Tomorrow night! June 5th. Free Beer! No kidding. I'll be at Flat in Futakotamagawa from 5:30 pm doing a live FM radio report (and having a drinking party like last week's bash at Taiho). Be there and when you walk in, say, "InterFM Yatsura" and get your first beer free (or drink of your choice!)

Here's information about Flat!

Mr. & Mrs. Shimodai - the folks who run Flat.

Finally! There's a new delicious Yakitori that just opened near my house. It opened on April 20th, 2012 so I went there last night to participate in the venue's fare and was quite pleased.

Flat - Look for the Akachochin (red lanterns!)

The shop's name is "Flat." It is a 5 minute walk from Futakotamagawa station on the Den-en-Toshi Line. (Two stops by express train - six by local train - from Shibuya). It is on the side of the station a few minutes walk from Takashimaya so it's a great place to go if the ladies want to go shopping too! 

Room for about 12 to seat on the first floor and a standing bar for four people or so. On the second floor, there is a tatami room that seats ten. 

Friendly staff and a spic and span cleanliness (always a must for the Gaijin Gourmet!)

The kitchen is kept spotless and anyone can easily view the food preparation. The standing bar is directly opposite the barbecue rack (to the left of this picture) so anyone can see how clean and spotless the facilities are.

It says, (ふらっと 炭火焼)"Flat Sumibiyaki" (sumibiyaki means "cooked over charcoal") 

All the cooked chicken items I had were very delicious. 

I don't like dethawed frozen meats and the menu at Flat had fresh chicken. Delicious. It is about ¥160 per piece, which is a tad bit pricy, but like I said, it is not frozen meats so the taste is superb... Good Yakitori never needs sauce and only salt. I don't even use salt so I can really taste good meat. This place has good quality chicken! Fresh!

The owner and head chef is Shimodai san. If you go there, tell him "Mike sent you!"

Looks like a nice place. Have you by chance encountered any decent noodle shops or yakitoris within a km of Shibuya station, preferably the north side? Most places that I stumble across look rather filthy and I had an unfortunate cockroach incident a few years ago (before I lived here) at a yakitori near Mark City. I wish we had something like the Sangenjaya udon shop that you recommend. However, I found a nice recently opened shio-ramen shop on Kyu Yamate dori next to the Denny's near 246. 俺流らーめん塩
