This chicken liver is the bar's special.
Each person can order it up to 2 skewers. However, their menu says that you should order only one skewer at a time.

But the staff told me that you can order 2 skewers in your first order to have a second one before it is sold out.

Even though, you order 2 skewers, It will firstly come as 1 skewer on purpose. When you finish the first one, the second one you order will come later, or you can ask for a second one when you are ready.

You can always enjoy freshly grilled chicken skewer!

You can choose between medium rare or well-done.
If you don't like how you ordered your grilled liver, they also offer it as medium rare with salt and sesame oil instead of barbecue sauce. (as pictured above)

Have you eaten something very Japanese?I would introduce 3 different types of Japanese local foods to tourists from foreign countries. I think some people might dislike them because of the uniqueness in texture.
