[Tokyo] Yakitori Imai 焼鳥今井
Rating: ❤❤❤❤ (4/5)
A lively night at Yakitori Imai - a modern and stylish restaurant with 30 seats along a big counter. Opened in late 2016, the owner chef Takashi Imai moved from an intimate shop in Sendagi to this location in Jingumae. The offerings are a bit more gourmet here including homemade liver pate, grilled cheese and even a nice selection of natural wines. The chicken skewers are well-seasoned (the innards are especially fantastic) but the vegetables are not to be missed as well. Reservations are highly recommended as many walk-ins were turned away even on a weeknight. Three types of courses are available starting from ¥5200 plus you can order a la carte as well. We opted for the signature Yakitori Imai course (¥6800 per person) with 7 yakitori, 4 vegetables, a few sides plus a rice dish at the end.
Our course started with a creamy homemade chicken liver pate and vegetables salad.
