Kyushu-style charcoal-grilled chicken is the tasty specialty here. It's well charred and a bit chewy, just like it's prepared in Miyazaki, and there's also an impressive extra-garlicky version. If you're feeling adventurous, the assorted raw-chicken platter (Y980) is one of the best we've had in Tokyo. The small sake list is well-chosen to match the food. Budget around Y5000 for dinner and drinks.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From Bento.com.
