survival Japanese: assortment

When in doubt and looking at an unreadable menu, look for the words 盛り合わせ, which means assortment.If you can understand the words following it, even better, otherwise you might get an assortment of raw liver or something ;)

Just kidding. Usually they have assortments of chicken skewers (various parts of the chicken, and I mean from all over the chicken), or assortments of sashimi (raw fish), etc. I've never seen an assortment of raw liver, as there's usually only one type of liver available.
