner at Oddakui in Shizuoka City (Spring 2014)!

Service: Very friendly
Facilities: Overall, very clean. Superb washroom! One main room, one bar and private rooms
Prices: Appropriate to a little expensive
Strong points: Local traditional cuisine. Great sake and shochu!


The last time I had the occasion to visit Oddakui in oi Ku, Shizuoka City was with two Singaporean gusts last fall!
Last night was a much needed opportunity not to miss!


Oddakui since its last transformation last year has become a very busy place and it is always a good idea to reserve!


This time we decided to sit at the counter of the main room facing the street which includes a big horikotatsu room which can be divided according to the parties!


We did drink quite a few sake that night but the first drink was an ice cold beer typical of Shizuoka!


Aright, what did we have?


Whelk shellfish that came as the appetizer with the first drink!


An enormous fresh salad!
Always a good idea at the beginning of a well-watered dinner!


A Shizuoka specialty:
Deep-fried kuro hanpen/dark sardine past cakes!


Deep-fried satoimo/taro roots!


And naturally a great dish of sashimi of local fish prepared in the other room housing the bar!


Difficult to find such a combination of raw food aoutside our prefecture: sakuraebi/cherry shrimps and shirasu/sardine whiting!


Iidago octopus, marinated kodai seabream and katsuo/bonito!




Oddakui’s specialty: Char siu!


Oddakui is also popular for its oden!


Our choice: Gyusuji/beef tendons, daikon, qail eggs, chicken eggs and satsumaage!


For the ladies?
Oddakui even serves a succulent home-made dessert: Creme brulee!

See you there again! You bet!
