For chicken lovers, yakitori lovers and lovers of all things drool worthy, Toritama has been a staple in great Japanese dining for years, and is now gracing Glenealy Street with its mouth watering selection! The concept is simple, you can dig in to over 25 different parts of chicken, from its soft bones, thigh and heart to its wings, skin and white meat. Some for the more adventurous, some for the average meat lover, but all cooked to make you incredibly moreish! Though I think watching each skewer being made in front of you adds to this effect.
Despite making their name in chicken, their menu features many heroes such as their Provolone Cheese skewer, something that deserves to be enjoyed 2 or 3 times during the night depending on your cheese addiction. If like me you love strong flavors, dig into their Grilled Garlic with Tamari Soy Sauce, its got all the punch and thankfully non of the lingering garlic breath. Their homemade pickles are a great way to kick off the meal and before you even think about ordering dessert, find space to chow down on their Rice with Dashi soup, the plum broth with send you into a soothing state like no other. With so many incredible dishes packed with such unique flavors, its impossible to try everything you want in one sitting, I've been twice and I'm still making my way through the menu.
I've got to say hands down the best yakitori in Hong Kong, but you'll have to try it to believe it! I'm looking forward to another Toritama food-baby when I visit their original branch in Japan next month, and you can be sure I'll be throwing up another post after that visit.
