Nothing goes better with a cold beer than yakitori. The skewered and grilled chicken, mushrooms, and other delicacies at Yakitori Taisho are gently seasoned with a pinch of salt or the traditional sauce. Grab some friends, order up a cold one, and experience BBQ, hakata-style!
To relive your Japanese izakaya experience, come to YT and feast on the different Japanese snack foods to share or not. Don't forget to wash your bites down with a Sapporo on tap.
The block is filled with Izakayas! All the bustling makes the party overflow into the streets. I feel like I can get singed just by looking at the grillers. Everything is just so gnarly. This is what punk rock means to food. It's like J-punk food.
This is only my second, so I don't really know how to rate these yet. If I have to grade it on the same level as anything else I've seen in my life, I'd have to give it top notch rating. This is THE OPTIMAL Drinking environment. This is explained by tons of crazy food, lots of sake drinks, and ichiban & sapporo beer which always goes down easy.
There is a good amount of seating at the bar and the back room can fit about 7 tables totaling 21 people. So while this IS good for groups, it is not good for many groups at the same time. The wait wasnt so bad, even though we spent 2 hours there, there appears to be a quick turnover, it took 15 minutes for 4 of us to get fit at a t2o person table.
Fried oysters were ridiculous and the squid was out of it's own soft cranium. Okonomiyaki (pancake with a bunch of creatures in it) was okay but it took too long to eat and I wasn't fond of the idea of batter taking the place of beer in my stomach. I don't even know what we ordered. If I have advice for you, it is - Keep on ordering! Don't stop Don't Stop Don't stop!
