Craft! Kunita-Chika – Tokyo Beer Drinker


Right this moment, half three of the good Chuo line catch-up-with-places-I-haven’t-visited-that-have-been-open-for-ages pub crawl. I don’t know why, however this place has all the time sort of intrigued me. I feel it may need one thing to do with the pun within the title, which precisely portrays the truth that the place is each in Kunitachi and within the basement. In including one of many earlier locations on this crawl, I seen that I had been barely dismissive of Craft Kunita-chika on the digest put up entry. Now that is up, that remark has been consigned to the bin, so no want for me to fret about feeling like I’d been a bit imply. It wasn’t actually very imply in any respect, however I do prefer to attempt to be optimistic if I can. Anyway, right here’s what it’s good to know:

  • Situated within the basement of the Seiyu grocery store, surprisingly near the Sekiya beer store which now has a sort of hybrid growler filling / standing bar place. The just lately up to date put up about that place could be learn right here. You will get in to Kunita-Chika both by taking the raise all the way down to the basement or by taking place the steps in Sekiya and thru the store. Bit larger than I assumed it might be, with a few counters for possibly 10-15 in complete and fairly a number of tables too. I actually loved the vibes of the ‘Good Beer, Good Time, Good Meet’ which was painted on the wall and I’m not saying that to be sarky about the usage of English. It did really feel like a spot which was someplace folks go to have a pleasant time.
  • Seven faucets of Japanese craft with an emphasis on native stuff, though a few Niigata brewed beers crept in. The wall decorations additionally function a Tokyo brewery map and I feel that’s the final idea right here with round half of the faucets being beers brewed in west Tokyo. Beers served in two sizes S (250ml) and M (450ml). Costs ranged from ¥680-¥908 for the S and ¥998-¥1489 for the M. In addition they had a beer flight of no matter three beers you fancy for ¥1780. Unsure what the sizes are although.
  • Plenty of meals out there. Google describes this place as an Izakaya and I can sort of see why because it’s undoubtedly an consuming and ingesting place. Though saying that, I’m positive it’s positive to only go and drink if you need. I had a very nice dish of chilly vinegar tomatoes. Guess that doesn’t sound as good whenever you write it in English, however I’ve been serious about recreating it since I ate the final forkful. Very good! Couldn’t discover WiFi. They solely have daytime opening on Sunday, (which in all probability makes Saturday really feel slightly unhappy). There was no cowl cost!

I’ve to say the tomatoes made it for me right here. The beer choice won’t be the most effective for everybody. I like the truth that they focus considerably on native breweries, however on the identical time, a few of these breweries are ones that I are inclined to keep away from on taplists in different bars… On the prime finish, the costs aren’t the most cost effective both. However I ought to stress that the employees have been very nice and I had a pleasant time right here. Typically the most cost effective locations with essentially the most faucets aren’t essentially the most enjoyable. Typically they’re, however there’s undoubtedly a spot for bars like this which have a pleasant native really feel. Unsure after I would possibly return. But when/after they reopen the Uncommon data store in Kunitachi, or after I’m passing, I’ll in all probability pop in for a fast beer and a few extra tomatoes.
