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.

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).

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.
