If you’ve ever had a hankerin’ for a little deep fried squid cartilage — and let’s face it who hasn’t? — then point to the poster on the wall at Ichiza (that doubles as a menu for the place) and get yourself a plateful of the little nippers.

They’re surprisingly good — sorta like popcorn shrimp, only a bit more toothsome — and go quite nicely with a glass of junmai daiginjo sake.

And while you’re at it, grab some oysters in ponzu sauce, some jalopy fried rice, slimy raw wasabi octopus, and a little albacore sashimi, for one of the better Japanese snack meals around town.
