Even in Akita Prefecture, which is a minor prefecture among the six prefectures in Tohoku, there are well-known izakaya with constant customers. Eiraku Shokudo, a popular restaurant that has already been introduced on numerous food blogs. While the other restaurants along the way from the station are all quiet old birds, this one is almost full right after it opens ...
Eiraku Shokudo ｜ Sake until you are satisfied ... A famous izakaya in Akita City that is irresistible for sake lovers
Eiraku Shokudo to introduce this time ... The official name of the restaurant is "Restaurant Eiraku". It seems that it used to be open for lunch because it only has a restaurant, but now it is only open at night as an izakaya.
It was the morning of the day I arrived in Akita that I learned of the existence of this shop. So I couldn't make a reservation and went directly to the store, but fortunately I was able to slip into the counter seat where only one seat was available.
If you come to Eiraku Shokudo, you don't need "beer for the time being"! It is recommended to immerse yourself in the sake world from the beginning with three types of sake
The popularity of Eiraku Shokudo ... The biggest reason is the existence of a menu called "Three kinds of sake". You can choose 3 of your favorite sake from the list of sake on the wall, and the price is only 900 yen! Exceptionally cheap.
From famous places to maniac sake, the price does not change even if you order only expensive ones for 900 yen. At this Eiraku Shokudo, you don't need to say "Beer for the time being!" If you like sake, we recommend you to go directly to sake.
That's why I ordered three kinds of sake because it's salty ... Oh, wasn't alcohol prohibited? No, I have to convey the greatest charm of Eiraku Shokudo here ... First of all, I asked for three famous places, "Tennoto," "3th generation," and "Daisai."
While squeezing these three cups, I will pick up some dishes. Alcohol is already in it, so both ordering and food repo are techto. Not bad ...
Oversized rock oyster (price 650 yen)
Anyway, it's big! But not only that, there are two oysters! Lemon sourness and milky oyster extract ... I'm dying.
Ankimo ponzu (price 400 yen)
The rich and sticky taste goes well with sake ...
Yellowtail sashimi (price 400 yen)
In Kansai, it is definitely higher than this even in supermarkets. Please be aware that this is not the standard price in Akita ...
After eating these three items, the second of the three types of sake! This time, instead of choosing it myself, I asked the shop staff to choose it. I ordered 3 types of "habitual sake" from my sister. My sister chose three types of "sour sake" ...
These three types are purely sour! You can enjoy the difference in individuality between some sake, strong sweet sake, and slightly carbonated sake. One of the three is from Akita prefecture, and the sense of choice of sake is perfect.
Potato salad (price 250 yen)
Potato salad served like a mountain on a small plate. The seasoning is a little sweet, and it is a gentle taste that children may like. It's more profitable than the side dishes you buy at the supermarket.
Deep-fried chicken (price 400 yen)
Six fried golf ball-sized thighs. The pickled sauce soaks into the meat and is juicy.
Boiled kinkin (price 550 yen)
Let's say it again and again. This one is only 550 yen. To be honest, I can't think of a store in Kansai that has such a high cost performance. A combination of simmered sweet and spicy fish and sake ... This is already one of the staples.
Curry rice: A slightly spicy house curry on a plate after swallowing
Eiraku Shokudo is a izakaya but also offers food menus such as fried rice and ramen. Is it a remnant of the old lunch business? It seems that there are quite a few customers who order one item as a 〆 after swallowing.
I will follow suit and order one item at the end. The curry rice (price 600 yen) that the neighbor asked for and was interested in ...
The volume is about the same as the curry that is usually served at a set meal shop. It may be a little tough as a 〆 after eating and drinking. A home curry system that reminds you of your home. It's a little spicy, but if your tongue is desensitized by alcohol, people who don't like spicy food will be able to eat it.
Reservation is required as it is a very popular restaurant ... Access to Eiraku Shokudo is a 5-minute walk from the nearest station, JR Ou Main Line / Akita Station.
This time I was lucky enough to enter without reservation, but it is still a very popular restaurant, so advance reservation is highly recommended.
