Oedo Happyaku Yacho / 大江戸八百八町

We are still in Ryogoku, which means Sumo-land, so for lunch in Sumo-land, what else is there but chanko nabe!  What is chanko nabe?  It is a one-pot meal filled with vegetables and meat (sometimes fish), served in a broth.  Very delicious.  Great for cold weather.  We chose a restaurant right near the rail station called [Oedo Happyaku Yacho].


Check this out, a huge Sumo ring built in the middle of the restaurant.


Nice chopstick package / お箸入れの袋可愛い

Before digging into our nabe, its beer time.  The miso soup was delicious too.

We ordered some side dishes as well like deep fried oysters.

Grin! He's already updating more frequently. ^^

Were the portions relatively small? Coz that's a lot of food!

Now for something that has nothing to do with this post, but I think - as a bookworm - you'll enjoy this blog.
