After a private bath and couples massage, my wife and I had lunch here. We both had the aji amarillo ramen and sake. As if the massage and bath had not released enough endorphins and purged the poisons! This was hands down the best ramen/ramyun...More

Some in our group had the Bibibimbop Bowl, some had salads, others had ramen. We had floor-seating, which the staff accommodated with extra blankets for one of the people in our group. It was a delightful lunch in a soothing atmosphere.

Description
A Japanese Adobe izakaya serving upscale small plates--creatively prepared, locally-sourced meat and produce with an emphasis on seasonality. Great selection of organic green teas from Shizuoka, locally roasted coffee drinks, ten different japanese craft beers, and the best selection of artisanal microbrew cold sake within 1000 miles. The most beautiful outdoor restaurant patio in town.
