This is just a great spot that's been around for years and has a steady following of regulars.
Seasoned Carrots are one of the specialties here... never had it anywhere else. And raw liver with sesame seed oil was tasty.
My previous entry:
I think this was one of the original founders that passed away.
This older gentleman with the hat sat next to us and we all started talking... he was first talking with the guy to his left but preferred chatting with us and later he'd invite us out to his favorite little mama-san bar.
Yakitori Garlic... very soft.
Another friendly customer to my right.
Its almost impossible not to meet friendly customers from a different era at these old skool Japanese yakitori spots with counter seating. Afterward we all went to our new friends favorite watering hole that he's been going to for over 30 years.
A little Karaoke and whiskey... another great unexpected ending long day in Ikebukuro.
Tsukemono by Mama-san.
The tiny foods at a mama-san "snack" bar... just something.
