Try oden at a reasonable price
One day we will get to Hakkei, especially after reading the review and comments over at
`ono kine grindz. In the meantime, we enjoyed our oden at Jimbo, a very popular udon restaurant on S. King Street. Oden is available there at reasonable prices: $9.80 for oden alone, or $13.90 for an oden teishoku (set course). These are available for dinner only, Thursday through Saturday evenings. The picture is the oden teishoku. In the white bowl is a little bit of mustard.
Oden is comfort food for us. It is available in Japan at very reasonable cost at street stands and tiny little eating places of all sorts, and since we left Japan, at convenience stores. On a cold night it's easy to find a tiny place to wedge into (thereby helping to keep warm) and choose little boiling things to have out of the large bowl of broth. As items are taken out for you, new ones are put in, and the whole thing keeps going all evening. Besides the tight crowd of customers and the simmering broth, the hot sake helps keep away the chill and livens up the conversation.
Staggering home afterwards, one is oblivious to the cold wind and rain.
