Dinner with Naoto, Elaine and Aya
Kuruma-ya is in the Ebisu Garden Place basement outside of Ebisu station (JR and Metro). Below Morgan Stanley Japan's offices, apparently it is popular with Naoto's former co-workers and there were a lot of suits.
We ordered the 2400 yen set menu which came with a few small starters like tofu and grated daikon (大根おろし) and drinks. Black vinegar (黒酢) is really popular in Japan now and they had a good black vinegar cassis drink. The set came with 5 yakitori -- I hate liver, so I substituted and got a wing (手羽先), scallion and chicken (ねぎま), small ground chicken ball (つくね), an asparagus wrapped in shiso leaf, and ground chicken with egg. So good :)
