Torishige 鳥茂 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I would never have found out about Torishige if not for CB and Mutsumi who I met during dinner at Den. See post here

When they mentioned this place was a favorite of Chef Yoshi Takazawa (yes, of THE Takazawa where I had one of my most memorable meals in Tokyo, read about it here), I knew I had to cancel my reservations and come here instead for my very last dinner in the city.

Although its address says Shibuya, Torishige is actually nearer to Shinjuku Station 

I specifically requested to be seated at the bar where I could see all the grilling action. 

My hotel concierge did an outstanding job. There were people waiting to be seated, but they
kept the best seat in the house for me!

More seating upstairs, although it's not as fun

Here at Torishige, you use sticks instead of chopsticks

Grilling action. I wish I could insert the intoxicating aroma here.

The menu is all japanese

But Sakamaki-san, the owner-chef, made my life super easy. Everything he fed me
was the best, I couldn't decide which my favorite was. 

I highly recommend you order every single stick I had.

Pork Tongue


Pork Tsukene or Meatball

The softest pig organ, the piece that connects the tongue to the throat. 

And what insanity is this? Japanese beef topped with uni topped with caviar!!!

It was no ordinary japanese beef, either. Here's a virtual tissue while you drool on my dinner.

Larger Intestines

You won't miss it, it's conveniently located inside the toilet! Lol!
