i had been waiting to check out this place ever since last winter. they finally opened up couple weeks ago and we had chance to go last night. i was extremely excited about it because there is no good yakitori place in boston. we had a reservation at 7:30pm. it was such a horrible night to be out. it usually takes me 25 mins to drive to the south end, but yesterday took me an hour and half. i had to take a million detours due to the corp. challenge bs. everywhere was blocked. i was stuck in traffic and of course i got lost at the end. anyways, i got there an hour late for our reservation with a major headache. thankfully they were not super busy so we still had a table.
guess whats this?
yakitori zai was good. fresh ingredients and well prepared. BUT it wasnt cali shin sen gumi good! it’s overpriced for what it is. shin sen gumi in LA is 10 times better than yakitori zai, but probably 1/3 the price. i still recommend to try once, but it wouldnt visit it regularly.
this place gets 3.8/5 bunny belly.
