Sumiyaki (yakitori restaurant) 炭焼き

I found this place on Teramachi a few months ago when mum was in town - she LOVES yakitori! It was not bad as far as Yakitori places go however it did have a curiously Italian edge....  quite sophisticated in its own way but not exactly what I was looking for on this particular occasion. Worth a look if you are in the area but I wouldn't go out of my way to seek it out.   Just south of Oike on Teramachi  - east side of the street.  The drinks menu is quite large and reasonably priced.

Here's a few things from the menu:
grilled tomato and mozzarella salad above / yakitori with parmesan below
grilled duck breast salad
Tsukune (seasoned chicken mince) with raw yolk (from super fresh and delicious eggs) to dip into
Chicken with very fine baby leeks
grilled mushrooms with soy/egg yolk sauce. There were several vegetarian choices here including daikon below and pencil leek/asparagus in the image under that
If you desire yakitori sauce on your chicken (instead of salt) you need to ask for Tare  - pronounced  a little like "TaRay". If you pronounce it like you would hare/hair... you will not be understood.
