Still looking for a lunch place for this snow covered, yet slightly sunny day? Hashi Izakaya might meet your hopes for a warming yet enlivening dish, like the Udon soup pictured above in the veggie version. Although I heard, that the beef version’s broth is a lot heartier, the fresh noodles and vegetables make a great and healthy lunch option in this Japanese place just below a gym in this rather weird corner building.
Some might also call their interior rather weird, especially their ceiling decoration with innumerous chopsticks hanging down in a wave structure. I (yet again) heard, it makes some people dizzy just looking at it.
While the name Izakaya actually and literally means a “place to sit and drink sake”, there’s no need to booze up here, the focus is definitely on the food with an extensive menu of bigger and smaller Japanese dishes (see the menu here), that are best ordered in a group. (And to close this small Japanese lection, Hashi means chopsticks.)
My highlight at lunch time is their green tea ice, although I’ve had better ones in Berlin, this one is still ranging pretty high on my list and closing a lunch with ice cream before heading back to the office, what’s to say against that?
