Kaga Daiko/
Kanazawa: Yakitori

It's grimy, divey,
smoky and cramped,
but this, of course,
is all part of the
charm. The other
charming bit is the
ever-smiling and
joking owner who
will bang a drum
when you leave,
laugh maniacally and
wish you a good
night. This after
you've spent the
evening sidled up to
the bar eating skew-
er after skewer and
knocking back beers,
available in sizes
that range from
normal to comically
huge.

It's your standard
yakitori fare but
it's addictively
good: chicken and
leek, chunks of
pork, all the guts
you can handle and
some particularly
tasty chicken meat-
balls basted with a
sweet soy sauce. If
you want to pretend
to feel healthy,
order the enoki
mushrooms or aspara-
gus, but keep in
mind they'll both be
wrapped in little
blankets of bacon.

To bulk up your
meal, order a salty
miso-based soup
featuring chunks of
soft tofu, pork and
fresh scallions,
served from a mas-
sive, blackened
cauldron. This is
the perfect place to
eat cheap and feel
like a local.

The menu is all
Japanese but the
owner can speak a
bit of English.
