    HI Reiko!
    Thanks for reading my blog! Yes, the food at Takahashi-san is delicious!

    I love this concept of pairing seasonal vegetables cooked in this fashion with wine. The brussel sprouts had a smidgen of something on top. Soy sauce or balsamic vinegar? I usually dress them with balsamic after grilling too but never thought of them as accompaniment for wine.

    Need to open a place like this too in Tokyo with some extended concept pairing wholesome foods with wines under $25 US.

    Wow, I just read the reservation recommended now. Amazing for a place like yatai!

    Yes, reservations recommended. Though Takahashi-san is a “yatai” it is not outside or mobile. The enclosed space is called a yatai mura, a “village of yatai” so it’s actually more like an undisciplined food court.
    The joint is packed nightly.

    The brussel sprouts had a touch of shoyu, I believe. Actually, several vegetable/wine venues have sprouted up around the city. I’ll be revisiting some of them soon.

    I spent a whole year as an exchange student in Kyoto Japan, and I have to say I probably wouldnt have gotten by if it wasnt for a cheap bowl of udon a few times a week! There is even one shop where you can eat for free if you do 30 minutes of washing after! Anyway, I found a load more tasty looking ideas at this udon recipe site.
