¥100 per piece! Gentaro Shoten's famous 'doteni'!

Doteni (egg, beef tendon, daikon) (¥100/piece)
Gentaro Shoten's specialty is 'doteni' a stew of various ingredients that has been braised until turning a black color. This doteni combines the salty flavor of miso with the mellow, sweet flavor of sake lees (leftovers from sake production) to create a delicious, balanced flavor. The rich, umami flavor that results is a wonderful complement to a cup of sake.

One bite will keep the sake flowing like a river! Excellent 'otsumami'

'pickled firefly squid'(left) and 'crystalized plums'(right) (¥300 each)
Indispensible when drinking sake, Gentaro Shoten has some great 'otsumami' in its lineup. The The richness and umami of the 'firefly squid' spreads throughout your mouth as you chew, and the enjoyably crunchy texture of the crystallized plums is outstanding. These make for fantastic accompaniments to the sake.
The sourness and umami of these dishes goes wonderfully with the slight sweetness of sakes such as the 'kawatsuru (川鶴).'

Cream cheese × tamari soy sauce also make for fantastic Japanese-flavored otsumami

'Cream cheese pickled in tamari soy sauce' (¥300)
This dish combines mild-tasting cream cheese with a delicious soy sauce.
Cheese and soy sauce both being fermented, this is unsurprisingly a great combo!
The fragrant scent, smooth texture, and perfect amount of saltiness make this another solid otsumami option to go with your sake.

The 'Octopus Wieners' are reminiscent of a bento box

'Octopus Wieners' (¥300)
The 'Octopus Wieners' served here are reminiscent of the bento boxes that most Japanese people grew up taking to school. The saltiness of these 'otsumami' is a great complement to the rice flavors found in sake, and are a cute little snack that could even turn into a conversation-starter!

Sake isn't the only kind of drink you can enjoy at 'Gentaro Shoten'

'kinmiya' shochu bottle (¥1,000)
