Today, I visited “Maruka”. It is located around 5～6 minute walk from east outlet of Ikebukuro station. It looked like an expensive restaurant from outside appearance, but the price of dishes on a menu of an outside signboard was quite reasonable.
A mixed tempura included onions, carrots, shrimps and welsh onions, and was very crispy. Sweetness of onions was impressive with good combination with a dip. The dip was sweet and reasonably salty. I could put all of mixed tempura and soba into a dip from the beginning to the end. You could enjoy changes through good texture of welsh onions and shimeji
There were a variety of sakes and dishes (which went well with alcohol) on a menu, so I would like to come here at dinner time next time.
