Looking for a Family-friendly restaurant/izakaya for dinner time?
Well, This is my new favourite Izakaya introduced to be by the famous Blogger in Tokyo @thetokyochapter.
Kichiri is a modern Japanese ( fusion) Izakaya located right by the Ebisu station. Kichiri is a chain of restaurants so, if you’re fan keep an eye out for them all over Japan. The menu is in English and its open until 2am (last orders at 1am)
The restaurant’s interior is minimal, chic and futuristic.
Kick off your shoes, relax and make yourself comfortable, that’s Kichiri style. The tables are all floor level but the place where you put your legs (below the knee) is cut out – so your body is still making a ”sitting in chair” shape.
Some of the highlight’s from our dinner one week ago…….it ended up being a wine and cheese night :)) I loved the food here. Small dishes deliciously prepared and well presented.
If you order Guacamole and chips, the dish is made in front of you to order, and to your taste plus you get to choose your own avocado.
To finish of our wine and cheese night we called for ‘Chocolate Fondant Cake’ – It was soon good!!
Honestly, is there anything better than molten chocolate lava cake?? It has the reputation of being basic, but if basic tastes rich like chocolate cake with a liquid, melty center, well call me basic!!! Yeah, its a little overplayed, but I love desserts that combine hot and cold and warm from the oven lava cake with creamy cold icecream is my idea go awesome :))
Overall, I would say its an above average Izakaya with good ambiance and plenty of room for larger parties. Good for groups in a pinch.
