If it weren't for
the illuminated sign
advertising, "Fish
and Sake" in Eng-
lish, you might have
trouble finding this
second-story hide-
away in Ebisu. The
interior is modestly
appointed with a few
small tables around
a long wooden coun-
ter. This understat-
ed approach to decor
reflects the bar's
no-frills philoso-
phy. They specialize
in two things: fresh
fish and sake.

The fish comes di-
rectly from Tsukiji
every day. Seasonal
specials change
frequently, but
standards like the
fuwa-fuwa satsuma
age (Y650), fried
fish cakes, and the
namero (Y950) - raw
fish minced with
herbs - are avail-
able all year round
and come highly
recommended. The
fluffy and delicate
satsuma age release
a tiny puff of air
as you bite into
them. The namero
offers a contrast of
intense flavors -
bright versus briny
- in each mouthful.

The sake menu (in
Japanese and Eng-
lish) features over
fifty varieties and
changes with the
seasons. Along with
big names like Kudo-
ki Jozu and Hiroki
are lesser-known
producers like Shin-
kame, and even
smaller producers
like Mutsuhassen.
The friendly but
unobtrusive staff
can help you make
you make a selec-
tion. Sake is avail-
able in two sizes,
120ml (Y500-) and
180ml (Y750-). If,
for some reason, you
decide not to have
sake, the bar also
serves shochu and
awamori (about
twelve varieties).
