Expert in Satsuma local cuisine

This place was recommended to us by Japanese friends and we now understand why they like it so much. It is worth while to take the large combination menu and not only the Shabu Shabu since the accompanying tapas style small dishes present many of the local specialties.

When it came it was pretty ordinary and wasn't cheap. The beer, though was nice and cold and served in a stainless steel vacuum tankard. Tasted good. On the... More
