Best Nabe in Tokyo: Setouchi Suigun
Setouchi Suigun provides pirate-themed cuisine with fish shipped fresh from the Seto Inland Sea, which was terrorized by various pirate groups—or suigun—during the Warring States period.
The nabe was traditionally eaten before battle, its octopus ensuring victory over enemies on all sides. Or warm your shivered timbers by the fireplace as you scarf a whole sea bream with rice.
