#88 Nomihoudai

If there was one thing I wish I could bring back to England, it would probably be ‘nomihoudai’, aka. ‘drink-as-much-as-you-want’.

Gone would be the days of pre-drinking disgusting concoctions before going out into the cold night, stumbling into taxis to overpriced bars and clubs and coming back hungry enough to eat heart-attack inducing chips and kebabs.

Nomihoudai solves all of these problems. The drinks are delicious, the atmosphere is warm and cheerful, you can order tasty food, and most importantly… it’s. dirt. cheap.

20 minutes in...

The average price works out to be about Y1200, ($12-15, or about £10), depending whether or not you order food. You can drink as much as you can fit into your tiny human bladder in two hours.

...and then 5 minutes later

The selection includes over a dozen cocktails, whiskey, gin mixers and of course, sake. Overall, nomihoudai is an absolute bargain, and always makes a fantastic time out with friends.

Now I’m just really looking forward to ‘tabehoudai’… all you can eat.

    So, this is “all you can drink in two hours for $15 per person”? Cool.

    Hard to implement in the Anglo-states due to the binge culture. People drink a lot more and don’t have the shame as they do in Japan. This could digress to a ‘binge race’ if not implemented right.
