Restaurants & Cafés


Otafuku has been serving oden since the Meiji era, in an old-school setting complete with paper lanterns and well-kept garden. All those years of experience show, too: the oden soup is light, with a delicate flavour that seems to have a little more to it than the standard bonito and kombu. The main oden items include some unusual options, such as makiyuba (rolled tofu skin) and shinodamaki (a mixture of meat, vegetables and fish wrapped in a layer of deep-fried tofu), and there are also a number of other dishes on offer, accompanied by a good selection of sake.
