Nearest Landmarks:

Slot Machine/Pachinko House

The place looks like an old spanish-style house which reminded me of my country’s famous heritage place “Intramuros”.


“First/Ground floor view”


“Second floor view”


Overall, the place has a very comfortable space for the customers. The interior feels like home and the warm-toned lighting are just perfect for drinking, eating, and having memorable conversation. They have counter seats so single diners are very much welcome. It’s also highly recommended for dating and family affairs. You need not to worry about the number of customers because the place has a wide space and a lot of seats like table seats, counter seats, tatami (a low table set on tatami flooring) seats, and Horigotatsu (a traditional Japanese table that’s low to the ground and has a recessed floor beneath) seats. All types of customers are welcome whether locals or foreigners.

Recommended Menu

This menu includes their recommended course

Recommended drinks – Rich Lemon Sour

Other drinks avaialable: Japanese Sake, Japanese Shōchū

Otoshi set

It’s customary in Izakayas/bars to serve otoshi since there are some delays with the order preparation and take note, it’s mandatory. This small dish serves as an appetizer so the customers can enjoy their drinks while waiting for their orders. Regardless if it’s eaten or not, it’ll be included on the customer’s bill.

“fresh mix veggies”

“raddish topped with sweetened veggies”

“dipping sauce -(sweet, spicy, and plain salt)”

Gyl’s Review

“Bettako Salad”
I’d say this salad is really one of the highlights of this Izakaya. The consistency of the sauce (oiliness), and sesami seeds compliment the taste of it.

“Cheese Tamagoya – (Cheese Eggroll)”
This one is also my favorite. Well, I love cheese and eggs in general. The melted cheese inside this eggroll is so mouth-watering.

This is oftenly ordered to refresh your tastebuds. Salty and soft.

“Thai fish – Sashimi”
Thai fish has become one of my favs while staying here in Japan as it gives me that satisfying taste while unnoticeably metling inside my mouth.

“Horse meat”
My first time to try this. I find its taste unexplanable but it has a soft texture, definitely no foul smell and easy to chew.

“Yakitori set”
Oh yes! I love Yakitori and this set just exceeded my expectation. This Yakitori set just made my night unforgettable. Salty taste with a perfect tare(sauce) mix.

“Soft-bone Yakitori”


“Plain Yakitori-grilled chicken meat”

Drinks I ordered:

“a glass of beer”

“shequasar sour – (citrus depressa sour)”

“orange sour”
