Kara LiKara Li: Best earl grey ice cream! All the mackerel sets are great!

DomoDomo: This place offers fine Japanese cuisine, but is not a traditional izakaya (居酒屋). Gyu-don here is burger patties and mashed potato served on rice. Try the grilled mackerel if you're a seafood fan. 'Shima Hokke' is the right one. Deliciously grilled mackerel.

Siyun F.Siyun Fan: Get the raw octopus in wasabi sauce - your best friend going with the warm sake or beer. So does the fried baby mackerels. Thank me later :)

Karlin W.Karlin Wong: Had avocado tofu and the mackerel roll. Pretty small portions but overall a decent meal out.

Han L.Han Lee: Avocado tofu is a must. It's got rich silky cheese like texture that melts in your mouth. Offers good selections of sake and great otsumami (foods go well with alcohol drinks) to go with them.
