Yakiton (charcoal-grilled pork on skewers) is the main dish here, but instead of a smoky izakaya the atmosphere is closer to a stylish wine bar, with a selection of wines by the glass (Y680-1000) to go with your skewers - a great combination.

Pork cuts include pleasantly fatty pork belly and assorted organ meats, and are Y160 per skewer, while vegetables like zucchini, turnips and shiitake are Y180. There are also starters, salads and pastas to round out your meal. The voluminous coriander salad is especially recommended, as is the very cheesy macaroni au gratin.

Most seating is at the counter, although there's one table and a small tatami area. Budget around Y3000 for food and drink.
