Cha Ra is an izakaya very close to our apartment and just within walking distance for lunch. However, they are usually closed, but I was pleased to see recently a sign out front indicating they would be open for lunch from Wed - Friday (and weekends). So I stopped in today to check it out.
It's a nice bar, with a huge wide natural wood counter top. The vibe is Okinawan, but not oppressively so. It is a bar, so smoking might happen.
So, a nice surprise for lunch! I might meet my wife for lunch there now and then.
