Mashica, a popular izakaya-style wine bar from Osaka, has chosen Fukuoka for its second shop, and is located just off of Shoninbashi-dori. The sommelier owner, Masakazu Imao, curates a selection of around 100 varieties of natural wine, and some of the dishes are made from his mother’s recipes. Meanwhile, an Italian chef prepares authentic handmade pasta and pâté. To order, write what you want on one of the slips on the counter and clip it to the clothespin marked hatchu (order). When your food and drink arrive, move the slips to the sumi (completed) pin. Fun spot!
