TT Skewer is tiny (so you likely won’t be eating in), it’s cash-only, and the only two things on the menu are hotpot and skewers. Your general game plan should be to walk in, order a few skewers of things like lamb and chicken gizzards, and then take them to go, eating them like savory popsicles while you walk around the city. It’s fast, easy, and the meat is always well-seasoned and delicious.
