You like soba (noodles) but also donburi (rice topped with meat or vegies). You like ramen but also Chinese donburi. When you want Japanese-style, try Oyabu, or Matsumoto, or Daikokuya. For Chinese-style, try Minrai (Wakamiya). Customer satisfaction is especially high at Matsumoto because you also get small bowls for tasting.

It’s long been known that the sardine cuisine at Iwashigumi in Kanazawa is delicious, but how delicious is it actually?

By the end of the Showa era, Western-style restaurants were everywhere in Japan, and gratin dishes were standard items on every menu.

I first heard about it at a neighborhood sushi shop. The master was very serious. “Kanazawa used to have no ramen tradition at all, but now it’s become a ramen battleground.” Soon thereafter, late in the evening, at another cafe in the neighborhood, as we were finishing up a game of backgammon, another shop master・・・

This pub restaurant is very familiar to Kanazawans. The background music, unchanged for 10 years, is likely to be 1970’s folk music. The overall atmosphere is very, very Showa. When I first walk in the door, I place my order for “shioyaki” (sardines grilled with salt). I don’t even have to look at the menu・・・

The last Hokuriku Shinkansen out of Kanazawa leaves at exactly 9:00 pm, so a one-day business traveler from Tokyo can finish work and still enjoy Kanazawa nightlife, at least for a while.
