Aburiya

As the name implies (aburu means "to grill"), the specialty of the house is the shichirin. As soon as you sit down, one of these miniature braziers will be set in front of you. And apart from the initial appetizers -- cabbage leaves which you dip in a light oil infused with herbs and salt -- and your final shokuji (rice or noodles), just about everything on the menu is prepared in such a way that you can grill it yourself.
