You'll find high-quality skewered morsels that are deep-fried with a light touch here, and ordering is simple - just tell them when to stop. (Don't worry, you can specify in advance any ingredients you can't eat.) Some highlights are the crunchy prawns, the Berkshire pork and the large asparagus spears, and Momo no Shizuku sake from Kyoto stands up to the fried flavors. Budget around Y4000-4500 for a filling meal with drinks.
