    Ask 'why takoyaki refers not only to octopus yaki, but to fish/chicken?..' They'll say 'it was a typo on the menu' and smile. Ask 'do you serve chawanmushi?..' and get another smiley no :-)) love them

    Japanese street food, alot of food on a stick. My favorite ramen in the city (enoki, add egg and pork). Try the fish collar grilled. And say yes to octopus balls and okonomiyaki.

    $14 for a pitcher of Sapporo is the way to go. Get the grilled/fried chicken skin as well. It's the best.
