The former home of the Torikichi Sanpei chain izakaya right by Meguro Station was completely renovated and reopened as this exclusively rice-focused eatery in July 2016. In addition to several varieties of plain rice, cooked in a clay pot, the menu features Iwate chicken raised on rice, plus a plentiful selection of sake and even wine and craft beer that incorporates Japan's staple grain in some shape or form. And if you still haven't had enough of the sticky carb after all that, go for the rice ice cream, which has an unlikely, almost mochi-like texture.
