IKEBUKURO: NanTai-San for some old skool Yakitori

A very very old school Izakaya that most likely rarely see's any foreigners.  The staff were all in their 50's and seemed to live and breath Yakitori... But this is actually a regular spot for a good friend of mine who has an office nearby.

Rarely do I spot red label Sapporo... super smooth

Spicy carrots

Raw liver with some sesame seed oil dip.

Very chunky pieces of Yakitori.

Chicken skin and Liver

I'm not much of a Sour drinker because on occasion they use flavored syrup vs real slices of grapefruit or lemon... this night I had a few Grapefruit Sours.

Yakitori sticks start at 115yen.

This was great... salami, cucumber and cheese.

Green tea sour

Mega Jockey beer... too filling.. no thank you~.  Overall the amount of meat on the sticks were bigger than most but our 2nd floor seats got very smokey from the grilling sticks on the 1st floor.  Definitely a place for the boys but I don't think I'd go back unless my Japanese friend wanted to have a few sticks here... it just didn't have much of a welcoming atmosphere.
