[Tokyo] New Motsuyoshi (立ち飲み居酒屋 ニューもつよし 門前仲町):  Monzen-Nakacho’s Standing Izakaya – Affordably Flavorful Innards Stew (Motsu-Ni)


New Motsuyoshi: Monzen-Nakacho’s Standing-Style Izakaya Experience

At the heart of Monzen-Nakacho, you’ll discover New Motsuyoshi—an acclaimed izakaya celebrated for its motsuyaki (grilled offal) and tantalizing simmered delights. Nestled at the intersection of Tatsumi Shindo, a lively alleyway dotted with bars and eateries, this hidden gem beckons just a minute’s stroll from the bustling Monzen-Nakacho Station.


Established in 2011, New Motsuyoshi boasts a distinctive standing-style ambiance where motsuyaki and offal dishes take center stage. Its vibrant yellow signboard serves as a beacon, marking it as a favored standing tavern in the community. The unique upfront ticketing system, reminiscent of ramen joints, enhances the overall experience, requiring patrons to choose their drinks and dishes in advance.


The simmered delights, particularly the ‘motsu-ni,’ showcase a sumptuously thick consistency, harmonizing seamlessly with a selection of alcoholic beverages. Enter the realm of ‘Baisu Sour,’ a ubiquitous drink in motsuyaki and standing taverns—a delightful blend of diluted shochu, embodying a sweet and sour symphony. Despite its name, ‘Baisu Sour’ is intricately composed of red shiso and apple juice extracts, crafting a truly unique mixer.


New Motsuyoshi attracts not just offal enthusiasts but also discerning connoisseurs. For those seeking the ultimate encounter with grilled offal and simmered masterpieces, a pilgrimage to New Motsuyoshi promises a culinary adventure like no other.
