“Cosy family restaurant”
This reminds me of mom’s cooking restaurant. The restaurant is small but cosy. We chanced upon this restaurant during our 3 day stay at Aomori near the station. Only discovered how famous it is after eating here. There is always a long queue here whenever we passed the restaurant. Their popular dish... are scallops. We had butter scallops served in half shelf which are quite tasty. Price is not expensive but not cheap considering we bought very fresh kaisen don at 1 of the supermarket at Aomori station which are a lot cheaper and also very fresh. In our opinion, this place is over hyped but definitely worth a try. There are mainly tourists patrons here.

“No frills Scallop Dinner”
No fancy place, actually the food has some homestyle-feel to it. They‘re not on display outside, but ask for the grilled scallops. They have a pictured menu in case you can‘t read the Japanese one. The prices are moderate - if you go for raw seafood on rice (“**-don”) you’ll typically end up somewhe...re between 1,200 and 1,650円, a recommended set with grilled scallops, scallop sashimi, miso soup, rice and some other sides was 2,470円. Good quality for the money!

“Scallops Combination Dinner”
Had a dinner here around 5 PM while the restaurant still had vacant seats on Monday evening. Scallops Combination Dinner provides sashimi and butter-baked scallops - oh, they are fresh, hearty flavored and sweet. Very popular for both locals and visitors, people were lined up to the sidewalk for t...heir turns to seat and dine, by the time I left the restaurant around 5:40 PM. Average interior décor. Not spacious in terms of dining space.

“Reasonable price, friendly atmosphere fresh hotate”
We visited the restaurant for 2 consecutive nights. The food is fresh and dinner set was great. Both cooked and fresh scallop was tasty. The grill scallop is a bit salty for us but to have with beer it is fine. Fried fish is also not to miss. Overall experience is great with reasonable price.
