Along the narrow lanes of Akasaka are many restaurants and eateries of every shape and size, every type of budget. There are over 5 yakitori/kushiyaki restaurants, from the high-end Toriyoshi to the stand-up shop Miroku.
You must be thinking why would one stand up for a meal? This place is quite an interesting place and always busy. I walked past this many times and got attracted to the burning meat smell that permeated through the air. It’s late spring, so the doors were opened, so the force was strong that night. I just had to go in.
I was not disappointed, the food was delish! For the uninitiated, it can be quite daunting to see that the menu was almost filled with offals and organs. There’s the classic beef and pork belly, but the rest were all offals and strange parts. Just my kind of store.
None of the staff spoke English, the menu was only in Japanese, so you have to understand a bit of Japanese before you go, or you can just go blind and be adventurous!
I believe the service was good, I can see the counter staff chatting with customers. For me, I just silently ate my stuff. The peak hour is around 7-9 pm, when all the office workers came off their shifts and start their “nightshift”. The shop is at the junction of major crossings at Akasaka, so it was not difficult to locate. Just follow your nose.
