Late night food in Shinjuku at Alps izakaya
Cheap eats at a backstreet izakaya in Shinjuku
If you visit Shinjuku, it's got to be at night time. And if you're up late, this place stays open all hours.
This is a cheap and very casual no-frills izakaya hidden in the back streets of Shinjuku.
If you're up late in Shinjuku and need a bite to eat, this will do you nicely.
It serves all the usual izakaya classic dishes - grilled fish, sushi, various pork and chicken yakitori etc. Ice cold beer and sake served too, of course.
It's pretty noisy and rowdy - we were there about midnight/1am on a Friday night - and it does get smoky as most isakayas are smoking restaurants. But that just adds to the atmosphere, right?!
How to get there
Here's a Google map of the location of Alps in Shinjuku.
It's just to the north of the huge Shinjuku Toho building, so you can use that as a reference while walking around.
