Met up with Scott in Oizumi Gakuen for a few drinks and of course the easiest place is Yakitori. Checked the foodie blog and Kabura-Ya had some decent reviews but most interested me was the 80yen Yakitori sticks and the black Oden!
Lots of small food and stick items from veggies, seafood to meats.
Beer and sake start at a friendly 380yen
Black Oden! Egg, potato, white raddish and konbu... yum!
Liver... seemed a bit on the pre-frozen side.
Motsu-Nikomi... a must and always good wherever you go.
Fried sticks too. Scallops, Mushrooms and Pork with onions here.
Overall a very cozy local neighborhood spot with a nice mix of lone diners, couples and salarymen. The food wasn't anything outstanding except for the Oden but you'll definitely have an easy going time here. Last call was at 11pm on a Monday so FYI.
