Yakitori Totto

I’m FINALLY reviewing this place. This place is amazing – so far my favorite yakitori spot in the City :] AND it’s a lot closer to my apt than St. Marks. Came here back in July…. it’s kinda tough to get a spot, especially last minute, but somehow it was managed…  The experience is better shown with less words and more pictures. Enjoy.

sake + kirin


TAKO WASA: raw octopus marinated in mildly spicy wasabi sauce


NANKOTSU: soft bone
Surprisingly tender for bone. YUM. I loved it, especially sprinkled with a little bit of the spice.


HIZA NANKOTSU: soft knee bone
Delicious tender meat around the crunch of the bone <3

Pork Offal [aka Intestines]
It was SOOOOO fatty and delicious and juicy – Probably the best intestines I’ve ever had [and hhelllooo, Taiwan, I’ve had a lot]


CHICKEN OYSTER: rare part of thigh (sot l’y laisse)
SESERI: neck
Tender and delicious.




SHIRAUO KARA AGE: deep-fried tiny sardines
w/ green tea powder & sea salt
These are SOOOO addicting. Give me a bowl and pop me in front of a football game, Sunday, and it’ll be gone in 2 seconds.

Spicy Sauteed Mixed Mushrooms with Sticky Mtn Yam
I think I ate pretty much the whole bowl.. I love mushrooms and sticky mountain yam… so, go figure.

KAWA: skin
Not as amazing as Kenka’s… but still amazing !!!

Pork Neck & Duck + Scallions

Duck + Scallion


SHISHITOU TSUKUNE: chicken meat ball stuffed into jap. green pepper
I adore yakitori chicken meatballs and I love yakitori shishito peppers, so why not combine the two and make babies? Delish!


MUNE: breast w/ wasabi & salt

ネギ間 (東京ネギ)

NEGIMA: thigh & scallion


PIRIKARA MUNE NIKU: chicken breast topped w/ spicy red paste

ササミしそ巻き (梅肉づけ)

The real way to eat prawns/shrimp… the WHOLE thing, shell and all, head first ;D


NAGAIMO: japanese sticky yam w/ soy sauce
Love love love sticky mountain yam!!!!


KOBE BEEF GYUTAN: Kobe Beef tongue
Thick and succulent. Juicy and full of smokey flavor.

黒豚 からしレモン

KURO BUTA KARASHI LEMON: organic pork belly w/ lemon & mustard

黒豚 ねぎポン

KURO BUTA NEGI PON: organic pork belly w/ scallion & ponzu

Honestly? Can anyone ever go wrong with pork belly? Delicious last bites for the end of the meal.

My sticks.
