The stretch beneath the railway tracks in Yurakucho has a plethora of watering holes to choose from, but Shin-Hinomoto, aka Andy’s, has been one of the favourites for decades now. Its nickname comes from British owner Andy, who took over his parents-in-law’s business together with his Japanese wife, whose family established the izakaya two generations ago.
The menu changes daily depending on what the market offers, but you can’t go wrong with a sashimi platter (ludicrously good value for its size, at ¥2,500 for a two-person platter) and their fist-sized karaage (fried chicken). Good luck finding a seat first though: the place gets rammed every night with a mix of locals, expats and tourists, while the jolly staff keep the atmosphere convivial.
