I phoned my uncle and ascertained that the name of the restaurant is Sumida
(named after the river near the arena) and that of the dish is Chanko-nabe
( nabe = cookpot), the sumo wrestlers' main meal.  I think its recipe should
be simple, for it is cooked every day by younger sumo wrestlers themselves.
