Torito

Yakitori in Northern Higashiyama

This is part of the new wave of yakitori (skewers of chicken, and other meats or vegetables) restaurants in Kyoto that are updating the old standards in interesting and tasty ways. The food is very good and will likely appeal to non-Japanese palates. Dishes include negima (long onions and chicken) and tsukune (chicken meatballs). Best to book ahead.
