Buta no kakuni

Hanare Jan 26, 2014 01:02 AM

I realise that Buta no kakuni is typically a home cooked dish,but can anyone recommend an Izakaya in Tokyo which excels in this dish?

    There are so many places that serve it and do a great job. You might ask at the places you normally go to. It's a dish that requires a lot of time, and not a lot of skill. I would start by going to an Okinawan izakaya.

      Thanks Tripeler.On my last trip I did have it at Nihonbashi Yukari.It was quite good,but I am sure it can be better.Any particular Okinawan izakaya ?

      Tama in Marunouchi (03-3213-2277) does a nice Okinawan version of the dish. By the way, in Okinawan cuisine it's called rafti and it's usually made with awamori rather than sake.

      But as Tripeler says, it's a really common dish at izakaya - I'm sure it's served at thousands of places.

          On my next trip I'm planning to try the rafute at Sokka Bokka in Nakameguro, mostly because it was featured in an episode of Kodoku no gurume.
