A place to down a bottle or two of soju ( 20% alcohol ) with a set meal, approximately 7,000W per grilled fish, served with rice, miso soup and pickles. Very fast and friendly service.

Grilled fish is a better alternative to bbq beef amd pork-- healthier and more reasonably priced ($30 vs $80). The market is lined with several fish restaurants, so use your gutfeel to choose the best griller who can entice you to come inside their place.
