Japanese home-style cooking in authentic atmosphere

"Already for a while I am sitting in this small but comfortable guestroom. I am eating delicious Japanese plain fare and drinking Kirin draft beer. After a while, I am gazing out of the window and realize that there is a car with a German license plate parked outside. That moment, I remember that I am actually in Munich and not in Tokyo."

True story and anyone who experienced something similar has most probably been to the J-Bar before. The J-Bar is a small bar, snack bar or restaurant, depending on the definition. It is located close the metro station Goetheplatz.

The J-Bar serves Japanese home-style food. This seems to be extremely authentic since the Japanese guests keep telling you that they feel like home once they enter the bar. The menu is relatively small but the prices and the quality are very good. Additionally, there is a daily menu on which you can find delicacies like shabu shabu, depending on the day. The standard menu consists of different starters (5 Euro each) and several main dishes (starting from 10 Euro) that come with rice and miso soup. (last checked: March 09, 2011)

If you prefer a slow start with authentic Japanese food, we can recommend the Gyoza for starters. On the menu, they are called “Teigtasche” and you will get a couple of dumplings in salad, bean sprouts and sauce. In general, the German translations for the Japanese dishes are rather concise. Thus, it is sometimes wise to ask the staff for explanations.

Very nice stews and soups (but quite pricy at 16€ for a bowl). Changed their menu recently, now less dishes (less salads and less soup styles). Charming service but most waitresses don't really speak German which sometimes can be difficult ^_^ Very small place, reservation recommended.

I was twice there and it's a very good authentic Japanese cozy restaurant. I go there once a year for ISPO. The best Japanese restaurant in Munich. Best in cost/quality ratio.
