Beef, pork, chicken … meat party can be held at cozy dining bar !

I know there’s popular restaurant in Asakusabashi that is posted by my acquaintance on Facebook so requently and I had wanted to go there for a long time.

ずっと気になっていたグラシアにようやく行けました!

The chef said he arrange our meals within our budget and taste, though the menu don’t have words “chef’s choice”, “course” and “set”.
I put prices besides those name, but the chef arrange those sizes for four people and some of foods were not on the menu. So, it’s just for reference.
It cost me near 6000 yen in all.

The restaurant is small and have only a counter table and one table there.

At first, we toasted with drinks !

  1. 4pm is very early for dinner! Is that usual for Japan?

    • Ryoko says:

      No it is unusual. This shop is more restaurant than food bar. Maybe most of visitors around 4 p.m. eat some foods and enjoy alcoholic drinks.
      But we didn’t 😛 Our target was foods and ate much as dinner because it is small and very popular restaurant and we might not be able to enter the restaurant if we went to there later time.
