Opened last February, Number Shot, whose name is a play on words with namba shotto (“whatcha doin’” in Kyushu dialect) prides itself in serving fresh Kyushu seafood and meals made mostly from locally sourced ingredients. Grab a counter seat with a kitchen view and watch the chefs do their thing! Try the mentai tamago buta maki (mentai rolled omelet wrapped in pork belly)—an original combination of two local faves. Also, don’t miss the daily specials and the popular seafood rice gratin. Thirsty? Then sit back and relax with an original shochu cocktail. If you appreciate a little sophistication and style with your izakaya meal – go!
