Will be in Tokyo later this week. Am interested in getting some recs for places offering high quality nabe. Not looking for sukiyaki or shabu shabu but more generic hotpot maybe fugu or some other fish say monkfish (anko) specialists. Last year went to a very good place near Ikebukuro specialising in duck nabe, the rec came from John Gauntner`s Tokyo Izakaya guide. Bonus if the place has a good sake selection like the duck nabe place did.
Also interested to know about any worthwhile modern style izakayas. Have enjoyed Buri and Himonoya on previous visits and enjoyed Seigetsu in Kugurazaka last Sunday, amazing green tea panna cotta amongst other things.
Anyone know anything about the following places which I have read about in UK and Japanese publications: Miyashita, Issei, Galali, Sasano?
