Izakaya Hinoe

Izakaya Hinoe, located next to Union on Convention Center Road, is a great place to drop by for a few drinks and a meal with some of your friends. Hinoe opened its doors for business in October and has done quite well ever since. When the establishment first started operating, it was smaller than it is now, but the owner decided to expand and added more space. Now, Hinoe is a very large and spacious izakaya, and its wooden tables, pillars and stone walls give off a very natural and comfortable feel.

Hinoe’s staff claims they always try to serve good meals to their customers, and our dinner at the izakaya was definitely delicious and beautifully prepared. The cooks use the freshest meats and vegetables in their creations. Some of the most popular meals include wakadori no tomato ni (chicken with tomato sauce, ¥580), abogado to ebi no yoguruto (avocado with shrimp and yogurt, ¥650), sakana to kinoko no uniyaki (fish, mushrooms, and sea urchin over noodles, ¥650), and speya ribu (spare rib, ¥580). However, they also have a variety of pizza and pasta as well as fresh sashimi. In addition, there’s a good selection of draft and bottled beer, wine, awamori, cocktails and soft drinks.

All menus at Hinoe are written in Japanese, and the staff doesn’t speak much English, so bring a local friend with you when you drop by. Also, if you decide to visit over the weekend, it is best to make reservations as they usually have a full house. Hinoe is open from 5:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday, with the last order at 11:30 p.m., and on Fridays and Saturdays from 5:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. with last order at 12:30 a.m. To make reservations, call 098-898-7323. Finally, Hinoe does not accept dollars, so be sure to bring yen.
