Wanted to try someplace super friendly on the wallet and came across Shimon-Ya Yakitori on my favorite foodie site Tabelog. Sticks start at only 100 yen!
All dudes with one or 2 couples... fortunately the e-cigarettes are gaining popularity and there were unusually no smokers until the very end of our stay.
Motsu nikomi rice... blah.
Liver! I think... most were 100 yen.
Draft and bottle beers are 500 yen.
My American friend likes to order without any seasoning... just plain. Rarely do I see people order it this way but there was a word he was using that sounded like "soy-yaki" that didn't do well for our Southeast Asian waiter. Then he said "aji-nashi" or flavorless.
Bottled beers are Sapporo! Also spotted someone drinking Ebisu.
Overall its a good spot to spend an hour but I wouldn't stay long as its a bit cramped and smokers will easily fill up this tiny spot with smelly smoke.
