Service: Very friendly and welcoming. Great explanations.

Strong points: Traditional and modern izakaya gastronomy. Very inventive cuisine with introduction of some Western concepts. Great seafood. Great sake list. Wine and other alcohols available. Intensive use of local products combined with ingredients from other prefectures! Curry Lunch Sets!
As promised during my first visit at dinner time I finally managed to visit Kohaku in Shizuoka City to sample their curry!
A very Japanese entrance for curry at lunch!
Who would have known?
Actually the chef opens his restaurant at lunch time for the pure love of gastronomic research!
A very simple menu offering 5 different set lunches and a series of curries from plain to combinations!
Wat with the toppings there so many combinations that I will have to eat curry for lunch for a while.
Mind you it is the ideal food in summer when you tend not to eat enough!
Now, what combination did I order?
Can you guess?
Stir fried ginger pork!
Chopped vegetable salad of course!
And a beautiful crab/cream/potato/kabocha croquette!
And a big fresh raw egg to mix with the rice and curry sauce!
The complete lunch and so yummy!
To be followed (more combinations to sample!)…
