If you need a change of pace from raw fish then this is the place to grill up some meat. Excellent rice. Great location along the cozy alley of Pontocho. We had several shrimp grilled on the hot stone, chicken, and then pork rib. I ended up cooking the pork rib extra crispy and added a pinch of the salt...best bacon I have had. Rice takes 30 minutes and reportedly is the grain selected by the Royalty. It was pretty good but not sure I could tell a huge difference. Great staff and very friendly and speak English which is very helpful. Near Sonjo station. Walk across river, first left (south) and then right, then left down the alley and first right.
