Seafood in Nara / Robata Uogen

After work last night I decided to stop by one of my favorite seafood robata's in Nara, Robata Uogen.  It is located slightly west of Yamato-Saidaiji station in the Saidaiji district of Nara and is roughly only a 2 minute walk from the station.  The place is often very busy as it is a local favorite for fresh seafood.  Inside it is very small and cozy with almost a "seafood market" kind of atmosphere to it.  The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful, and there is an English menu available as well.
