Help I've lost my izakaya!

Butter Fight | Feb 7, 2012 06:55 PM

I am in search of a nice izakaya. First Terried sake house closed down, then last year Place Yuu disappeared, now I don't even know where to start. Is there anything out there like either of these places?

I guess I could tell you why I liked these places?

Loved Terried sake house for their cheap prices, total lack of ambiance and unpretentious, sparsely flavored, delicious food. Loved Yuu for similar reasons, except for the cheap part and the lack of ambiance part. Special mention has to go to their matsutake dobin mushi which filled me with awe the first time I had it.

As a side note, I really like Musha, but it feels like a different class of izakaya. The food feels more modern or trendy than the places I listed above and I guess I'm looking for a little more traditional?
