"Just a quick one?" Famous last words. Almost 3 hours later (standing), my dining partner and I were each very happily ¥5000 poorer and a lot drunker than we had planned to be. Oh, and many calories richer! ちょい虎 (Choi Tora or literally translated as little tiger) serves Kappo (割烹 which literally means "to cut" and "to cook") dishes, tachinomi (standing bar) style. Kappo is traditionally found in more formal settings and served in a seasonal course menu. So ちょい虎 has turned the concept a little upside down: offering Kappo quality dishes in a modern standing bar setting. I have never seen anything like it. The quality of the food and sake is top-notch. So good we forgot that we were on our feet for nearly 3 hours. My go-to tachinomi from now, I'm sure.
