I'm a fairly adventurous eater... and what we got here was definitely a strange array of dishes. But hey, it's Japanese cuisine; what do you expect?
This is a cozy little restaurant on the outskirts of the city. You basically eat at a bar while the chef and his helpers prepare food on the other side. Intimate and friendly, the atmosphere opens you up to the adventure that's about to be laid before you. Primarily fish dishes, the 14 plates served were mostly hits (the giant oyster was a standout,) but I did have to hit the sake pretty hard a couple of times to get a few mouthfuls down! We were lucky to be joined at the bar by a very friendly group of regulars, making the evening on whole a memorable one.
