â–² Review (Shikigin
(Dining alone): It's close to the office, so I often go there with friends after work. Aguyang is reasonable for the price, and the liver is perfect as a snack for alcohol, so it seems that people tend to drink too much if they only eat alcohol here. I only tried steamed agu, but when I heard from my friends, grilled fish and soy sauce crab were also delicious, so I plan to visit at lunchtime next time .
