Service: very easy–going and friendly.
Equipment & facilities: Very clean overall. Superb washroom. 2 floors
Strong points: Better than average pub/bar food. Drinks, of course!
The “drinking scene” in Shizuoka City has been changing pretty quickly recently and an area worth a second and third look is a new alley tucked on the first floor of a building called Imakoko in Shichiken Cho Aoi Ku) in the a street just parallel to Showa Street.
Among the bars, restaurants and izakaya you will discover a quaint place with an even stranger name, “13 Anchorz”!
With a sign like that you can’t go wrong! LOL
The place was open on January 11th this year as indicated on this sake bottle!
You can’t miss it with such a view inside!
Written in English!
Reasonable drinks and food.
Opened late ad closed late!
The young owner, Kyoken Sugiyama/杉山陽平さん, after a stint in the Japanese Self Defense Army did spend quite some time in Ireland before deciding to open his impossible to classify establishment as it is a combination of a bar and izakaya!
One can sit at bar, especially welcome when you are on your own!
Or you can sit at a table with company, or on the 2nd floor for more privacy!
As for the drinks, you may choose your own bottled beer or bottle of wine and open it yourself or order it (you might have to wait some time though as Kyoken’s food is quite popular)!
Have a good look at the drinks and their “companions” at the bar!
I had a menacing Mexican IPA for a start!
Have a good look at the menu!
The ladies will love this soft blue cheese called Fourme D’Ambert (France) served with honey nuts and bread!
Now, this the dish I would recommend to all (coming into 3 different sizes!)!
Fish and chips made with mahi mahi fish from Shizuoka Prefecture!
Arguably the best fish and chips in Shizuoka City!
Great when washed down with American Anchor Steam Beer!
Expect me to visit the place again soon as the music is also terrific!
