Japanese pubs, collectively known as izakayas, have been popping up all over lately, bringing spirited drinking and a motley crew of snacks wherever they go. At Qoo Robata Bar, the food runs a delicious gamut from restorative rice porridge and onigiri rice balls to grilled yakitori, and includes awesomely crisp chicken skin, beef liver, and quail eggs wrapped with bacon. Drinking is encouraged. Had we not been on our second glasses of sake, we may not have enjoyed the little bowl of grayish, raw diced octopus suspended in what looked like mucus. But we were, and we did. And we loved it.
