The specialty of the house is kushi-yaki: small servings of meat, fish, and vegetables cut into bits and grilled on bamboo skewers. There's nothing ceremonious or elegant about kushi-yaki; it resembles the more familiar yakitori, with somewhat more variety to the ingredients. Higo-no-ya's helpful English menu guides you to other delicacies like shiitake mushrooms stuffed with minced chicken; bacon-wrapped scallops; and bonito, shrimp, and eggplant with ginger. The
restaurant is a postmodern–traditional cross, with wood beams painted black, paper lanterns, and sliding paper screens. There's tatami, table, and counter seating.
