Torikizoku, a Must-Try 280 Yen Yakitori Heaven in Japan

Torikizoku is a casual Yakitori chain that has stores all over Japan. It is popular among all ages for its quality and price. Let's figure out what's so special about Torikizoku!

Feel free to follow favy!


Torikizoku, was established in Osaka and gradually expanded its stores nationwide. They offer all yakitori at ONLY ¥280, and it is what they are popular for! They have a huge variety of menu available, and people generally go there for a casual dinner and night out.

Chicken that they use is locally produced, and they stick chickens on a skewer by hand. Their original sauce is consisted of chicken, vegetables and fruits simmered together to extract natural umami.

I didn't expect this when I first entered Torikizoku, but their interiors are all made of wood! It creates warm and relaxing atmosphere, and it doesn't feel like you are in a Yakitori chain. It is also common for Yakitori restaurants to only have a counter seatings, but Torikizoku has table seats too! They have been improving their service and store itself to provide satisfying experience to all customers.


Their popular menu is called Momo or Mune Kizoku. Momo is chicken thigh and mune is chicken breast, and their flavor include sauce, salt and spice. This is a standard yakitori menu that every one love! Green onion is sandwiched in between chicken breast or thigh, and its sweetness goes really well with chicken's umami.
What I really recommend trying is their Tsukune Tare - tsukune is a chicken meatball and they dipped in their original secret tare (sauce). Believe me, it tastes like heaven. For those of you who like tare flavor, you will definitely love it.

If you like mochi, this is what you should try. Their Mochi-mochi Cheese Yaki is consisted of mochi with cheese and seaweed on top. With Torikizoku's exquisite tare, it just tastes so delicious. I swear, mochi lovers will go crazy.

Their side dishes are also must-try! If you feel like you want to try something different, you should definitely order cabbage! Some of you might be thinking, "why order cabbages at yakitori restaurant?" but believe it or not, cabbage always goes really well with yakitori and beer.

You also want to try their Takoyaki-style Chicken Ball! Crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, this is their original menu. If you are familiar with takoyaki, an octopus ball, think of this as a takoyaki without octopus. Chicken actually goes really well with takoyaki sauce, you'll know when you try!

Now it's time to find a store near you!

I think now you know that Torikizoku offers casual yet satisfying yakitori experience! Unfortunately there is no English website available, but it could be helpful in some situations, so I will put the link below. Check the link for more information about Torikizoku, their menu, and their campaigns! If you click "お店を探す", you will see a map of Japan with prefectures written on it. From there you can choose where you are and they'll take you to their store location page!
