Here's an eatery that does things its own way, with loads of respect for the food but a distinct lack of the kinds of decorations you might have come to expect from Japanese restaurants. And they don't have just one set-lunch menu, but nine to choose from, from the house menu to a tempura-based one or a one where teriyaki don is featured. Everything is served with rice, miso soup, salad, a drink and coffee (from 1pm to 4pm). Those behind the now-closed Samurai restaurant (in Cuesta de Santo Domingo) opened this bar and restaurant with an eye on details, both culinary and interior design. Head over and try the scallops, Japanese butterfish or sake mojito. And the cellar has an interesting selection of organic wines, among other house delights.
