Stamina Katsu Teishoku (Pork Cutlet Set): 990 JPY (Tax Excluded)
This dish is offered on a first-come first-served basis. Looks like a pork cutlet, but tastes and smells like Japanese dumplings. Since it is difficult to store for a long time, they prepare it for the day in the morning. The cutlet is made from a mixture of shredded cabbage, garlic chives, and minced pork. After shaping, wrapping with fat back slices, and coating with bread crumbs, they deep fry the shaped meat mixture. Break it with chopsticks and enjoy the crispy outside along with the juicy meat inside. Make your own dip sauce with vinegar, soy sauce, and chili oil just like Japanese dumplings. Many repeat customers visit for this dish because of the pristine umami taste of ingredients created by using its own residual heat to avoid over cooking.
Sumi-Shubo Kibunya Konosuke (Izakaya Restaurant)
Delightful Dishes Cooked by a Charcoal Grill Iron Chef with Deep Knowledge of Ingredients

Their ramen noodles and lunch meals that include only Friday’s Oyako-don (chicken and egg over rice) are popular too. They change their menu depending on what they get. So just visit and see what you will get. Also, their sweet stuff such as Crème Brulee and French Toast are amazing. Lots of quality eggs are used for them. If something appeals to you at this place, just go for it!
Tori no Sumi-yaki (Charcoal Grilled Chicken cooked on teppanyaki griddle): 580JPY (Tax Excluded)
When you visit Konosuke, make sure to order this one. The chicken chunks are charcoal grilled on high heat, so they are cooked from inside by infrared rays, which makes perfect crispy outside and hot juicy inside.
Since it is served on a skillet, your food should be kept hot until you finish eating. Aromatic smoke and smell of charcoal can be a great part of this dish. Once you bite the nice chewy chicken, you will know its wild umami taste that is different from the deliciousness of yakitori. Tastes excellent as it is, but great with yuzu kosho (paste seasoning made from citrus yuzu pepper salt). Hope you will enjoy and share the freshly grilled hot chicken with friends!
Tonkotsu Miso Ramen Butaboshi
New Item Has Been Added This Winter! You Won’t Ever Overlook the Meat.
This is a specialty restaurant of Tonkotsu Miso Ramen and Tsukemen※1. Their noodles are made by being inspired by the soup noodles of “Jiro”※2. As they follow its style, even their namimori (standard size) is served topped with a mountain of veggies, and ordering toppings is said to sound like some kind of spell. Their flat nice chewy Gyaku-giri noodles※3 catch the rich soup very well. The tasty pork bone-based soup is made from their “homemade awase miso” that is a mixture of aka-miso※4 and shiro-miso※5and pork bone broth created for the mixed miso seasoning. Flip over the veggies and noodles, which is called “Tenchi-gaeshi”, and keep it delicious without making noodles soggy until you finish your meal.
※1. Pork bone-based miso soup ramen noodles and dipping noodles
※2. A legendary ramen shop in Tokyo
※3. Noodles made by thinly cutting thicker flatten noodle dough than normal one
※4. Reddish(dark) brown miso, which is fermented for a longer period than shiro-miso. Contains more salt but has more flavor. Popular in Tohoku area.
※5. Pale-colored miso. Fermented for a shorter period than aka-miso. Tastes mild and less salty.
Butamashi N’ Nikumiso Gachi-mori Miso Ramen: 980 JPY (Tax Excluded)
Two slices of about 2 cm thick Chashu (roast pork) are topped on this noodle soup. These thick pork slices have a strong presence as well as the veggie mountain, and tons of slightly chili-hot Nikumiso (fried ground meat seasoned with miso) is topped over them.
The thick noodles catch the creamy sweet and chili-hot soup very well, and give you a stronger flavor of flour than that of thin noodles which are light and easy to eat.
The sweetness of veggies goes very well with the chili hot flavor of Nikumiso and soup. Also, crumbly tender chashu brings out the goodness of nice chewy noodles in a different way from nikumiso. This one is so much value for money, and it’s better than ordering extra toppings on their standard miso ramen.

4,400 JPY (Tax included) for 1 person
Hot pot is replaceable to Tom Yum Goong with extra 500 JPY.
Tom Yum Goong ↓
“Thai Suki” is Thailand’s original hot pot invented by being inspired from Japanese hot pot dishes, such as Shabushabu and Sukiyaki. Bring the chicken broth soup in the pot into boil, and gently put a slice of meat dipped in a beaten egg in advance into the soup.
You don’t want to spoil the egg coating, so don’t dunk it into the soup like when you do for Japanese shabushabu. Pour the hot pot sauce in a small bowl and add the same amount of soup. Now you can start eating Thai Suki in the same way as when eating sukiyaki.
For SHIME (final dish), add rice or pho.

This one tastes mild and easy to eat, which is perfect for those who are not familiar with chili-hot South Asian food. The sauce made from oyster sauce, chili sauce, tamarind, etc. is sour and sweet. Even after boiling at high heat, the meat slices are tender and shrimps keep their nice crunchy texture. It warms up every part of your body including finger tips.
Tom Yum Goong no Aka Soup (Tom Yum Goong Red Soup)
The chili-hot soup would make you addicted. This is the taste for grown-ups! Crush the shrimp’s head first to squeeze out the guts, and put it in the hot soup horizontally from its tail so that the soup gets richer. After the shrimp broth is extracted, add other ingredients into the pot. (Remove the shrimp when it is cooked.)
Tastes hot and sweet, and the refreshing flavor of lemongrass, bai makrut (kaffir lime leaves), and pakchee (fresh coriander) would give you a great feeling of exotic Asian breeze.
