KUMA Izakaya

Lyonnais dine close to where they dwell for the most part, but the lure of this izakaya’s killer donburi and strong sake has them traipsing across town to Villeurbanne. The ramen is so flavorful you’ll have to resist the urge to lick the bowl clean—but tasty matcha desserts like tiramisu with adzuki bean paste or the gourmand will take your mind off the impulse. The ambience is casual and relaxed, but the place is tiny, so arrive early and prepare to rub elbows with the next table.
