Hantei Nezu Honten

By Weekender Editor

Originally located in Ueno, kushiage restaurant Hantei Nezu Honten relocated to the Nezu area in 1978. Since then it has been serving mouthwatering deep-fried skewers of vegetables and meat in a traditional home hailing from the Meiji Period (1868-1912). The house is a rarity — it’s a three-story structure that boasts official cultural heritage certification. — and with good reason: the building miraculously survived the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake, the firebombing of Tokyo during WWII, and avoided demolition by hungry developers after that.

Hantei exudes a relaxing atmosphere typical of old traditional homes and boasts an excellent view of the shitamachi streets surrounding it from the second and third floors. Given its spacious interior — including a storehouse inside the main building — it’s perfect for large parties as well as more intimate date nights.
