    The pork and spicy yakitori are killer, and so is the bacon-wrapped enoki. Karaage rounds out a great time, and the sashimi was delicious.

    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.

    The small free salad and soup while you wait for your meal is a nice touch. The prices are reasonable as well.

    Fast, filling and cheap Japanese grilled food and soups plus tasty cocktails. Kushi means "stick" and refers to the skewered meats, seafood and vegetables cooked over coals at the restaurant. Read more

    The ramen bowls are enormous. The yakitori grilling can get quite smokey so you might want to sit in the conservatory.
