Another chain izakaya in Yokosuka, Nijyu Maru is typical for it's species.  With a clientele consisting mostly of business men having after work drinking parties, they are a slick operation ready with the drinks and little dishes.  Quality is not really a factor here.  It's located at the top floor of the big building opposite Chuo station which contains a pachinko parlor, arcade, some clothing shops, a 100 yen store, a "used stuff" store, and one of our preferred karaoke spots.  There is another similar izakaya called Hokkaido right next door.  They also have the electronic menu which we did not use as it wasn't working until about half way through the meal.

Mandatory appetizer

My son and I tried it out and they had cha-han on the menu for him, along with tamago.  I ordered the rest of the dishes and some sake to meet the drink quota.  For some reason they made the cha-han last, so he had to wait a long time for his main dish.  Of course by that time I forgot to take a picture of it, oh well.

Nihonshu (sake)

The rest of the dishes were just ok, nothing to get excited about.

Stewed intestines and tamagoyaki

Mega potato salad...actually quite tasty!

Little chewy gyoza, onigiriyaki

Garlic chicken with miso dip
