Open 5-10pm (LO) daily.
Sun: Open Sundays

You'll find high-quality skewered morsels that are deep-fried with a light touch here, and ordering is simple - just tell them when to stop. (Don't worry, you can specify in advance any ingredients you can't eat.) Some highlights are the Nagoya cochin, Iberico pork, and fried quail eggs that somehow have a soft-boiled consistency. Drinks include beer, sake and reasonably priced wines. Budget around Y3500-4000 for a filling meal with drinks, or around Y7,500 if you stay for all forty items on the monthly menu.
