This izakaya offers plate upon plate of yakitori and kushiyaki (Japanese-style skewered and grilled items) in a decidely relaxed atmosphere. The ox tongue is exceptional—succulent, soft, and flavored with just the right amount of salt. Kushiyaki staples, such as chicken wings and shiitake mushrooms, are also excellent. Nightly specials are displayed on a chalkboard. And in true izakaya fashion, Nan Tei offers a well-ranging sake list to accompany the bite-sized noshes. This is a great place for a casual Japanese meal with good food and a couple of drinks.
