    Tofuro: Jazzy Izakaya with Sizzling Food

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tofuro is one of my all-time favorite Izakaya (Japanese Tapa style pub). Here you can enjoy everything Japanese food has to offer.

    The architecture of Tofuro is one of the important aspects of creating that unique atmosphere. Wood screens and wood benches, Irori (open hearth) in the middle cooking fresh fish on the sticks. If you would like more privacy, you can ask for a private room looking down the crowd downstairs.

    Food is another important aspect of what makes Tofuro my favorite. Along with regular menu, you will get a piece of paper that has special dishes for the day. Depending on what is fresh that day, or maybe how the chef feels like on that day, you will get something different all the time. Most importantly, whatever dish you choose you are guaranteed to get tasty, fresh food.

    Don't be reluctant to ask for a English menu if you are not familiar with the language. Some stuff can also speak very good English and would be very happy to help you choose food.

    Favorite Dish: As I described above, whatever you get would be very nice but especially any kind of law fish (sashimi) is very nice. Look out for what is fresh on the piece of paper that I mentioned.

    If you are not too keen on low fish, try their Irori grilled fish or skewered meat (kushiyaki).

    They have a killer drink menu as well and my all-time favorite is Ume-shu (plum wine) on the rocks.

    Directions: There are also many other locations all over Tokyo. To find out a location near you please refer to their website. (In Japanese only)
