Canada Tei is a Japanese izakaya with tasty local dishes, great service, and a comprehensive English menu. Shige (shee-geh) the friendly owner speaks English and is happy to make recommendations like sukiyaki, nabe, or “salted squid guts”. You’ve got to try their okonomiyaki, and make sure you ask about their daily specials, last time I was there they had excellent tuna and salmon sashimi. They carry a good selection of Japanese nihonshu (sake) and shochu, and of course have beer on tap. Canada Tei is a 5 minute walk from, or a 10 minute stumble back to, Lodge tabi-tabi. You can also find it on our recommendation map here.
