Situated in the old downtown of Nagoya, Osu, Tonchanya Fuji is a popular yakiniku (grilled meat) restaurant where locals come regularly. The most famous dish of the restaurant is, as you can see from the name of the restaurant, "Tonchan". Tonchan is a typical local food of Nagoya. Pork hormone (gizzards) is grilled after covered in red miso from Aichi. Grilled tonchan, covered with sweet and spicy red miso, is chewy and smells great of miso. Everyday, there are people lining up in front of the restaurant to have it. Although you need to wait to get into the restaurant, you can't help but wait as you smell the great smell of grilled meat when you walk in front of the restaurant!

Only fresh ingredients are selected
Only fresh pork, including hormone, is used for grill. As a result, you can taste the great quality pork that tastes sweet and with no smell! As fatty pork meat will loose their fat when it is grilled, it is not heavy on the stomach. Therefore, conscious women would also enjoy it.
Simple meat with salt is popular!
"Tonchan" （250 yen） is the most recommended dish on the menu. Meat is chewy and smells great. On top of that, in addition to the typical miso taste tonchan, you can also taste simple salt tastes tonchan in this restaurant. I recommend you to compare two different tastes with a glass of beer on your hand.
For those who don't like hormone
"Sagari" is also a very popular dish! It contains the diaphragm of pig which is very rare part; only 300g can be retrieved from one pig. Slightly fatty, tender and juicy, "Sagari" is the most healthy part of pork. Since it is easy to eat, I recommend it for those who don't like gizzards.
