Rakan/
Yaesu: Oden
₯3287-1981
€Data
This is one of the
more accessible
places in town to
try gourmet oden -
they're open all day
rather than just
evenings, and the
spacious counter and
train-station loca-
tion make it a com-
fortable spot for
solo diners. Lunch
(served until 2pm)
is an especially
good deal - for
Y1200 you can get an
oden-centered meal
featuring six pieces
of oden in broth
plus sashimi, a
magnificent stewed
tomato, wakame soup,
pickles and rice.
The oden, simmered
in a mild dashi
broth, is fairly
typical, although
the spicy fish ball
was a pleasant sur-
prise.

The oden selection
expands after 4:
30pm, as the subtle
dashi-type oden is
joined by hearty
miso-stewed items
like roast duck and
pork tongue. As-
sorted platters of
five oden pieces are
priced at Y1600 for
miso and Y1500 for
dashi. If you want
to make a night of
it, there's a full
menu of izakaya
small dishes - sa-
shimi, grilled fish,
fried foods - along
with sake and sho-
chu. The intensely
flavored, miso-based
beef-tendon stew
(gyusuji-nikomi) is
especially recom-
mended, and it's
also available as a
lunchtime set for
Y1000.

Seating is at the
twelve-person coun-
ter or a big common
table, both with
sunken floor seat-
ing. Take your shoes
off at the entrance
to the restaurant.
