Charcoal-grilled meat on sticks is what it’s all about at this tiny, charming yakitori-ya, warm and rustic in its simplicity. Umeshiso tsukune (minced chicken topped with shiso leaves, sour plum and Japanese basil) and pork mé maki (garlic bolts wrapped with thinly sliced pork) are two of the best. Order the gobo saladÑa green salad with burdock root, carrot, and creamy sesame dressingÑto balance out the protein fest. A steady stream of ESL students, tourists, and locals keep both locations hopping.
