Toriki - Michelin-Starred Yakitori in Tokyo
Toriki is one of just a handful of yakitori restaurants in Tokyo to have earned a Michelin Star, quite a feat for a place specializing in cuisine as seemingly simple as grilled chicken skewers. Yakitori is typically consumed as a cheap accompaniment to drinks at an izakaya, but here it's taken to the next level.
The meal typically lasts about two and a half hours and the food is served at quite a slow pace, meaning that there is time to relax and enjoy some drinks between each delicious skewer of perfectly grilled chicken. If you don't mind a slow and slightly drawn-out meal, you will enjoy the experience of eating at Toriki!
Reservations / Access
The restaurant is located a quick 3-minute walk from Kinshicho Station and can be spotted by the large lantern hanging outside.
- I live in west Tokyo and spend most of my time thinking about food or going bouldering.
