Okinawan and Taiwanese cuisine are the main offerings at this lively drinking spot in the middle of the Toranomon Yokocho bar-izakaya complex. Casual small-plate dishes like Okinawan rafti (braised pork belly) and Taiwanese chozume sausage are the mainstay of the kitchen, along with less-often-seen items like deep-fried lamb on skewers.
Drinks include fruit-infused awamori from Okinawa as well as beer, cocktails, and wine by the bottle from the wine bar next door. A visit to Tama is as much about the boisterous atmosphere as it is about the food and drink, though, and the staff go out of their way to keep things lively and friendly. Budget around Y3,000 for food and drink at dinnertime, and Y1,000 for lunch.
