Meat sushi is the unusual specialty of this popular izakaya - sushi rice with toppings like Iberico pork, foie gras, teriyaki chicken, beef tongue, and wagyu sukiyaki. Most of the meat toppings here are cooked, or at least lightly seared, but you can also find sashimi-style raw horsemeat and raw chicken if you're so inclined.
Nikuzushi's signature torisashi platter is particularly recommended - very thinly sliced, fatty cuts of beef short ribs, seared with a blowtorch at your table and seasoned with salt and pepper. There's a compact sake list that's been assembled to go well with meat. Budget around Y3,500 for food and drink at dinnertime.
