Recommendation by Lemi
Operating since 1925, Shinsuke preserves the old-school izakaya experience—complete with a long timber counter manned by a “master” decked in a happi (法被, traditional short coat) and hachimaki (鉢巻, traditional bandana). Get the signature Kitsune Rakuretto (deep-fried tofu stuffed with raclette cheese) and pair it with the restaurant’s solitary brand premium-grade sake, which they have been pouring out since its opening.
