15 Holywell Street, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX1 3SA
Find this popular Japanese eaterie in the centre of the city, just opposite New College.

Named after the now trendy baby-soy-bean vegetable (pronounced “eh-dah-mah-meh”), the restaurant, also offering a take away service offers what it calls Japanese home cooking. The form being that no reservations are taken and you pay when you order.

Lunch mainly brings one-course dishes – such as 'Samon Teri Teishotu' (salmon fillets marinated then poached in teriyaki sauce with rice & misu soup). Friday & Saturday dinner a more extensive selection of dishes designed to be shared.

Fish options might include 'Ikanoshogayaki' (squid pieces marinated in soy & ginger, then stir-fried) and 'Satsumaage' (a selection of pan-fried fish cakes with sweet chili dipping sauce).

Meat perhaps 'Shogayaki' (stir-fried strips of pork, marinated in soy & ginger). Vegetable mains maybe 'Amaitamagoyaki' (omelette with soy & sweetened wine seasoning).

Thursday evenings are devoted entirely to Sushi'Sashimi listings.

They have taken effort to source free-range produce, and the restaurant is deservedly popular, the trick being not to arrive at peak meal times to avoid disappointment or at least a lengthy wait.
