This is a good place to dive into the world of izakaya, or Japanese bar food. Coveted private rooms are the place to be: Settle in with friends, order Sapporo on tap, and tuck into delicately steamed scallop dumplings, crispy garlic angel-hair noodles, or Japanese fried chicken served with a ponzu dipping sauce. For tableside theatrics, get mackerel seared by a blowtorch-wielding server or the sizzling sticky rice prepared in a tiny, smoking cauldron.
