Teyandei in Nishiazabu, Tokyo

Caesar Salad

This was a cute and cozy little izakaya in a very quiet neighborhood not far from Roppongi (2-2-20-1 Nishiazabu, 03-3407-8127). It's too bad then that I liked the venue more than I liked the food. To be sure, nothing was of bad quality; after all, what's not to like about some juicy grilled fat-attached Iberian pork, or their take on Sichuan kou shui ji using tender (and boneless) Jidori chicken? But I prefer a more traditional approach to food, and that Caesar salad with sliced octopus above wasn't anything that got me excited. Maybe it would've been more fun had we sat downstairs at the counter watching the action in the kitchen.
