I apologize for not perusing the board more thoroughly before posting. I'm in a little time constraint here so if you could quickly tell me what are the must-order dishes at Musha, that'll be great. Much appreciated.

      My absolute musts are the kakuni (pork belly), the cheese tofu, and the kabocha croquettes. If I'm there with a bigger group, I also love the spicy tuna dip, asari (garlic clams), the ebimayo and the green been salad. You really have to get the the first three things, though.

        I've only been there once and it was a few years ago but out of the five or six dishes we tried, my friend and I agreed the fried chicken was the best.

          I always get the risotto finished off in the cheese wheel.

            I love the marinated mackerel that is seared at the table, the pork belly and the parmesan risotto.

              Since no one else mentioned it yet, allow me to add the scallop dumplings to the list.

                Another vote for marinated mackerel. So tasty and juicy.

                  Ditto on the mackerel seared tableside and the pork belly.
