Service: excellent, easy-going and very friendly
Facilities: great washroom, great cleanliness overall
Prices: very reasonable, good value.
Strong points: Very fresh local ingredients especially organic vegetables extensively used.

I will have to be careful, or UZU Izakaya is bound to become an addiction!
I visited that increasingly popular (need to reserve on Fridays especially!) last Friday for a quick dinner and some Shizuoka sake!

UZU-09-06-12-a

Thye kabocha/pumpkin tofu snack was still there!

UZU-09-06-12-b

Any sake is served in a different vessel, and you are offered a choice of cup for each sake you savour!

UZU-09-06-12-c

Fried organic new potatoes with their skins!
Uzu specializes in organic vegetables and “shamo” chicken!

UZU-09-06-12-d

Organic “Young Corn” grilled inside their husks. The “hair” around the corn is edible!

UZU-09-06-12-f

Again, a rare morsel to please vegans and vegetarians:
“Young corn” organically grown by Mr. Matsuki in Shibakawa Cho, at the foot of Mount Fuji, served raw! Yes, you head/read right, raw!
These were the only two available that night and I didn’t have to pay for them! Slightly different from the above, they are very tender and sweet. You eat them as they are, no need for “dressing”!

Now, that’s an iteresting morsel: Shamo Chicken Gratin inside a small organic kabocha/pumpkin!
Just small enough not to worry about the calories!

UZU-09-06-12-g

Another bottle of sake!

UZU-09-06-12-h

Grilled “Isaki/Chicken Grunt” ( a strange name for a fish!), caught off Shizuoka shores. Elegant!

UZU-09-06-12-i

Deep-fried “shamo” chicken thighs and breast fillets!

No need for dessert!
