Japanese: Shoya

A stone’s throw from the Hofbräuhaus, Shoya is a small storefront room connecting to a well-designed second-story restaurant. The menu is enormous and has the benefit of photos, if you are not so sure about your selections. Start with the Edamame (€ 4.50), which are boiled soybeans served in the pod. Shoya serves them warm, so specify if you’d prefer them cold. Other appetizers include Horenso Gomaae (€ 4.80), spinach with ground sesame sauce, a specialty of the house, and Gyoza (€ 5.80), commonly called pork dumplings, which are a tasty and well-seasoned treat. Nigiri sushi fans will enjoy both the Maguro (tuna, € 2.50 per piece) and Sake (salmon, € 2.50 per piece). If you or you dinner partner are just beginning sushi exploration and not ready to jump into the raw waters, order the Unagi (€ 3.50), which is cooked eel served with a sweet sauce or the Ebi (€ 3), cooked shrimp. Lunchtime Bento boxes (€ 12.80–14.80) are a complete meal with teriyaki meat or fish, vegetable, rice, salad, fruit and miso soup.
