Ninniku-Ya Garlic Restaurant - CLOSED

This is one of those restaurants where you have to try but you don't end up going back a second time. All their dishes have garlic but the garlic flavor is not super strong like Stinking Rose in San Francisco. My favorite item was the garlic cheese bread. I think steak is their popular item because everyone around was eating that. I wasn't a big fan of the garlic ice cream but I thought it was interesting. The first taste is weird but as you keep eating it, you get used to it. My tip is to not drink water while you eat the garlic ice cream because it washes everything off your tongue and then you get the weird garlic taste in your mouth again (like the first taste).

I highly recommend making reservations. Their space is small. It's a house that got converted into a restaurant. There's 3 tables outside and maybe 4-5 tables inside. The lighting is dim so go early and catch some daylight if you want to be able to read the menu.
