Back in the day I lived in Ebisu for about 4 years and enjoyed searching for new reasonable spots and years later I was pleasantly surprised to see Aburidori Baricho still open with a solid 3.53pt foodie ranking.
Menu's in English!
Order's are taken on this little piece of paper of items written in Japanese... but it will test your J --> E Skillz.
All you can eat cabbage Otoshi arrived... this is great. Normally otoshi consists of something so insanely boring like seasoned bean sprouts or a bit of potato salad.
Portions were a bit larger than my last visit to Gonpachi Shibuya.
Of course... my favorite Bonjiri (Chicken Butt)... big pieces.
I'm not a fan of Nankotsu (fairly hard cartilage) but this was a bit more soft and there was so much meat on it... If you are not a fan you gotta try it here.
Closed with a stick of mochi.
Shop was a really really smokey mess... they closed the front door due to the cold evening and well we all smelled like Yakitori by evenings end. I guess that might be part of the attraction here... Full house and a small mix of foreigners too.
Free Popsicle of choice for dessert.
Oh, there are baskets to store and hide your jackets away from the smokey smoke.
I'll definitely be back again but highly suggest their 5-7pm Happy Hour too... can't recall what the drink deals were but hey, we all love HH. Oh, staff was friendly and beers came out quickly.
