Food on Sticks! Kushitomo

Izakaya Spotlight: Kushitomo 炭焼 串Tomo (くしとも)

Kushitomo is a little kushiyaki (food on skewers cooked over a charcoal grill) place that recently opened in Towada. The menu isn't very large, but everything is delicious.

Note: By default the skewer items are seasoned with natural sea salt, but you can request tare sauce if you prefer. Plates come with extra salt, but the skewers are already seasoned so it's best to try it before dipping into the salt. The minimum order for kushiyaki menu items is 2 skewers per item. Menu prices do not include tax.
