Another one of Kazuo Ueda's former protégés at Tender, Masaru Yokota broke out on his own and opened this hidden basement gem in September 2011. A sherry connoisseur, Yokota named his establishment after the region of Cádiz, famed for its place in the Spanish 'sherry triangle' where much of the world's finest fortified wine is produced. The clientele here includes plenty of lone travellers – nearby Hamamatsucho Station is connected to Haneda Airport via the Tokyo Monorail – but you're also likely to meet single ladies and gentlemen dropping by after a hard day at the office. There are six seats at the counter and three at the lone table, which can only be used by 'polite guests'. Spacious it isn't, but we'd be prepared to endure far worse in exchange for one of Yokota's superb gimlets.
