Service: Easy-going, informal and friendly
Facilities and equipment: Clean. Psychedelic Washroom!
Strong points: Typical Japanese izakaya food and drinks for all ages. Open late.
Sometimes (actually as often as possible) it is a good idea to take a break from the great restaurants in Shizuoka and to mingle with great easy and friendly customers and staff in a typical Japanese izakaya!
There are loads of them in town and some open until really late!
I have just discovered one which seems to be extremely popular with the locals of all ages, genders and classes: Table Ribbon!
The whole place right from the entrance is a happy bric a brac from vinyl covered kitchen tables to rugs on the floor!
You must visit the washroom! It is definitely crazy!
The whole menu is written in brush paint, but if you don’t understnad don’t worry you will be able to communicate!
As I said the food and drinks are typical izakaya fare: from pasta…
nikomino/Japanese simmered food…
If you ask for room-temperature Japanese sake it is served in a tea pot!
Great vegetable tamagoyaki! A must try!
I loved their sui-gyoza/boiled gyoza!
And of course Shizuoka-style yakisoba!
It is a busy place! Make sure to reserve on week-ends!
Great fun for ladies and gentleemn, Japanese and expats!
