Now here's something you don't expect to find in the middle of Roppongi Hills - an old-fashioned down-to-earth izakaya. The specialty at Sakanaya Rokuzo is fish and seafood from around Japan, served raw, basket-steamed or charcoal-grilled. The grill menu also offers a good selection of tempting, meatier items like miso-marinated pork belly, tsukune with yuzu-kosho oroshi, and heirloom Iwate chicken.

There's a choice of a dozen good standard craft sake and five varieties of kokuto-joshu (brown-sugar shochu) to drink. Lunch is served until 3pm weekdays, 4pm weekends. Budget around Y3000-4000 at dinnertime.
