... to get some tempura as well, as I hadn't had any yet. My main course was a chewy noodle soup with bear meat. Or that's at least what they said it was. It cost a staggering 3100 yen and the dish as a whole underwhelming. The meat didn't taste exotic at all, and it was somewhat tough. The tempura was better, came with rice, and was 1300 yen.
