If you're looking for a pleasant cilantro specialty bar with owls, look no further than this popular counter bar in Takadanobaba. The diverse menu features original dishes like an invigorating octopus and pink grapefruit cilantro salad as well as excellent Nepalese momo dumplings, while numerous owls provide a decorative backdrop to your visit.

Drinks include beer, wine, sake and shochu, and prices for both drinks and food are very reasonable - most dishes are in the Y600-700 range. Be prepared for a leisurely visit though, as output from the open kitchen can be slow, giving you more time to inspect the resident owls (and vice versa).

If you want more owls and less cilantro, the bar runs an owl cafe on weekend afternoons from 1-5pm.
