Readers, you ready for the highest robatayaki joint in the world? Inakaya currently boasts this title, but it’s really an unneeded gimmick, if you ask me. Their robata counter is one of the prettiest in the city; plates and plates of colorful vegetables, meats and seafood are spread out flat in front of the patrons, and at the wave of a finger, kneeling chefs will pass the ingredient of your choice onto their cute little (OK, maybe not so little) wooden paddles and grill them to perfection, for your unrestrained consumption. Inakaya’s got some crazy good corn—naturally sweet, with that oh-so-irresistible aroma that’s not unlike a bag of freshly popped kernels. I also recommend their buttery pumpkin slices, mushrooms, scallops and gargantuan king crab legs. You should know that Inakaya’s not only about the robata—they’ve got teppanyaki stations and a sushi/sashimi bar too—but DEFINITELY do the robata while you’re there.
