Pick and choose off the massive menu at Otsuka's famed Souten, an upscale yakitori eatery that lives up to its fancy reputation. One can't-miss dish is the shiitake-flavoured tsukune meatball, a juicy and powerful creation that rises above the standard. The adventurous among us might want to order the chicken sashimi plate, which includes some truly mind-boggling offerings. Don't forget to hang around and order a cup of nihonshu or shochu from the impressive drink selection.
