Tori no Su is an izakaya located above my favorite liquor store (Hitomoto). For some reason I had never tried it so I gave it a shot last night. It's a bit louder and more boisterous than most izakayas I've been to, but it wasn't too bad. They had an english menu that made ordering easy.
|Otoushi and sake|
The otoushi (mandatory appetizer) was really tasty with some very salty fish and fish roe combined with blander but tasty re-hydrated tofu. I had a couple of pork belly on sticks as well as the yakitori combo. The pork belly was really good and the yakitori mix was more of a hit or miss affair. Mainly because I'm not super fond of cartilage, but the other stuff was quite good. Loved the liver. I also ordered a rice with chicken dish that complemented the other food nicely. I was definitely full when finished. Oh, and of course some hot sake to chase away the chill of winter.
Overall a pleasant experience and the food was very good.
