Shinbashi : So popular beef cutlet (牛かつ おか田)
Follow the line 30 minutes before the opening time ! I took a day off for just going to Toyotaya the other day :P But Toyotaya is open nighttime only, so we went to a popular shop in Shinbashi tha...

We had tea, walked around Shinbashi and manga cafe for killing time until the opening time of Toyotaya.

JR Hirai station.

Without this izakaya, I would not have got off the station forever.

Hirai : Monkfish, soft roe hotpot at Toyotaya (豊田屋)
This season has come this year, too ! Now winter season has set in. The best season for Hotpot is here! Though now I eat hotpot even in summer. But, there's precious hotpot that can be eaten only i...

We got to there before 4 p.m, the opening time. Though it was raining heavily, there were already some people waiting in front of the shop in the rain.
We didn’t take the reservation this time. But we could enter the shop because the shop don’t accept reservations of the long counter table. So if you come to the shop before the opening time, you may enter the shop just after the opening.

Every tables were reserved.

開店直後、テーブルはすでに予約席に。カウンターもほとんど満席に。

Those yellow boards are signs of reservation.
Reservation signs were pieces of corrugated cardboard before 😛

The long counter table was nearly full just after its opening time.

My drink was whisky highball (ウィスキーハイボール, 300 yen).

Its coating was not seems tempura. But those conger eels were soft and tasty.

I know women are less prone to gout. But I am eating such foods too much. I often eat mentaiko, too. I’ll take care.
