I was a fan of Beer Kobo in Nishiogi and visited often. I was sad to discover it had closed a few months ago. Craving their wonderful fish and chips I decided to give their Ogikubo shop a try. It was very disappointing.
As a positive I tried the sunny strong beer and it was good. My friend tried two other beers and enjoyed both.
The fish and chips was very disappointing. While the Nishiogi shop served two large pieces of lightly fried fish and chips in a basket,in Ogikubo the serving was two tiny pieces of greasy fish served in a small tin on top of the fries. Not good. We decided not to stay and left to find a better place for dinner
While the Nishiogi Beer Kobo was big and bright with a large terrace and friendly staff, the Ogikubo venue was small and stuffy and not especially welcoming. There is also no signage in English outside so it was difficult to identify
Very disappointing and I won’t return.
