Chanko nabe with pirikara broth at Ichiriki

It doesn’t look  like it will all fit—the mushrooms, tofu, gobo, Chinese cabbage, the bamboo dispenser of chicken meatballs and more. And yet, it does, miraculously, all the goodies soaking up the spicy shoyu broth. When it’s time to fish them out, it’s like discovering treasure after treasure.
