Equipment & facilities: overall very clean. Shared but very clean and complete washroom.
Prices: reasonable
Strong points: Hawaiian gastronomy, international gastronomy, craft beers.

Picture of the old Minato Yokocho!

Some time ago, CSA Real estate Co., actually based in Mochimune, among other projects took on to renew completely the old derelict Minato/harbor Yokocho/Alley to invite existing and new tenants to provide a much needed food and drinks site to the ever increasing number of tourists. Moreover, since bathers are rarer and rarer on the beach most shacks and bars have disappeared from the sea front it has become a natural spot to patronize as it caters for so many tastes and priorities!
I have already visited and written about a few places and will continue for some time!

This time I visited Sea Zoo!

I classified it as a Hawaiian bar restaurant, but I could have followed their own title of “Healthy Dining and Bar”!
And thanks to the new concept it is open all year round!

When open it has all kinds of board menu outside to peruse before entering!

Not only food for lunch and dinner but drinks of all kinds all day long!

Although it is also open in winter it definitely has a summer flavor about it!

And do not forget this also a bar! LOL

Definitely the place for craft beer lovers although all kinds of drinks are on offer!

Even at lunch I would not pass the opportunity to enjoy a tasty craft beer!

A la carte food changing all the time!

But the lunch sets are not only well above average but also so reasonably priced!

Set lunches are served with a “mini salad” which has not nothing “mini” about it!

Italian organic pasta in Peperocino style with sardine whiting/shirasu from Mochimune!

Healthy (no oil or water used!) coconuts chicken curry!

No risk of getting fat here, that is if you do not abuse the booze! LOL
But definitely a good bet anytime you visit Mochimune1
