There is an exquisite pan in Nakameguro, Tokyo that you can’t even taste in Hakata. “Hakata Motsunabe” at “Torigoya Main Store” is the true taste of soy sauce base. The mad cow riot that the built-in is especially worried about. The store is crowded with crowded customers every day. In November, the Higashiyama store opened near the main store.

“No need for writing is needed. Customers will see it with the most severe eyes,” says master Tsunemi Ayano (52). The only thing that is used in the meat market in Shinagawa is that processed on that day. The soft and elastic texture is just because it is fresh.

It was 12 years ago that a hot pot with this restaurant menu was added. The staff from Hakata, who was enrolled at the time, showed that there is a pan that can be eaten all year round. Mr. Ayano from Takamatsu, Shikoku, who was n’t willing to ride at first, said he liked it once. Existence quickly spread by word of mouth and became a specialty dish of the store. There are also Hakata flavors such as menta-tamagoyaki, chin dishes, and vinegar, and many visitors from Kyushu are visiting.

Not only the taste, but also the atmosphere inside the restaurant is exactly the same as that of Hakata. Talents that come to the store and baseball players’ signature paper and posters are placed on the wall. The number is 210. There are also big names such as Keisuke Kuwata who lives in the neighborhood. There are many regulars, such as Enka Matsubara, Enka, and Kohei Otomo. Among them, the talent Hiroko Anzai often shows his face and eats a laver sashimi and a hot pot. “Hiroko has the best face when eating,” says Ayano. She ’s a popular fashion leader for young women, but she ’s still in the store.

The small “Hakata Izakaya” in Tokyo welcomes you today with a unique smell of boiled cabbage and leek.
