Hakata cuisine -
traditional cooking
from Fukuoka in
northern Kyushu - is
the specialty of
this rather boister-
ous izakaya in Naka-
no's bar zone. Be-
sides serving excel-
lent food, Jidoriya
offers a respectable
sake list of around
fifteen premium
varieties, available
in tasting sizes
(60ml) and three-
part tasting sets
(Y990) in case you
want to compare
different breweries
and styles.

A more delicate than
average gyu motsu
nikomi (beef organ-
meat stew) is one of
our favorites here -
the flavors of the
various meats shine
through, while
blocks of tofu pro-
vide a nice balance
for the rich soup.
The deep-fried
chicken skin is
crunchy and surpris-
ingly sweet, while
the momo tataki
(chicken thigh) is
pleasantly chewy and
delivers an intense
charcoal flavor.

The staff is friend-
ly and helpful with
sake decisions, and
the atmosphere is
lively, with a pre-
fab retro-style
decor of corrugated
metal paneling and
old beer and sake
posters. Budget
around Y4000 for
dinner with drinks.
English-language
menus are available.
