Had a wonderfull meal at Izakaya Chikara. Very good raw mackerel marinated in vinegar, 6,5 hours pork stew, spicy wings, rice with mackerel, and a lot more.
Everything was real and you can easily taste that it has been done with a lot of care.
But for us yeh mother of the cook, YOKO, was the star of the evening: charming, making conversation although our Japanese is very basic (sic). She made us feel quite at home, though very far from what we call home.
The cook and the waitress are also very friendly and we left after a great dinner and a very “ warm” feeling.
If you’re in the neighborhood you should try it!

It’s a bar with traditional Japanese fare and fusion American stuff. There’s an English menu. We got the fried mackerel and stewed pork. The fried mackerel was good, but the pork was amazing: tender, flavorful, and fatty.

The staff is friendly and talkative and the proprietor speaks English pretty well. He’s a pretty interesting guy to talk to! He spent some time in Seattle, introduced us to his friend who was there at the bar too. He even gave us some samples of the local sake! Which were delicious, and I would recommend getting.

Thank ninjalie
