“Squid frown” uses squid to serve a variety of dishes such as sashimi, steamed rice, and sundae. The signature menu, “Mountain Squid,” draws attention with the visuals of each part, from the head to the body and legs of the squid, cut using the shape of each part. The moderately thick mountain squid is appealing for its mild sweetness and crunchy texture. “Deep-fried ink,” which has a savory flavor with ink and cheese, is also a great place to enjoy.

▲Opening hours: 18:00 — 02:00 every day, closed on Sundays
