The charcoal-grilled yakitori and seasonal side dishes here are accompanied by impressive fresh and grilled vegetables. One specialty of the house is chicken skin that's been marinated for three days, then charcoal-grilled five times to painstakingly burn off all the fat. Nagoya-style chicken wings, deep-fried, then coated with a sweet sauce, are another crowd pleaser.

Denbei's drinks menu lists new bottles of craft sake every day, although these may sell out towards the end of the evening, so early arrival is recommended. Budget around Y3,000 at dinnertime for food and drink.
