Maruchiba<br />丸千葉

Maruchiba
丸千葉

 One the greatest inexpensive izakaya is Maruchiba located at Minami Senju. &nbsp;In the past it was easy to get a seat but now even at opening time 2pm people are waiting outside and you better make a reservation to secure a seat. &nbsp;Of course, the food is great but the owner Yat-chan's talk is even better. &nbsp;If possible, get a seat at the counter and enjoy communicating with him.  南千住にある「丸千葉」は、大衆酒場の最高峰だと思う。以前はいついっても入れたものだが、今は人気店になり、2時にオープンには並んでいるし、予約必須。料理はすばらしいが、やっちゃんのトークがまた素晴らしい。できれば、コの字カウンターで味わって欲しい。

 Everyone might have a favorite drink when dining at an izakaya, but I love ordering a bottle of Kinmiya shochu and mixing it with cold green tea. &nbsp;Ask for a marker pen and write your name on the bottle so when you come next time, they will remember you and put your bottle right in front of you.  酒はもちろんそれぞれの好みだろうが、キンミヤをキープして緑茶で割るのが、大好き。キンミヤにはしおいマジックで名前を書いておけば、次来た時には、即座に(何も言わなくても)出してくれる。

 As an inexpensive izakaya, the menu is all over the wall. &nbsp;Regulars order boiled pigs feet and eat it slowly but drinking heavily. &nbsp;Sashimi is great so start your meal by ordering a Santenmori (3 assorted sashimi) and you won't go wrong.  大衆居酒屋らしく。所狭しとメニューが並ぶ。常連さんは「とんそく」を頼んで、ちびちび食べている。もちろん魚が美味しく、三点盛りから始めると、ハズレがない。

 King of inexpensive izakaya food, Potesara (potato salad) is amazing. &nbsp;There is even macaroni salad next to it and the portions are huge. &nbsp;An orthodox mayo taste which is so comforting.  もちろん大衆居酒屋の王「ポテサラ」も凄い。これでもかという量。マカロニサラダも添えてあり、お祭り騒ぎ。味も、オーソドックスなマヨネーズでほっとする。

 One of their specials are deep fried food. &nbsp;Hamukatsu (ham cutlet), tonkatsu, ajifurai (horse mackerel cutlet) or any other deep fried dish is just delicious. &nbsp;And on Saturday, they have Jumbo Menchi (minced meat cutlet) which makes you smile after a bite,  もちろん魚もおいしいが、特筆すべきは「揚げ物」だと思う。ハムカツもとんかつも、アジフライも、何もかもうまい。自家製ヂャンボメンチも嬉しいお味。

 Drink slowly, talk to your friend or partner, and sometimes talk to Yat-chan. &nbsp;Whatever you order the food is delicious. &nbsp;Towards the end of the meal, I always order Hanbahgu (hamburg steak) and Tonjiru (pork &amp; vegetable miso soup),&nbsp;which makes me completely full.  お酒をちびちび飲みながら、ゆっくり話をして、たまにカウンターの中の「やっちゃん」と話す。料理はどれもおいしい。僕はいつも、最後の方に、ハンバーグととん汁を頼み、腹いっぱいになってしまう。
