Great little Izakaya in funky part of Eugene. Eat at the bar for best atmosphere. The udon curry is a must.

We had dinner somewhere else and walk along the street and found this place, looked very charming from outside. So we decide to have few drinks here. Their signature drinks also interesting, dont miss out :)
