After an evening of tasting almost decade-old sake with Yoramu, we found a yakitori restaurant around the corner. This is about a third of what we ate... I haven’t seen tsukune/chicken meatball in SF before but know it’s popular in Japan. I also really enjoyed the quail eggs, chicken skin and pork pieces.
The restaurant, Kushikura, is a decently large operation hidden inside a traditional wooden house (called a machiya). You’d never know from the outside there’d be so many people and sizzling skewers in there!
There is something satisfying about Crispy Brussels Sprouts. Crispy outer leaves and soft in the middle. So tasty they could become addicting.

Thinking about dinner plans tonight? Why not kick-start your weekend with some treats at our newly opened store?
With our choice yakitori cuts, dining and sharing has never been better. See you tonight!
I have always hated eating alone. But tonight, eating alone at this traditional yakitori place is a different story altogether. A very tipsy Japanese man seated right next to me made me realise that I can keep cool and maintain a very relaxed facet and yet still be very wary of my surrounding. #pissalley #yakitori #firstsolotrip #shinjuku #第一次solo #新宿 #첫번째솔로 #신주쿠
