A curtain next to a big red paper lantern leads to this inviting eatery where kinki (deepwater white fish) are carefully grilled on a charcoal fire. Writers, intellectuals, and celebrities often drop by to enjoy the expensive fish—it costs ¥7,350, but is big enough to be shared by two people. If you don't eat your full portion of kinki, whatever's left will be incorporated into your soup course until you are gut-bustingly full. This place is in the basement a
rundown corner building just off Ichiban-cho near Hirose Dori.
