Old-House Eatery & Japanese-style Pub & Café Mochidaya

Enjoy fresh seafood in the ambience of the Showa times

Mochidaya is a restaurant directly run by the adjacent Mochida Fishmonger. It boasts menu items which emphasize the seasonal flavours, changing depending on the seafood available for that specific season. "Kaisendon", which is a bowl of rice with a dozen fresh seafood toppings, is the highlight during lunch hours. Mochidaya also serves an ample selection of sweet delights, including home-baked pancakes made from 100% Sado-grown rice powder. In the evening, it turns into a Japanese-style pub serving alcoholic drinks to accompany your food, where you can leisurely enjoy local Japanese sake and cocktails in the old Japanese-style house built sixty years ago.
