Yes, this is the place Big Bird and I failed to enter previously because we arrived on a random closure day ("We will humbly take and honorable holiday on this day.") Fortunately we had had a late lunch, and thus after a short walk and brief train ride were able to arrive right before the 4 PM opening.
Koumibaisen, which is really good for instant coffee.)
Still a mystery to me how this place came to be. Did dad start with this purity of concept, "I shall craft a standing bar from the best ingredients," or did he set out to take over the kappo world and gradually downscale his ambitions to a standing format? Still, with the extraordinarily low overhead and high prices, this place must an absolute mint.
But we'll have to keep wondering, on all counts.
