An Izakaya in Cinemascope

A place to eat in Roppongi ? Far from the restaurants where the prices soar? Without breaking your piggy bank? It exists. It is also the opportunity to revisit a cinema classic!

The XXL sized Izakaya Gonpachi . No fuss, no rip off. The children of Edo (old name of the capital) turn their noses up and expats disdain the location. Regardless, those in Tokyo for a day find what they want in an area that is difficult to pierce, that is to say a taste of Japanese atmosphere and nibbles.

Izakaya Gonpachi offers a host of Japanese tapas in a lively setting and a decor that inspired the American director Quentin Tarantino for the legendary scene of his film Kill Bill (2003). Tofu, a few pieces of octopus, edamame (soybeans), assorted tempura (battered vegetables or fish) and other small dishes can be ordered throughout the evening. It is best to choose a table upstairs, so as to watch, the show of guests joyfully hailing waiters and waitresses to satisfy their appetites. The atmosphere is friendly, the staff are cheerful, and the bill is not too expensive.
