Yakitori Totto @ Midtown West New York, NY

after those chuan’er that we had in flushing, we headed to yakitori totto to have more chuan’ers. ive been looking for good yakitori place because yakitori taisho was kinda disappointing. wanted to go to this place forever and we actually made a trip there before but it wasnt open.

they open at 5:30pm on sundays. we got there around 5:15 and were the first in line. all the staffs were smoking outside the restaurant. by the time they opened the line was already 10 deep.

chicken skin – i didnt really like that they dont marinate stuff. seasoning is lacking, you basically have to put salt/pepper/spicy stuff on by yourself.

i wasn’t a huge fan of this place because
1. altho everything was perfectly grilled and very tender, but i think the meat wasn’t too fresh.
2. the yakitori was kinda bland. i would like it with more flavors other than just salt and pepers. the taste of chicken gets boring after a while. everything tasted pretty much the same. i wish they were marinated to give it more flavors.

the good: yakitori totto is relatively cheap comparing to other places.

man i really wish Shin Sen Gumi Yakitori is on the east coast, id go there everyday! the search for good yakitori continues…

  1. O.M.G. I just got so incredibly hungry from reading your post. Great photos! Seriously though, I wish I could get Japanese food right now. It doesn’t matter that it’s only 10:30am.

  2. Gorgeous post! I spent five years in Tokyo and while I regularly find decent sushi here and there, Yakitori is strangely trickier. I found a great Yakitori in LA the other day and actually felt compelled to write a poem! I guess I am keen.
