A Japanese-style izakaya hidden in the alley behind Observatoire station(Line 3), the small storefront is covered with blue curtains. You can only rely on the handwritten sign on the front door. The restaurant has only indoor seating, and the innermost space is a small open kitchen.
The layout inside is very simple, with wooden tables and chairs and a dark wall with the name of the restaurant, Kōyō, written on it. Kōyō izakaya has a variety of skewers, so-called “Yaki” in Japanese. We suggest you try the fried chicken skin! This is a very common izakaya dish, and the aroma and fat of the chicken skin are perfect when accompanied by a beer. Also, don’t miss their shio ramen, a light soup in which you can identify the original taste of all the ingredients.
