Stew and Motsuyaki is also good dishes of Izakaya Koji, but what we want to recommend you to try is「Natto Aburaage」. It has very cute looking. You should have it with just one bite since the Natto inside will spill over. These affordable and home-made-like dishes are attractive point in Izakaya. Let’s enjoy with Sake as well.
