TOKYO | Taishū Sumibiya-tori Okuman Jinbōchō-ten is an izakaya in Kanda that’s a perfect example of the high standards for food in Tokyo. It’s not a place that comes up when you do research, and isn’t worth seeking out as such, but we’re writing about it to encourage you to be adventurous in your eating.

We stumbled across the place early in the morning one day (it’s open until 3am every day) and noticed the lights on an people inside. As soon as we walked through the front door, the unmistakable smell of yakitori hit us and we knew we’d found the right spot for a snack at this hour. There were a surprising number of people in the venue given the hour – surely a good sign. Looking around, it was clear that this was a local’s spot. Nothing fancy about it, and not a word of English to be seen. We took a seat at the bar, in front of the man operating the grill, loaded up Google Translate on our phones and typed in “chef’s choice”. We showed the man operating the grill the translation and he nodded and smiled. Asking for a biru (beer) didn’t require any app.

A short wait later, an assortment of delicious yakitori was placed in front of us – some skin, thigh, liver, and heart. We ate it, paid our bill, and left totally satisfied. The moral of the story, is that in Japan it’s hard to find bad food – follow your nose and you’ll rarely be disappointed.
