My favorite piece was the one that's called Tsunagi, one of the vessels that ran from the chicken heart to liver. Each skewer contains the parts from 6-7 chickens and I love the slightly crunchy texture and just the right amount of fat inside the vessels. I am usually not a chicken tail person but the piece was fatty and delicious, grilled with a slight burnt surface giving it a good, smoky bite. And the price is ridiculously reasonable - everything costs 140 yen which in today's exchange rate amount to HKD$9 or slightly over 1 US Dollar. You can easily have a more than satisfying, sumptuous dinner here in less than US$20, sake included. Amazing deal.
