LDH Kitchen Izakaya Aobadai
Time Out says
At this new restaurant produced by Exile boy band member Kenchi Tachibana, you can enjoy a large variety of sake in an Edo-style ambience. It's a great place for visitors looking to experience a kaku-uchi (standing bar), tasting sake while enjoying typical bar grub. The restaurant also faces the Meguro River, making it a great spot for a drink during the spring when the cherry blossoms are in bloom.
On offer are about 40 types of sake by 30 different brands, all selected by Tachibana himself, who regularly visits breweries around Japan. Make sure to get a sip of the ‘Shuhari Tachibana’, Tachibana's own sake produced in collaboration with Matsumoto Shuzo, a Kyoto-based sake brewery founded in 1791.
Foodies can look forward to year-round oden (from ¥250 per item), plus other izakaya staples, including soba gyoza and spicy maze soba made with a savoury mala sauce.
