That was awesome. See, one of my favorite Japanese bar snacks is yasai sutiku, or basically crudite with a bit of savory miso paste as a dip. But these guys brought out two kinds of miso, one of which was on a little wooden paddle and grilled over a flame, giving it a delightfully smoky aroma. And yes, the other miso was good too, with a smooth and comfortingly hearty taste. They've really gotta provide more veggies though.
