Craving some meat on a stick? Get yo azz over here.
They have an extensive izakaya menu complete with land animals, sea creatures, and veggies.
I took my friend here last night because he had never been, or even heard about it. Since I ate here once and liked it, I suggested coming here instead of Sasaya.
We were immediately seated upon arrival at the bar surrounding the grill. Front row seats! Yay!
Items we ordered:
Agedashi tofu- my fave! I love the sauce it came in so much that I made the waiter leave the sauce so I could put it over my rice. What? I'm Asian, I like rice with everything. The tofu itself was very good, lightly fried and flavorful. So good that we asked for a second order. Oink.
Tomato, green pepper and mushroom skewers- pretty self-explanatory and standard kabob.
Grilled scallops- I love scallops, but this dish was a disappointment. Too dry and a bit overcooked. I guess I enjoy my scallops seared way better. Would not recommend.
Tsukune (chicken meatballs)- Great dish! Love balls! Get this if you love balls on a stick!
Rib eye steak- Ehhh.. this was alright.. pretty forgettable. A bit too rare for me.
Quail eggs- OMG. I love quail eggs!! I could eat quail eggs forever. These are so cute and petite. Perfect for a dainty girl like moi.
Dark meat chicken with scallions- decent meat, but not as good as the meatballs!
All in all a very enjoyable meal. It was a bit cramped at the bar, but I got used to it after a while. Good, attentive service which is very important to me. I like having my water glass filled, especially when eating food that makes your thirsty.
