Fodor's Expert Review Itamae no Mise Takeya
$$ Sado Island (Sado-ga-shima) Casual
In business for more than half a century, this small restaurant in Aikawa specializes in seafood, with excellent sashimi and simmered dishes, but also a local favorite called ikagoro; squid (innards and all) mixed with sliced onions, mushrooms, and miso paste, before being sauteed. If you are staying without a meal plan at the Hotel Mancho or Hotel Oosado, both just down the coast from Aikawa, this is a good value option for a local dinner.
