Robata Musashi is located at a 2-minute walk from the Shimbashi Station. The place is so popular for its grilled fish, stews, grilled vegetable and meat skewers, salads, and stews! It's a place that really offers you the opportunity of trying true Japanese soul foods. It has a super nice warm izakaya atmosphere where you sit in close proximity to other customers.
"Robata" means by the fireside. In this izakaya, if you sit at one of the counter seats, you'll get to see the kitchen master grill whatever you ordered right in front of you. Seeing this makes the experience all the more interesting.
His grilling space is surrounded by all the ingredients necessary to make the dishes on the menu. It's quite impressive to see him operate so efficiently.
And the service is made with the help of a pole with a flat end on which the dishes are placed.
Surprisingly, most of the menu items are just 278 yen, which adds up to 300 yen when the taxes are added.
Squid, stews, vegetable plates: all 300 yen!
Various types of skewers for the same low price.
A whole Pacific herring grilled to perfection with some grated daikon. Can you believe this is 300 yen?!
Other items are more than 300 yen but not by much. This huge piece of Atka mackerel is only 500 yen!
A fall sashimi plate for just 500 yen.
Most of the drinks are 300 to 320 yen. Beer is 430 yen. You can try some of the sake and shochu (Japanese spirit) the izakaya is particular about. Traditional drinks go particularly well with fish.
For an authentic izakaya experience, you should most definitely try out Robata Musashi! Order plenty and your bill probably won't even reach 2,000 yen per person.
